An homage to creative director Hedi Slimane’s own beloved canine companion, Elvis, Celine launched a dog and saddlery collection earlier this year (it was revealed in a Slimane-shot campaign titled ‘Portrait of a Celine Dog’). True to the French designer’s unerring vision of luxury, the various accessories display the house’s master of leatherwork and craft – from studded dog leashes and collars to monogrammed feeding bowls (there is even a Triomphe monogram rubber toy, a truly luxurious take on the ‘chew toy’). Those with a preference for cats needn’t feel left out, though, new versions of Celine’s ‘Voyage’ carryall come printed with either ‘Cat’ or ‘Dog’ in Celine’s signature sans-serif typography.

In June 2022, Gucci revealed its inaugural pet collection – an extension of the house’s lifestyle line, launched in 2021. Drawing inspiration from Gucci Lifestyle’s ‘narrative of surprise and delight’, which is meant to evoke opening a ‘cabinet of curiosities’, the various objects for cats and dogs reflect the house’s romantic motifs and codes – from a Gucci canvas monogram feeding bowl (replete with strawberry-handle metal cloche) to an array of colourful apparel reflective of items in Gucci’s collections. Collars, harnesses and carriers are available alongside (in classic leather or bold monogram-inspired prints), as well as pet beds, reminiscent of vintage claw-foot sofas.

Since taking over her family’s eponymous leather goods house in the late 1970s, nylon has been central to Miuccia Prada’s reinvention of Prada – ‘the best-known symbol of her subversive approach to refinement’, says the house. The fabric is utilised across an ever-expanding – and increasingly ubiquitous – collection of pet accessories, from padded collars and carry cases to leashes with nylon compartments for treats or bags. Leather accessories sit alongside, while a series of bejewelled, crystal-studded pieces are a playful proposition for pet occasion wear.

Hermès brings its historic association with leatherwork to its ‘canine collection’, which draws inspiration from equestrian wear – a nod to the house’s roots in saddlery. As such, bridle leather and saddle-stitch motifs feature across the various leads, collars and harnesses, while a vivid use of colour provides a link to the house’s mens- and womenswear collections. Alongside, carry bags, frisbees, and wooden dog beds, as well as dog grooming products – including shampoo and conditioner with a ‘unique olfactory signature’ created by perfumer Christine Nagel.

Acne Studios brings its irreverent ‘Face’ motif – an emoji-style symbol with a deadpan expression – to a new dog leash, one of the Swedish brand’s first forays into pet accessories (dogs, however, have featured previously in Acne Studios’ collections and campaigns, including for A/W 2020, when staff members were photographed alongside their dogs). Featuring a sleek patent black strap and available in both small or large sizes, the leash is finished with a metal Face motif logo plaque. It is by no means exclusively for dogs – on the brand’s website, the smaller size is modelled by a black and white cat.

Fendi’s double-F monogram is one of fashion’s most recognisable symbols; a pet collection from the Italian house, first launched in April 2021, sees it adorn a series of luxurious carry bags, leashes and collars in classic shades of tobacco and brown (the logo also appears on as a charm-like nameplate across the collection). A water-repellent nylon dog coat – also in the double-F monogram – is a necessary accessory for drizzly winter days, while a ‘dog necklace’ offers a glamorous riff on the classic collar, complete with gobstopper white crystals.
