Canine Couture

Pet-a-Porter?

These days, most designers are trying to find clever ways to cut back and make dollars stretch, but not Roberto Cavalli, who is launching a new line of luxury petwear complete with velour tracksuits, puffer jackets, and shearling jackets (that’s right, dogs wearing sheep). Is your mind blown yet? Well, imagine a patent leather passport wallet for the traveling canine, bedazzled bowls, and a bevy of other items that seem completely ludicrous given the current economic environment—and yet oddly captivating. Well, played, Roberto.
