“Dog fashion & Designer Dog Clothes" – TOP 20+ BRANDS [2022 UPDATED]
“Dog fashion & Designer Dog Clothes" – perhaps the cutest madness ever!
Oh, how uneasy it is to catch up with the choppy fashion! And lucky are those who are genuinely into fashion and anticipate another change of seasons to put on a warm teddy bear coat a whole month earlier than others! While many others are too busy to focus on such things – why waste time, nerves and money for all these perishable trinkets? But what would sceptics say when told about existence of another fashion – based on its own rules and trends – the fashion for dogs!?
Madness? Well, maybe! But this madness is so cute and positive that people may forgive it practically for everything! You may dislike some fashionista dressed in clothes he personally thinks to be good. But can you remember when you were last displeased by a badger-dog in a jumpsuit or a Christmas sweater? No, never! Because it’s hard to imagine something as positive as this!
But let’s admit the truth – it was not so long ago when people laughed at the very idea of dogs’ clothes! Even raincoats created with a single practical purpose were met with smirks. But now it’s all different! It seems that a couple of centuries passed, not a decade! Today even the most talented designers of the world spend their time on dog fashion while others spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to make their pets look like Hollywood stars shining on red carpets.
Where does dog fashion come from?
But what are those laws followed by dog fashion? No hard to guess that it mainly follows the fashion of pets’ owners. Fashionistas often dress their pets the way they dress themselves thereby creating bright complete images for the two.
Dogs’ outfits today are based both on trends and common-sense. Everything you like about clothes of your favorite brands can be also seen in god fashion collections. The Canadian brand Maple Leash, for example, offers stylish and practical clothing for our four-legged friends. It’s where one can find hypoallergenic fabrics, hand-knitted sweaters for cold days, materials colored by natural dyes based on plants etc.
Okay, but which designers are already in?
Well, be ready to get surprised. Moncler, Adidas, Heron Preston, Ralph Lauren, Barbour, Temellini, Urban Outfitters, H&M, Moschino and many other trendsetters, which make clothing for humans, do the same for dogs too!
Out of care and love the Italy-based brand of Moncler makes posh down coats for winter entertainments, Moschino and H&M provides dogs with comfort through making bright hoodies, while Heron Preston is there to save them from rain with incredibly cool and stylish raincoats!
