Friday Lingerie Lust: Kriss Soonik

During this summer’s lingerie show Curve in NYC I had the pleasure of meeting Kriss Soonik, the Estonia-born now London-based designer behind her namesake label.  In her collection of what might best be described as ‘loungerie’ styles with an underwear as outerwear feel, you see simple, luxe and sexy designs such as this Kristel Suspender Top and Airi Monarch Bodysuit. I’m already styling these in my mind with a pencil skirt and denim cut-offs.

Soonik’s collection for autumn winter 2012/13 is Icebreaker, full of nostalgia for the Titanic era but with a contemporary twist.  We see velour wraps and bloomers, lacy bodysuits and a satin bra and knickers set shown to us against the backdrop of icebreaker Suur Tõll in Tallinn, Estonia.  Kriss told me that the temperature during the shoot was minus 20 degrees, making me want to snap up the entire collection in sympathy for the poor model who somehow manages to look fabulous and glowing throughout.

One of my favourites from this collection is the ravishing Short Diana Monarch Wrap (images below).

I like Kriss’s use of details such as angel wings and bows.  Inspiration for these comes from Manga comics, superheroines and cult film figures.  All of which give her designs a little punch; an undeniably fierce contemporary edge.

You can find a lot of must haves at Kriss Soonik.  You can view and buy the collection at the Kriss Soonik online boutique; a further list of stockists is available here.
