[C]ould 2018 see the return of the Paris Hilton-approved ‘designer pup’? If Gucci’s new dreamy dog-themed campaign – shot by Petra Collins – is anything to go by then the answer is a solid YES. To celebrate Chinese New Year (16th February, FYI) the fashion house has unveiled a dedicated collection of special items that will no doubt be a hit with canine lovers.
Gucci’s dog motifs “were inspired by a pillow that the artist Helen Downie, AKA Unskilled Worker, gave as a gift to Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele,” which featured an illustration of his two Boston terriers, Bosco and Orso. There are 63 items in total in the collection – comprising of coloured knitwear, denim shorts, pooch-embellished bags and bomber jackets. The collection is now available both in-store and on gucci.com.
