Have you ever got into a funny or awkward lingerie situation?
As I tend to be in a hurry very often, it might happen that I wear my underwear inside out 🙃
What do you love about your body? Anything special you’re doing for it this year?
Like all, so have I insecurities about my body image. Lately, on a far more meaningful level than this paragraph can incorporate, I have come to realise that more important than the visual which your body represents, is the gratitude for it. Gratitude for being there for you every day and hopefully letting you live the best life. This year I promise to love my body even more!
Name a beauty product or trick you brought with you to the new year.
My all time favorite beauty product is the Estonian made Naude Naturals all vegan deo paste.
This Valentine’s day we present you a minicollection and campaign with my all time favourite Finnish chocolate brand Geisha.
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!
It´s time for our semi-annual super sale! Take the opportunity to get up to 50% off our past collections.
These pieces are unique and come in limited quantities.
Here are some of our favourite styles from the current sale.
It’s not very often that you’ll find our velour Wings on sale. The handcrafted lace wings make these sweatshirts one of a kind
and a cool must for your wardrobe.

Transparency is our thing. The Black Cat tulleSusan top and Susan body from our anniversary collection are really rare sale finds.
Add the Heart Tulle lingerie and you have the best of the see-through category covered.
2020 will bring a fresh new start to Kriss Soonik. Throughout 2019 we have been celebrating our 10th anniversary. I have now looked back at our first decade and highlighted 5 of my top moments. There were so many to choose from. Every year we reached at least a couple of milestones or fulfilled some of my dreams. But these are definitely the ultimate best moments for the Kriss Soonik brand.
In 2013 we got hit by the best and most unexpected news – Kriss Soonik was chosen to be one of the coolest brands in Britain. This was my big dream that I never thought could be possible. Being on the list gave us credibility on a completely new level and opened us doors all over the world.
Golden Needle 2014
Another big win came soon after we found out about being on the CoolBrands list – winning the most prestigious fashion award in Estonia – the Golden Needle (Kuldnõel). Being awarded Best Designer of the Year was an honour that I cherish every day.
Tallinn Studio Store Opening 2017
From the very beginning we have manufactured all our collections in my native country Estonia. I´m truly proud that we have been able to continue doing it over the years. But the turning point came when we moved our manufacturing in-house when we opened our first studio store in Tallinn. The incredible 200 sq meter space with high white ceilings is immaculate. Well worth a visit in the new year.
Tokyo La Foret Pop-up 2018
Japan was my dream market even before I started my label. I knew our style would be a great fit for the Japanese ladies. When we started selling our collections in Tokyo in 2013, it showed that my instinct had been right. We have had many pop-up shops and events over the years but for me the pop-up at the La Foret department store in Harajuku was the ultimate destination. A “wow, can it be real?” moment that I keep re-living over and over again. Thank you Yoshiko 🙂
Amostyle x Kriss Soonik collaboration 2019
Beginning of this year the collaboration with Amostyle by Triumph in Japan was launched. It was a project long in the making and when it finally hit the shops, the result was perfect. I loved every single style in this collection and it was so much fun doing it with with the entire Amostyle team from Honk Kong to Japan.
I would like to thank everyone who made the first 10 years unforgettable. A special thank you goes to our customers for being so kick-ass. Thank you so much and here´s to many more years! Rock on!
We have reached the last item in our “10 years, 10 items” series. Just in time for the holiday season we present you our best-selling Diana Wings Wrap.
Every year we bring the velour wrap back in new colours, next to the classic black. But this year we decided to relaunch two of our all time favourites – navy and grey – next to the very fresh bright yellow.
The Wrap came to life in 2010. The idea was to create a comfortable dressing gown with a hint of lace glamour. I also wanted to create something that didn’t need to be hidden in your home. Diana Wings Wrap is equally perfect for a Sunday brunch in a cafe. It’s so much more than just a dressing gown.
Diana Wings Wrap has kimono sleeves, a removable satin belt and is made from the cosiest, softest velour.The French lace wings are made completely by hand in our Tallinn studio. Our seamstress extraordinaire Ilona has become quite a master in sculpting them over the years.
