Here at WAH HQ we love a good puppy cuddle. With our beautiful babies Bear & Moose spending their days chilling out with us in the office, listening to cool tunes, licking the models faces and occasionally chewing a shoe or two, it goes without saying that we consider our pets our family. So when we stumbled upon a little puppy publication called FOUR&SONS we had to had to share it with you. Not only do they LOOOOVVVVE dogs just as much as we do (which is A LOT), but they match our passion for design, culture and creativity too. A world where puppies and culture collide? YES PLEASE!

Curated out of Melbourne, Four & Sons is the epic creation of designer Marta Roca. In constant amazement of the love, bond and relationship between dogs and humans, the publication aims to provide an artistic canine-centric vision of art, community, people and products. From ceramic dog tea cups, stylish gear for the modern mutt, to incredible and innovative editorials, both in print and online Four & Sons have created something really special.

Method:

Well this is as simple as put all the ingredients in together and stir. It isn’t brain surgery!
If you aren’t a sweet tooth, replace the Lemonade with Mineral Water for something a little more refreshing. Simple. Easy. Delicious.

Supporting local design is incredibly important to us and we always get a little bit excited when our creative and talented friends produce something special. We chatted to the gorgeous, down to earth and sun seeking babe Krystle Knight, designer and founder of Krystle Knight Jewellery about her latest collection of fine crystal jewels, her inspirations and love for the never ending summer. Vibrant, energetic and with a smile on her face, here is what she had say..

Congratulations on the success of Krystle Knight Jewellery! What inspired you to go out on our own and create this label?

Thank you, it has all really happened very organically, which is so amazing, it really does blow my mind daily!

After working in fashion wholesale for 7 years, the opportunity came up to start working on something for myself and I took it. It has all been a matter of perfect timing!

What is the ethos behind KKJ? What sets it apart from others out there?

KKJ’s aesthetic is simple, cool and effortless. I am continually inspired by simple styling that shows of the natural beauty of the crystals.

I work mainly with clear quartz crystals, which is definitely my favourite crystal. It is known to be the master healer of all crystals. It works on all areas of the body, awakening, amplifying and transmitting energy, as well as clarifying the thought processes. It is also perfect for removing negative energies & a powerful healing stone for any condition or state of mind.  A strong belief in this is what makes KKJ different.

You have worked with some very talented creatives within the industry. Tell us how important that has been to the exposure of Krystle Knight?

I have been so fortunate to collaborate with so many amazing creatives in this industry. What I love about it all, is that everyone is there to support one another and help each other with their brands exposure. It is so amazing to see and also to be involved in. We have a few different collaborations coming up and this is all apart of developing a creative culture and community.

Social media is redefining the way we see style and the way we create style, how has social media impacted your brand?

Social media is really incredible. It allows access to so many talented, creative people  from across the world and acts as a platform to connect with like minded people & brands. I have such great support on social media, it truly is amazing, it really has allowed KKJ to grow to where it is today.

The introduction of colour and neon hues in the new collection feels playful and innovative. What inspired you when creating this collection?

I always loved a pop of neon. I don’t go anywhere without my neon nail polish on.

Travelling to different tropical locations growing up, I always found myself coming home with a bunch of neon bracelets on my wrist.

I guess neon really is the epitome of Summer; so it made sense to be able to offer some affordable fun pieces & tie them back with our crystals. You will start to see more neon in our coming collections, stay tuned

Where do you seek inspiration from?

I am continually inspired by Summer (of course) and the elemental beauty of nature. When designing I want to show off the natural beauty of each crystal and transform this into simple, wearable, statement pieces.

We know you are a summer baby just like us. If you could chase the never ending summer where would you start?

My go to spot is always Bali! However, I am spicing things up this month and taking a quick European vacation.
