Our Women: Kriss

“Our Women” is a new series where we introduce you all the coolest ladies who help Kriss Soonik do her magic. We start with our in-house team and of course the first person who we interview is Kriss Soonik herself!
.
Kriss is the heart of our brand. The one who designs and has always designed every collection. The one who’s determination has got us this far. Kriss always knew she wanted to do her own thing and a lingerie brand with a twist was a vision she had. After working for luxury lingerie brands Agent Provocateur and Madame V, and completing her MA at London College of Fashion, she launched her brand – Kriss Soonik.

Describe your typical day
For the past 2.5 years I have been a full-time mum to Karl and been working on a minimum program. When we are in London, a typical day starts around 8am, we´ll have breakfast and by 10am we are out of the house. We go for a long walk into the park, playground, sometimes meet friends. This is the time when I work on my phone, get the most urgent stuff done. Then we head back home for some lunch at 1pm and the little dude takes his daily nap. This is 1-1.5h of full on work for me. Lots of emails, calls with colleagues, maybe even some designing. Whatever needs to be done. Karl usually sleeps up to 3 hours but for the last 1.5h I need to stay with him. So sometimes I do end up taking a nap with him but most of the time I just continue to work on my mobile. When he wakes, we play, we go out and then around 7pm have dinner as a family. Then a bit more playing and when Karl goes to bed around 9.30pm, I squeeze in some more work. Then have a cup of tea and watch some Netflix with my husband. I end up going to bed at midnight.

How do you find balance in life? How do you spend your spare time?
I love walking, running and going to the nature. This is what keeps me sane. Weekends are for spending time with family and taking a trip outside the busy London buzz. Get some fresh air. As soon as I switch off, this is when I find answers to questions that have been nagging me. This is when I get my best inspiration and ideas.

What inspires you?
Travelling and streetstyle. Seeing women wear our designs all around the world. It has been quite challenging during Covid times. I loved my trips to Tokyo and New York and I can´t wait to get back there. But it has opened new ways how to look for inspiration around me. Living in vibrant London helps, of course 🙂

What’s the best thing about living in London?
Versatilty. The balance of quiet and busy. You can choose what you want.

Do you have any tips to those who want to start their own brand?
Do it! If you don´t do it, you ´ll never know. Be prepared to go through very rough times. But when you are in these rough times, remember this is when the most exciting ideas are born.

What is your personal favourite item from Kriss’ collections and why?
All time Classic Kristel Turtleneck Suspender Top, a new favourite Abstracat Jacket and of course the Kimono Gown.

Top 5 of 2020

Every year I pick the 5 most memorable moments of the year. Even though the year 2020 has been weird and surreal in so many ways, there are so many things to be grateful for. So here we go!

 

Geisha Valentine’s

Our Valentine´s day collaboration with Finnish chocolate brand Geisha was definitely one of my favourites of the year. The launch event of the campaign was the first and last major event in our Tallinn Studio Store this year. Thank god we really made the most of it! The campaign featuring our special mini-collection in pink velour and chocolate brown lace graced many shopping malls and TV channels prior to the special day. Thanks so much Fazer Estonia for choosing us for this campaign!

 


 

TFW fashion show

We presented our new AW20 collection at virtual Tallinn Fashion Week in October. Like all of you, I wasn´t able to attend the show, which made the situation quite strange. After all, it was my show but I as well watched it online. So I´d like to thank my amazing team – models Merilin, Ellu, Aurelia, make-up artist Erle and assistant Susanna. But most of all Johanna – without you I would have been nothing this year! Thanks for bringing the show alive better than I would have!


 

Diana Wings Wrap

The reason we survived this tricky year was the need for comforting comfy stuff and so our loungewear started flying off the virtual shelves.The hero product of the year was hands down our Diana Wings Wrap. Alongside our Getter Wings Wrap and Wings Hoody, the trio rocked our world and helped us through the roughest of times. They have been our best-selling products for awhile but this year was designed for them.


 

Abstracat Tulle

Bringing new fabrics to our collections is the most exciting and nerve-wrecking thing for me. This Autumn we introduced a new tulle to the collections called Abstracat. The pattern on the soft tulle looks like abstract splashes of velvet paint with our Cat logo and KS initials hidden in there. And then my ultimate favourite product became alive – Abstracat Jacket. The combination of velour and tulle in just the right quantities, wearing it with a pair of jeans and t-shirt is my go to look for a long time!

 


 

Our customers

Like so many other brands when lockdown hit I was not sure how we´ll survive. For a moment it really seemed like the end of the world. Maybe it’s stretching it a bit but it was definitely the end of the world as I knew it. No more easy travels to Tokyo or New York, my global world fell apart with a blink of an eye. I can´t explain how much I miss it! But when everything got really bad, our customer came to support us. I can´t explain how grateful I am for our community, the wonderful people who are willing to spend their hard-earned cash on our products. I can only promise to bring you even more exciting stuff in the year 2021 and make you smile with our designs.
Thank you! ❤️

Tallinn Fashion Week 2020

Last week Tallinn Fashion Week hosted our virtual AW20 fashion show “All dressed up and nowhere to go”. With a symbolic empty front row, we of course missed all the buzz and excitement of putting on a “real” fashion show but nevertheless the result was pretty amazing. Girls wrapped up in warm blankets strutting down the catwalk – yes, please! Thank you to our incredible team for all the hard work of pulling it together!

Below we have put together looks by theme and in the end you can watch the entire show.


 

Abstracat Tulle & Honey Gold Velvet

Our newly launched Abstracat Tulle dress, skirt and jacket alongside the Honey Gold Velvet items took center stage at the show. They were giving us serious Autumn vibes.


 

Black on Black

Nothing says Kriss Soonik better than sexy black pieces of lingerie and loungewear. Here we introduce our Knitted Jersey in Organic Cotton that will launch in December. Ultimate comfort mixed with cutout details – new Winter favourites.


 

Blue, baby!

Our SS20 Denim styles came out alongside our new Electric Blue velour pieces bringing a real sprark into the colour palette.


 

Leopard Lady

Launched this week, these Leopard Print Velour pieces are giving us real 70s vibes. Lounging at home in the tailored PJ set or if you´re lucky enough, going out in the brand new Iris cut dress, these pieces are as comfortable and funky as they can get.


 

Pink and Burgundy

Soon we´ll launch our velour colour of the season – Dusty Pink. Get ready, there will be limited items of Wings Hoodies and Gowns just in time for Christmas gifts. The Burgundy Glossy Jersey will have you turning heads at a party soon as well!