It comes in one size, making it the perfect present. And even better, we’re offering complimentary monogramming on the sleeve.
Christmas is just around the corner and now´s the time to find special gifts for your loved ones. We have put together our favourites of the year. Hope you´ll find your favourite too!
If you´re looking for something extra special and romantic, then a set of lingerie is something to go with. Yes, finding the right size can be tricky but with our pieces in small, medium, large it´s easier to get it right.
Feeling comfy at home is one nice mission to have. Our loungewear is perfect for that! We have many new pieces in the collection. The special one to point out is the long-sleeved Getter Wings Wrap for all those future cozy evenings.
If by now you didn´t know that we also have clothing, not just lingerie and loungewear in our collections then this is the right time to explore it. We have some beautiful velvet dresses and suspender tops that will make a fab outfit for the New Year Eve´s party!
The party season is knocking on our door. It’s the time of the year, when you can go extra sparkly, extra shiny and just extra everything! We have put together 3 outfits that hopefully inspire your looks this festive season.
The mini dress
Just when you thought our Katwoman Print Mini Dress was only for warm Summer days… Surprise! Combined with black tights and a glitter turtleneck top this look is giving us real 60s party vibes. Add an on-trend headband and some hoops, and you’ll be a proper diva.
Showing off your bra is so 2020. When covered with lace and matched with velvet, it´s chic and beautiful. To spice up a classic lace look, we added a vintage hat and massive red earrings. Also adding a little bit of Christmas spirit will never hurt this strong look.
We now have only 2 iconic Kriss Soonik styles left to share with you in our “10 years, 10 items” series.
And the star of November is the ultimate Susan Lace Body.
I have never actually told the story how I got our French lace into our collections. I had a meeting at a very chic Parisian boutique, just next to Christian Louboutain. It was one of the first meetings I ever had. Still not sure where I got the courage from to go and show my collection, but there I was. The owner explored the items and told me, I like the body style but I will only buy it when you change the fabric, I don’t like this lace. I was shocked by her honesty but I was willing to do anything for her to buy. Deep down I
knew the lace was wrong.
So straight after our meeting I went to the fabric show and found us the lace fromJabouley that we’ve worked with since, and that has defined our collections. The shop never gave me an order. They closed soon after the meeting. But they helped me create a bestseller that has been hyped by so many women all over the world. So thank you!
I fondly remember designing the Susan bodysuit. The first version had a frilly bottom, being very playful and cute. But I wanted something more practical, our customers wanted something more practical. So I removed the frills and made the style reversible.
That was a game changer. Later we also added a top version that became a huge hit in Japan.
The Susan is chic, practical, sexy, versatile. I have worn it so many times over the years. In a formal setting with a pencil skirt or casual with jeans, t-shirt and trainers. It just works and if we are talking about office to evening looks, then Susan body is always your answer.
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.
We are still celebrating 10 years of Kriss Soonik. Three last festive months left and the next iconic style in our “10 years, 10 items” series is the one and only Kristel Turtleneck Suspender Top.
My absolute all-time favourite piece from our collections – the turtleneck version of our best-selling Kristel Suspender Top – just ticks all the right boxes.
Figure-enhancing fit, the soft Italian anti-pilling viscose next to your skin. 3/4 length sleeves and a turtleneck hide, while the suspender details bring a sexy element to the mix. The cutout on the back or in the front (Kristel is reversible) with a satin bow takes the glamour levels up. And the tiny satin bows on the garters seal the deal.
With some styles, the design never falls in place. You try and you try, and it just won´t work. But with the Kristel Turtleneck Suspender Top everything immediately fell in place. The beauty of the style is that it´s simple and elegant. I love how it´s not a revealing style, it´s extremely modest. But that´s what makes it mysterious and extra sexy.
It´s been our most sought-after style. The stories about how people find us are quite remarkable. After seeing a picture online of the top, not knowing who the designer is, some journeys have taken years. You just can´t walk into an H&M and buy a similar top. This is a true, original Kriss Soonik piece. One design that I´m most proud of.
