Kriss Soonik Caribbean Dreaming SS17
”Our SS17 campaign “Caribbean Dreaming” is all about the small joys in life.” – Kriss Soonik
The lush greenery and blue skies of the Caribbean are on everyone’s minds when work grinds away at the soul or when winter holds fast. Even when the season is right, most of us (especially here in the US) don’t have the time to jet off.
Designer Kriss Soonik has some helpful advice: “When you just don´t have the time for a vacation, you can always create your own sunshine. Take time off in small portions and enjoy these small fun moments in life. We always want more but sometimes we just have to make the most of what we already have.”
Kriss hopes her collection helps remind her customers that when you just don´t have the time for a vacation, “…you can always create your own sunshine.”
Style wise, the Kriss Soonik Caribbean Dreaming, was inspired by the designer’s grandmother, Maie.
“I remember her being always very glamorous. Even when she was sunbathing in the garden of our Summer cottage, she had a proper hairdo and purple lipstick on,” said Kriss. “It was the time when Estonia was still part of the Soviet Union and traveling abroad was impossible. You couldn’t just buy a ticket and fly to the Caribbean for a holiday, so you had no choice but to make the most of your backyard sunbathing sessions.”
The designer sent us a generous sampling of images from the Kriss Soonik Caribbean Dreaming collection. Take a browse and we hope you agree that this is a beautiful collection and welcome addition to anyone’s summer wardrobe.
