POPUP SHOP – BOUTIQUE FAIRS SINGAPORE

AND…. it’s here! Our second (and biggest ever!) Pop-Up Shop, held at Boutique Fairs Singapore. This time, it’s the gifting edition and consider your early Christmas shopping all done at this one-stop amazing fair. We’re not kidding you, when we first set foot on Boutique Fairs as a shopper ourselves earlier in March this year, we were surprisingly overwhelmed by the great variety of vendors, gorgeous curation of brands and merchandise and the very well put-together layout and vibe of the entire shopping bazaar.

CLASSIC STAPLES

The latest arrivals from AL&ALICIA Playlist is such a refreshing update to our classic staples in our wardrobe. Known for their simple aesthetic with added touches of masculine shapes and details, we are really excited to switch out the old with the new.

playlist02

Inspired by the new album from sister-brother duo – Angus & Julia Stone, this new collection hinges on simple, paired down and clean lines in a refined masculine tonal palette. The elegant monochrome colors are timeless and easy to wear anytime of the day, juxtaposed with bright lavenders, navy and soft beiges, we can add just that bit of playfulness in our outfits.

playlist02-1

Our favorites have got to be the classic reworked shirt staples and the everyday balloon work pants. It fits amazingly and flatters every body type (seriously!). Flare crop tops matches the trendy culotte silhouette and high-waisted shimmery shorts. We’ve picked out our current favorite accessories to go with our top selection from the collection. Have a look at the lookbook below, and more variations in-store, available now!

HELLO KNACK

KNACK-001

As one of our invited guest craft makers for The Little Block Party III, we’d like you to say hello to KNACK – a fun and playful accessories line using handmade clay, brass and other precious metals and stones. The pair of hands behind the label is Joy – who was also a part of our team and was known to have a razor sharp eye and a particular fondness for all things Swede. Read on as we talk design and Knack with Joy.

KNACK-002

What’s the idea behind Knack and how did the name come about? 
Knack started as an outlet for creative pursuits and self-expression. As someone who wears necklaces on a regular basis, I couldn’t find many necklaces that were uncomplicated, easy to wear everyday, and not mass-produced, so I decided to make them myself.

To me, “knack” sounds just like “neck”. Besides its meaning that ties to what making means to me, I also liked that there was a tone of playfulness in the name.

Could you give us more insight about the making process?
Other than the usual process where I condition, sculpt and bake the beads before fine-tuning the details and finishing, I also like to explore different methods in my process. It usually starts with being inspired by the things and people in my everyday life. Besides finding the perfect colours and trying out new forms, I often have to trial and error to find ways around existing methods to achieve the look I want.
In the most recent collection, that was inspired by my trip to Malmö back in March, it took me months to figure out how to do the speckled texture so sometimes it can get rather challenging along the way.

Are there special tools required to make and craft the clay pieces?
Actually I don’t use any special tools in my process – they are all things that can be easily found in my kitchen, like toothpicks, satay sticks, aluminium foil, office paper, etc. The fun part sometimes is realising how a commonly found item can be used for other purposes. The most special “tool” I own is probably my oven!

What are some of the materials used and what’s your personal favourite?
So far I have used a variety of materials for each collection, like brass and acrylic in addition to polymer clay, which can be very versatile. Wood is my personal favourite as it is honest, unassuming and adds a certain warmth to my designs.

There’s lots of fun and whimsy in what you make, how has your own personality shaped Knack? 
I am quite reserved as a person but I do have a funny, crazy side at times too, especially with my friends. I think that one of the important things in life is ease and happiness so I do like to add a dose of lightheartedness and charm in my designs.

What do you do when you’re not working on Knack? 
I love watching films in my free time, visiting museums and reading art and fashion magazines for constant inspiration from everywhere possible!

Who are your design heroes?
Arne Jacobsen, Ettore Sottsass and Tadao Ando.

Where can we see more of your works?
You can drop by the Little Man Block Party! Or shop online at our webstore, and follow us on Instagram (@knack.co) to see more, including future event updates.
