The Suspender Story

Suspenders have been at the heart of the Kriss Soonik brand from the very beginning. But it has also become clear that we don´t use them like other lingerie brands would.

One of out signature pieces – the Kristel Suspender Top – is all about making the suspenders visible. It´s more about having the suspenders as a styling detail than a functional stocking holder. Wearing them casually on top of your jeans is anything but über sexy. It´s cool and unexpected.

And this was what took me on a journey to find other unexpected places for the suspender detail.

In our AW15 collection the Claire top with the suspender and button combo made the first test result public. But already then I knew there could be more to it. After all, this combination works well for a top but not for a bra. So I kept on testing.

Finally the eureka moment dawned on me – you can attach the suspender clip to the metal ring. And voila! Our SS16 Spiderweb Suspender Bra was born.

What´s great is that not only is it functional under clothes, you can also criss-cross the straps at the back, making the bra even more versatile.

Now that we´ve found this combination, we´re definitely not stopping there. Our AW16 collection is filled with gold suspender details for bras, bodies and slips. Here´s a little teaser what to look forward to 😉

3 Ways to Wear. Laura Disco Trousers.

These Disco Trousers can take you from dancing at a party to lounging in your living room – it all depends on how you style them.

The sexy cut-out details on the sides add spice to the sparkling harem track pants. They are equally cosy and flattering to your curves.

Fashionable crop tops are the best way to really show off the cool cut-out details on the sides.

But if you feel that the cut-outs are too “out there” for a street look, then you can always layer them with some fringing or lace. This way you can still see the details but in a more concealed way. It will definitely add a bit of mystery to the look.

Halloween Fashion Show

Last Saturday we put on quite a show at the Secret Brunch event in London. The fully sold-out event was themed as a Secret Temple and hosted more than 1000 guests for an epic daytime party.

party

The Halloween special edition of the event was shrouded in mystery – the location was announced on the same morning and all the guests were required to wear black capes and lace masks. This was a perfect setting for showing off our new collection and bestselling Classic items on the catwalk.

Our gorgeous models were styled as mysterious cat women wearing Kriss Soonik signature lace, fishnet and luxurious jersey pieces.

catwalk

As usual, most of the photography on the show day happens backstage. We had a lot of fun getting the girls ready, taking selfies and attaching suspenders to stockings. Kriss shared some inspirational words before sending the models off to the catwalk.

It was an absolute blast! Until next time.

3 Ways to Wear: Kristel Turtleneck Suspender Top

There are definitely more than 3 reasons why Kristel Turtleneck Suspender Top is the best-seller of the Kriss Soonik collections. Sure, it´s the combination of the soft material, the unique pattern, the sexy details. But now add all the multiple ways you can wear the top, and you get a combination for success.

day

A suspender top for the office? Of course! You don´t even have to be exceptionally brave because you can hide the details under a pencil skirt and no-one will ever know. To make the look more striking, you can reverse the top and wear the keyhole detail in the front.

EVENING

Want to wear trendy pink but are worried you´ll look like a 15-year old? Trust me, not going to happen when you wear it with the black Kristel Turtleneck Suspender Top. Just add a bit of sparkle and you´ll be fine.

weekend

Turtlenecks are a big hit this Autumn/Winter. But why have the boring version when you can spice things up? The suspender details are a cool touch to bring to your weekend denim look.

Tokyo Visual Diary. Part 1

Last Friday we hosted a Kriss Soonik Disco at Isetan – the largest department store in Japan. The very gorgeous Sachiko and myself had the privilege to DJ the funkiest tunes from the golden age of disco and spice them up with some cool modern tunes.

Guests including our clients, stylists and bloggers had the chance to browse the new AW15 collection that had just been launched in the Acute Grrrl concept store on the 2nd floor.

Due to Isetan’s very strict rules (basically, no drinks or food allowed), we continued our party at the legendary New Sazae where we danced the night away and disco tunes played until the early hours.

The pop up store will stay open until the 6th October – if you’re in Tokyo, be sure to visit us at Isetan Shinjuku 3rd floor and check out the new collection with some items exclusive to Japan.
