Say goodbye to the year of the Rooster! The adorable puppies will soon take the centre stage, as designers are taking part in the celebration with dog motifs in various styles. Who doesn’t want a smart piece of Louis Vuitton accessory to start anew? Fashion labels have even created capsule collections to mark the occasion. See Moschino, who has launched the first limited edition with Pudgy, the famous cartoon dog and Betty Boop’s faithful friend while Emporio Armani has created a collection in the form of a French bulldog. Embroidered or printed, the dog is represented in an urban, playful graphic style.
Want a bolder style? Diesel shows snarling dog in its exclusive capsule collection dedicated to the smart rebels within Chinese community and its lovers all around the world, in a unique result where East meets West. Apart from dog’s motif, don’t forget their lovely footprints—be it hot stamped imprints featured by a.testoni and Diane von Furstenberg or the Tod’s Slip-ons sneakers decorated inside with the dog footprint. Paul Smith also plays subtle repeating print on a classic shirt to celebrate the occasion with simplicity.
