Kate Spade launched its casual clothing and accessories brand Kate Spade Saturday earlier this year, much to my wallet’s chagrin. The playful patterns and bright colors just speak to my soul, ya know? So, when I saw that they launched a pet accessories line recently with the same cheerful, modern aesthetic, I kinda lost it. In a good way.
I love everything from Dusen Dusen, but since this is a dog blog, let’s talk about the dog sweaters, shall we? They feature modern block prints and are handmade in Bolivia from 100% alpaca yarn. There are human versions of each design, so the pups and I could wear matching sweaters. I think they’d be into that.
Houndworthy is a brand-spanking-new online shop for fashion-forward dogs and their people, setting itself apart from countless other dog retailers by truly believing in and treating dog ownership as a lifestyle choice. This expanded view offers a sophisticated interpretation of what a lifestyle brand can be by providing a collection of thoughts, feelings, images, and ideas that ultimately prove what all dog owners know: life with dogs is inherently rewarding.
Inspired by San Francisco’s inclement weather, the doggy outfitters at Wildebeest have designed a new all-weather jacket to keep your four-legged companions dry and comfy!
I’m a little picky when it comes to T-shirts — the only ones I feel truly comfortable in are American Apparel cotton tees. So how did I miss that American Apparel has a full line of dog stuff? (We actually featured one of their tees back a couple years ago. Again, duh.) The American Apparel pet line features all your favorite AA hoodies and tees, but designed just for your pooch. In addition, they’ve got sweet denim beds and collars and leashes to complete the collection. Check it all out at American Apparel. (If nothing else, their adorable array of doggie models is sure to brighten your day.)
The following post is brought to you by House of Paw et Bebe. We’re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
House of Paw et Bebe is the first of its kind: a posh puppy and baby boutique — in one! Their brick-and-mortar store is located in NYC’s Upper East Side, but their impressively curated collection is also available to browse in their online shop (for those of us who can’t make it to the Big Apple). Of course, we couldn’t help but round up some of our favorite products from this one-of-a-kind concept shop — check ‘em out below!

It’s cold out there, y’all. Sometimes a pup needs a little extra protection from winter’s chill, and we here in the South know that nothing takes the edge off a frosty morning like a sherpa-lined wool coat — in plaid, of course. Billy Wolf Fine K9 Coatery‘s dog jackets are handmade in the USA from vintage, dead stock fabrics. They’re sophisticated and rootsy at the same time — designer Lyndsey Drago honed her skills at Ralph Lauren and Timberland — and their velcro closures make them easy to put on and remove. And if your pup is already warm enough but just needs to sport a bit of flair? Billy Wolf makes awesome bandanas, too. Check out the complete line at Billy Wolf.
