Sensational Swim

Our swim collection has always been built on 2 ideas – black is the new black and reversibility. I am a devoted fan of black bikinis and therefore from the beginning, I knew our swim collection will be classic when it comes to colour. But of course with a twist. And the twist for our 10th anniversary is the nude cat pattern that can be shown off in various ways on different styles.


 

For this year’s swim collection we have brought back all the bestsellers and added some very special new additions. Say hello to Ilona Swimsuit and Meg & Riti Bikini Tops.


 

Ilona Swimsuit is the ultimate eyecatcher. Born out of playing with asymmetry, the result is feminine and bold. It hugs the body in all the right places and features familiar details like our golden suspender clip. A little bit of the logo fabric can be spotted on the shoulder making it not your average black swimsuit.


 

Riti Bikini Top is a classic triangle with the gold suspender details giving that extra edge. It’s reversible and practical, a must have for any Summer vacation. Keep it subtle wearing the black outside or turn it around and show off that playful cat pattern. Riti Bikini Top is fully adjustable making sure the fit is perfect.


 

Meg Bikini Top became alive after the Inge gown that was in our early collections. Meg features a hood that is as much of a fashion statement as it is a very practical detail. The hood will be there to cover you from that extra bit of sun. Meg Bikini Top features our Cat logo print lining and comes in a flattering v-neck cut.

10 years, 10 items. Wings Swimsuit

With the launch of this year’s beach collection, we have picked the Wings Swimsuit as the next Kriss Soonik signature in our “10 years, 10 items” feature.

Wings Swimsuit


 

The Wings Swimsuit was born for the Spring/Summer 2015 collection when our first swimwear range got launched. The wings were not a new concept for us as it had been gracing our Diana Wings Velour Wrap for a few years already. As with the wrap I didn’t want the lace wings to just be hidden at home, then the swimsuit was even more perfect to flaunt in front of everyone on the beach or at the pool.

Before I ended up with wings, I played with many shapes. But the wings just stood out from all the others. The French lace wings are made completely by hand in our studio in Tallinn. Our seamstress extraordinaire Ilona has become quite a master in sculpting them over the years.

But noteworthy is also the material the swimsuit is made of. Originating from Italy, it’s really strong, stretchy and tucks everything in nicely. It’s made with UV UPF 50+ for that extra sun protection.

Wings Swimsuit is the perfect Kriss Soonik piece. It’s classic yet cool, it celebrates the female form and delivers you the unexpected.

Swimsuit

Our bestsellers this summer are definitely our swimsuitsSplash! & Wings. Both are equally incredible and oh so cool for very different reasons. Splash! is a bit more rock-n-roll and the Wings swimsuit is all about that quiet elegance.


 

Splash!

The flattering cutouts on this one really steal the show. It comes with a removable belt, giving you more options to style it. It’s definitely a very practical statement piece!

Wings

Simple yet stunning! The French lace wings on the back make all the difference. They turn the plain black swimsuit into a luxurious and chic eye-catcher.

CURLING UP WITH A GOOD BOOK

The best way to relax and gather inspiration. Our current favourite is Shoe Dog By Phil Knight. It’s a fascinating read about the journey of a CEO. It’s easy to forget that even a company like Nike was once a start-up. The book offers valuable insight into the highs and lows of running a business. If fashion books are more your thing, Business of Fashion has just come out with their annual summer reading list

FESTIVAL FUN

It has become a summer tradition to visit couple of (music) festivals each year. The music, the friends, the atmosphere! And there’s also the exciting part of coming up with cool festival outfits! This time we’re all thrilled about the Citadel Festival in London.

Visual Diary: Mallorca

Spain is one of my favourite countries in the world, making Mallorca one of my favourite islands. I used to come here almost every Summer when I was growing up, so it holds a lot of memories. As a grown-up, funnily most of the same things are appealing as when I was a kid – sea, sun, big boats.
Here’s a little gallery I put together while on holiday there last week.

Jump in!

Our swimwear is back in stock this beach season!

The all black swim range is perfect for mixing and matching. Why black? Because I feel that black is also one of the coolest colours on the beach. It works from when you first get to the seaside feeling naked and scared, to when you have a nice shimmering tan and feel 100 times more confident. It´s safe yet sexy.

In addition to all the favourites, we have added a brand new Wings Swimsuit to the range. The chic sporty swimsuit comes in very limited quantities and is only available to our website customers.

4) Don´t forget your swimwear!
No, seriously. The thrill of finally getting to the beach might be so big that you forget the most important thing. Our classic swimwsuit in black and gold is great for the beach bar or for playing volleyball with your kids. We love an active lifestyle but never want to lose the touch of glamour.
