Here´s a quick chat with Liisa-Chrislin.
Have you ever got into a funny or awkward lingerie situation?

Wanted to perform “Lady Marmelade” at my school dance competition wearing sexy lingerie at the tender age of 13. Teachers cancelled our performance & we were super pissed off. Today I´m kind of happy they did 😅

Things that have happened in your life thanks to the support of friendship?
EVERYTHING! Friendship is more valuable than anything else in this world.

Manifestation for the future. Where would you like to be at this moment?
I like to keep things unpredictable so I´ll skip this manifestation & see where the ride takes me 🎢

A song to always dance along to?
Any afrobeat banger puts me in the mood.

 

 

Kriss’s Top 5 – February

Read: Biography of Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne has been a role model and an inspiration for me since I can remember, so I jumped at the chance to get an insider look at her life when her biography was published. As fate would have it, I happened to be on the same train with Vivienne when coming back from Salon de la Lingerie in Paris and could give my warmest regards to her in person. One more thing crossed off the bucket list!

Activity: Winter fun on the slopes

February is the height of winter and a great time to hit the slopes. After all, an active vacation is my favourite kind of vacation. I’m looking forward to a long weekend in the Alps to enjoy snowboarding, magnificent views over the mountains and a roaring fire in the evening.

Event: London Fashion Week, AW16

This LFW we were rooting for a fellow Estonian – Roberta Einer. She’s a talented upcoming womenswear designer who just presented her second collection at London Fashion Week. Her Dreams & Nightmares presentation got us inspired and completely in awe.

Theme: Romance

February is the month of romance (Valentines!) and beautiful lingerie gets the spotlight. The fact that Valentines is over for this year doesn’t mean that we’re done with romance. Surprise your significant other with some flowers/chocolate/cheeky knickers out of the blue and keep the flame burning 😉

Kriss Soonik at Kaubamaja

This week we opened a pop-up shop in Estonia’s most prestigious department store Kaubamaja. This comes at a perfect time just before Valentines Day.

For the opening we gathered the press and fashion bloggers for a nice afternoon with a bit of bubbly and an introduction to the collection by Kriss herself.
Our gorgeous model Adeline was lounging away on the bed reading “The Cat Who Walked By Herself” while the guests took a closer look at our signature French Lace styles.

The pop-up at Kaubamaja will stay open until 16th February, go and have a look if you’re in Tallinn!

Kriss’s Top 5 – February

Let´s be honest, February is quite a depressing. Here are the things that have kept me going this month. Even if it includes too much daydreaming…

Travel: Hawaii

Me and my husband had the chance of spending 3 weeks in sunny Hawaii for our honeymoon end of last year. Immediately after the trip I was happy to be back in Europe, but now I miss it and relive the memories every day. The good news is that I got a lot of inspiration for our next SS16 collection from the trip. The blue sea and skies definitely had an influence on the colours of the future collection. But even though I´ve started designing it already, there is still long time to go until we see the final results.

Exhibition: Guy Bourdin

I finally made it to the exhibition at London´s Somerset House. Even though his most active period was in the 70s, his work looks so fun and fresh even today. I was introduced to Bourdin´s work by our photographer Kristel when I first launched the brand 6 years ago. I was immediately drawn to his ability to create photos of products that disturb first, and then delight.

The exhibition is open until March. It´s well worth a visit.

Event: Valentine´s Day

I am really excited about the fact that it´s on Saturday this year. I´m hoping to really spend some quality time together with my husband and do something more than a regular dinner. I am open to surprises but whatever happens this Saturday, I am sure to wear our brand new Nude+Orange Alison Set – it´s cute, flirty, and perfect for this romantic, sporty or lazy day.

Read: Diane Von Furstenberg “The Woman I wanted to be”

What an inspiring woman! I read the book with less than a day, inhaling it in quicker than any other book before. Shaking between turning pages as I got inspiration and ideas for running my business. Determination, independence, confidence – strive for these and you´ll be successful. And a genius wrap dress won´t hurt as well…

Daydream: Spring

Can´t wait for it to arrive. I´m sure you have the same feeling…

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.
