William Wegman, the photographer best known for his surreal images of Weimaraners, has partnered with Acne for a seven-photo "portfolio" starring the elegant pooches. Modeling shoes, hats, and printed suits from the Spring 2013 and Resort 2013 collections, the dogs pose on pedestals and white boxes, their expressionless faces leaving plenty of room for interpretation by the viewer. "I'm a big fan of William Wegman's work, its beauty, witty humor, and intelligence, but also what it says about identity and culture," Acne creative director Jonny Johansson explains of the collaboration. "I always thought it would be interesting to work on a project together. The outcome is beyond all expectation."

From a cat taking the wheel to a dog embracing the luxury of a taxi, sit back, relax, and cruise through to see some of the cutest car-conquering critters (warning: you'll most likely have to sit in the backseat).
