Posting photos in Instagram has reached to another level these days. Photos with your pets circle around a number of hashtags in this pic-lover’s social media platform. Luckily, Dsquared2 partnered with luxury dog brand Poldo Dog Couture, on a new collection of jackets, coats, leather leashes, and other accessories perfect for making your doggie more adorable.
The collection, which was designed to fit dogs of all sizes, “from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to a majestic Weimaraner,” and made with a combination of refined materials that can handle a pup merged with Dsquared2’s traditional elements like the maple leaf or ICON print.
A red and black checkered lumberjack vest paired with denim and a wool collar feels like the perfect outfit to take your lil’ buddy leaf peeping in Vermont, or tone it down a bit with a military green, nylon version of the vest that feels more “city.” Another standout item to add your doggy’s designer wardrobe is the Caten knit sweater, a 100 percent wool sweater handmade in Italy, that’s refined, classic, and totally appropriate to wear to a cider tasting this October.
Dsquared2 also reinvented another fall staple, the denim jacket, for our jet-setting, four-legged friends. With a series of patches and a drawstring jersey hood, the D2 x Poldo Hooded Patch Denim Vest will make your critter the envy of the dog park. Or, just make it simple with the classic ICON hoodie. And if your dog hates wearing clothes, opt for the red and black bandana so they’re not left out of the action.
“We are so happy to partner with Poldo Dog Couture on this new project. Our pets are our family and what better way to extend our love, than with this fun but practical collection,” Dean and Dan Caten, founders of Dsquared2, said in a statement. “We live in a time when dressing your dogs is so very common, so taking our Dsquared2 aesthetic and applying it to doggy couture made perfect sense in alignment with all of our collections!”, the statement continued.
Founded by Toronto-born twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten, DSquared2’s distinctive blend of Canadian iconography and progressive Italian style has won consistent acclaim since its first runway outing in 1995, earning the moniker ‘Born in Canada, made in Italy’.
The label is known for collections that balance opposing themes with effortless aplomb – expect pieces infused with the design duo’s sharp sense of humour and trademark sophistication. Lived-in denim, printed T-shirts and cosy knitwear form the basis of the collection.
