Holding a venerated status across civilizations as woman’s most loyal companion, the dog has been ornamented with decorative and functional garb since the Egyptian predynastic period. This practice was carried on to the time of King Henry VIII, wherein opulent collars were used to signify dogs’ ability in combat, and has morphed alongside the zeitgeist into the present age. Adapting to the demands of contemporary dog ownership, dog accessories have expanded beyond common collars, leashes, and tags to include dog jackets, hoodies, and travel bags. Offering protection from the elements, allergens, and harsh climates, luxury designers maintain the well-being of our furry companions as a priority in dog garment-production. Alongside their utilitarian functions, designer varieties of dog accessories admit our four-legged friends in the realms of streetwear and high fashion, enabling them to partake in the most relevant aesthetic leanings parallel to their owners. Bedecked in bold logo patterns and constructed with experimental textiles, luxury interpretations of dog accessories stand out against traditional varieties, bestowing our pups with the much-coveted ‘hype-dog’ status.
