A few years ago living in London, this a whimsical colorful account named @honeyidressedthepug popped up on Instagram showcasing the London life with a fashionable pug named Ari.
It didn't take long for us to find we shared the same taste in dog clothes from a fabulous brand in Japan. Attracted to twinning, pastel doors and exploring England, we fast fell in adoration for Ari & M. Below is one of my all-time favorite behind the scenes photos I took of M photographing her dear pug Ari with my Frenchie Elle in Kings Road. It captures the beginning of true creators finding community and creative inspiration on Instagram. The juxtaposition of the busy Sloane Ranger rushing by always makes me nostalgic for those days.
It was that day M told me New York called and they were moving. We moved back to Brooklyn a year later. Recently we were delighted to find their next move had made us close neighbors in Brooklyn. It seemed, unlike reports that color was disappearing from the world, our's was getting brighter again. We decided to bring that joy to you with a stylish and whimsical collaboration to enhance the bond with you and your fur babe out on adventures and cuddling up together at home.
Made in New York, Ari & M's denim leads with gold hardware come in with three different joyful messages:
1. Cool To Be Kind 2. Let's Go Places 3. Oh Happy Days
which have been paired it with a Whiskey & Woof 2.5 oz votive of your choice : No. 30 Festive (wassail, redcurrant & clove) or No. 60 Coquette (a lush purplish pink color that is a romantic blend of dark rose + fig) or our 2 ounce new dog spray.
The dog spray (2 ounces) is made with organic witch hazel, safe for dog fur or to freshen up their beds. Available in No. 20 Serenity Now (a lavender blend inspired by the lavender fields of London) or No. 40 Della (lemon verbena + wild vetiver. **Test on a small patch of fur first. 2-3 sprays should be more than enough to refresh your furbabe ready for any adventure. Both scents were selected due to calming effects. Please spray 6-8 inches away from your canine kid and avoid spraying near their eyes.
For those who love to collect, the final pairing is a set of all three leads with a votive and the dog spray.
