Meet the Zodiacats

A few years ago we launched our Katwoman Alphabet T-shirts. This project turned out to be hugely successful. We have all loved how cute, sexy and fun these characters created by illustrator Kati Stimmer really are, finding new nuances in the drawings every time we glimpse at them.

Ever since that launch we have been thinking what could be the next step in the semi-customized range? After all the main point of these shirts is that you can pick your initial which makes it personal and fun.
So please let me introduce you – Katwoman Zodiac T-shirts.

You can now pick your zodiac sign from our brand new Katwoman range. Printed on a comfy organic cotton T-shirt, these cute designs are waiting to be shown off. I love how the message of the illustrations is hidden. You can choose your sign but you can also wear a design just because you like it. We didn’t write Leo or Aries in big bold letters on purpose. That’s for you to explore.
Enjoy!

Valentines with Geisha

This Valentine’s day we present you a minicollection and campaign with my all time favourite Finnish chocolate brand Geisha.

Geisha girl


 

The collection is feminine, sweet & romantic, inspired by everlasting friendships. The Diana Heart Wrap and Heart Sweatshirt come in pink velour with chocolate trims and lace. There is a brand new lace top in town – Janne. The pink and chocolate tops come in very limited quantities.


 

The Valentine’s campaign is pink, the colour of Geisha, infused with Japanese cherry blossoms. It took a few days to build the floral skirt to perfection by our stylist extraordinaire Johanna. But it was worth the time as the result was pretty amazing. The campaign was produced by our usual partners in crime, the Kriss Soonik squad girls, who proved again that they rock! Thank you Sandra, Gerda, Getter, Kadri, Johanna, DDB & Geisha!


 

Loungewear Stars

This Autumn we have added some long-awaited styles to our velour family. We decided to introduce them in two of our all time best-selling velour colours – navy & grey. Next to a brand new and vibrant yellow.

First up is the long-sleeve version of our bestselling Diana Wings Wrap. The Getter Wings Wrap has been a sought-after style of our customers for years. For our 10th anniversary, we finally brought that idea alive. On top of having more coverage on the arms, the length of the wrap is slightly longer as well.


 

Belle Shorts & Dee Trousers are a match made in loungewear heaven with our Wings & Heart Sweatshirts. Perfect for those cold evenings to comfily snuggle up. And what’s even more fun you can mix and match different colours or just go all out in one matching shade.


 

Wings Hoodie has been a huge hit in Tokyo. Initially exclusive to Japan, we decided to add a beautiful navy version also to our website.
It’s on-trend and oh so comfy.

 

Striped Velvet

A new season has started and I´m still obsessed with velvet and its deep richness. For our AW19 collection, I found this beautiful mesh with velvet stripes from one of our existing suppliers at the London fabric show. I immediately knew that it would look incredible for our lingerie shapes.


 

In deep black, it´s a modern range that combines simplicity with elegance. The range includes a soft triangle bra, knickers and a bodysuit with suspender clips, and a new additionlong-sleeved bra top. All pieces you feel super comfortable in and just won’t stop wearing.


 

The new Eva Bra Top is most definitely highlight of the range. It is so great for layering. You can transition your favourite Summer dresses into Autumn by adding the top underneath. Or just rock it as a bra. The wide elastic underband offers enough support and the deep neckline creates the most flattering silhouette.

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.

Katwoman Print

 Beginning of the year, to start our 10th birthday celebrations we launched our signature cat logo tulle fabric. This marked the start of a special year with extra special releases. Now we are proud to introduce you our second limited edition fabric with an original Katwoman Print.


 

When the cat logo fabric was sheer and floaty then I wanted to add an opaque, non-transparent fabric to the mix. Something that would be ideal for Summer dresses and beach cover-ups. A fabric that would be ideal to mix and match with our lingerie inspired items.

The Katwoman print was born in collaboration with our illustrator extraordinaire Kati Stimmer. She is the creator of our Katwoman Alphabet that’s decorating our best-selling T-shirts. We wanted to take the character to another journey, including her in a subtle, a bit robotic way between the stripes and curves of the pattern.


 

The Katwoman pattern has been printed on the sustainable Tencel fabric in Portugal. For me it was important to find a fabric that’s easy to wear, easy to take care of and would be responsibly sourced.
Lyocell, better known as Tencel, is a fibre made from the wood pulp of trees that are grown and replaced on specialized tree farms. Unlike most cellulosic fabrics, Tencel is produced using recyclable, Earth-friendly solvents.
This eco fabric has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton so it’s an ideal addition to a Summer wardrobe.

So start preparing for the warmer days and check out our brand new Katwoman Print range here.


Kaubamaja Pop-Up

Our Valentine’s Pop-Up tradition continues. Just like the past few years, we have opened a little shop in shop at Kaubamaja Department store in Tallinn. This time however it’s extra special as we’re also celebrating the 10th anniversary of Kriss Soonik. The pop-up space is decorated with exclusive illustrations drawn by Kati Stimmer, forming a perfect backdrop to showcase the handpicked selection of products.  

You can find a range of lingerie, lounge and ready-to-wear items. Including the bestselling suspender tops and Heart and Wings Wraps. All perfect gifts for Valentine’s. But the highlight of the pop-up is undoubtedly our very own cat tulle fabric.

Don’t miss out! Kriss Soonik pop-up is open at Tallinna Kaubamaja until the 28th of Feb.

Tallinn Showroom Opening Party

Kriss Soonik Showroom

Yesterday we opened our first showroom in Tallinn. We had an amazing party with all our friends around us.

Morning didn’t start very promising – on the 26th October Estonia got its first snow! It was a real winter wonderland but luckily that doesn’t stop Estonians from having a really good time.

Sexy basketball boys served ice cold Moët & Chandon champagne. Cafe Ristikheina provided the tastiest and most beautiful cakes and canapes adorned with our cat logo and tiny black hearts. Our gorgeous DJ Laura Prits got us all dancing like there’s no tomorrow.

But I couldn’t have pulled it all off without the one and only Janne at Stiilikanal. She is the angel in events organisation heaven! Thank you!

Here’s a gallery from the very special evening. All pics by Kalev Lilleorg.
Thank you everyone who came and made it so memorable!


 

The showroom is now open at Paavli 5, Hoone 2. The entrance is from the courtyard.
I’ll be here every day 12-18.00 until Wednesday 1st November (except Sunday). After that it’s by appointment only.

New in: Pille Lace Top

Pille Top

We’re excited to introduce the newest member to our lace family – Pille Top. Made from beautiful lace from France, the top has a black velvet collar and an elasticated waist. This season it will come in classic black and gorgeous rose pink.


 

Pille Top

The black version has short puff sleeves. But it is the velvet peter pan collar that makes Pille so special. It`s classic and timeless yet trendy and chic. The perfect piece for the upcoming party season!


 

Pille Top

Pille in rose pink comes with long sleeves. The contrast between the stunning pale colour and the black details makes the top really stand out.
Wear it on its own or why not layer it underneath a dress and show off the sleeves and the collar.

How to Wear: Ilona Turtleneck Bra

Turtleneck Bra

Ilona Turtleneck Bra is another very special piece from the freshly launched AW17 collection. It’s the clever details that make this piece so lovable.


 

Turtleneck Bra

You might usually not associate a bra with fall wardrobe, but the turtleneck turns it into a very practical layering piece. The cutouts add a fashionable edge. And the fact Ilona is reversible gives you many many options on how to style it.


 

Turtleneck Bra

Layer it under a dress like Kriss or wear it beneath a simple T-Shirt.
Ilona also looks great paired with a blouse or a cosy jumper.
