Canine couture

I feel compelled to write about the extraordinary variety of outerwear for dogs out there on the streets. The snow and cold weather has really brought out the best in four-legged fashions. Riding in Louis Vuitton purses is fine for summer, hanging from the crook of their over-manicured owner’s arm, but in the winter, those dogs are going to be on the ground, pulling their own weight, and picking out their own clothes for once. In the past few weeks I have seen raingear, knitted sweaters, fleece hoodies, and what I strongly suspect was a blazer by Marc Jacobs. (The buttons were certainly big enough.)

It’s no surprise, however, that all the outfits were on very small dogs. Big – excuse me, “real” – sized dogs, like big/real-sized women, get no love from Lagerfeld, or anyone else.
