Behind the Design: Fishnet

Fishnet

Fishnet is definitely the boldest and most fashionable fabrics we’ve worked with over the years. It’s the edgier alternative to the delicate lace pieces we have in our bestselling classics collection.

What drew me to the fabric years ago was how tough yet elegant it looked. It’s a very sexy material but our feminine designs, have given it a fresh and fashionable twist. Made in France, the material is soft to touch and comfortable to wear.

We now have 4 colours of fishnet to choose from in our collections – Black, White, Nude and Navy. Don’t hold back when choosing the colours! It’s absolutely ok to mix the different shades. Having a navy bra and black knickers will immediately spice up your everyday lingerie look.

Hail, Nude!

No images can do justice to how gorgeous the colour is in real life. Getting the right Nude colour though was a very long process. We went back and forth with the lab dips with our manufacturers for months. It was never right – tiny bit light, too yellow, too dark etc

But I guess it was all worth the hassle because the final result is just beautiful. It has a slightly pinkish hue to complement different skin tones. It also matches well with other colours in outfits. And just generally it will brighten up your (Valentine’s) day. Guaranteed.

New stockist alert – Opening Ceremony

On my last trip to New York I had the pleasure to witness the first batch of our collections being launched in the coolest fashion boutique in the world – Opening Ceremony.

Founded in 2002 by two friends Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, Opening Ceremony has been flying high – they have become from a quiet street shop in downtown Manhattan to a worldwide sensation. Their unique fashion offering and the way they have experimented with their marketing is just pure creativity. I´m usually not into buying coffee table books but Opening Ceremony´s 10th anniversary book is one that every once in a while when I get stuck in a creative rut, I flick through to get my inspirational juices flowing.

Kriss Soonik x Opening Ceremony

I had the honour to meet their fantastic New York sales team for a breakfast clinic – talking about the brand, our inspirations and the journey so far. There were about 15 sales assistants and store managers asking very spot-on questions about the world of designer lingerie which was a real eye-opener even for myself. One of my favourite questions had to be “What do you love and hate most about luxury designer lingerie?” Answer: I love the creativity of designer lingerie and hate the traditional norms of luxury lingerie.

For Opening Ceremony the Alison Bra & Knickers (future classics, I´m sure) from our AW14 collection come in three colour-ways with a removable cheeky Marabou puff. The Electric Blue with white Marabou puff is an exclusive for Opening Ceremony! So go grab them from their New York boutique at 35 Howard Street.

Launch at Dover Street Wolf & Badger

We are thrilled to welcome the first fashion boutique to our ever increasing list of stockists – Wolf & Badger.

Located on the desirable Dover Street in London´s Mayfair, Wolf & Badger has become the place to spot new designers and unique pieces. Adjacent to cult stores Dover Street Market and Acne Studios, and parallel to Bond Street, this is “the” concept store to be in.

With an amazing selection of independent designers from clothing and jewellery to homeware, Kriss Soonik is the only women´s lingerie brand to grace the shelves.

“Kriss Soonik Loungerie is a tremendously exciting brand for us to stock at Wolf & Badger. It is increasingly difficult to find fashion forward, yet luxurious lingerie brands, however Kriss meets these criteria with ease. I am confident the collection will be well received by our customers, press and trade buyers.” says Henry Graham, Co-founder and Retail Director at Wolf & Badger.

It´s great to see that Kriss Soonik is fast becoming recognised as not only a lingerie but also a fashion label.

When in London, visit the shop on 32 Dover Street, W1S 4NE.
