You've already placed your preorders for Fashion Week goods, so don't leave your pet out of the primping party. If the presence of jacquard-swathed poodles at this year's Mulberry Spring show was any indication, high-end designers are still churning out exquisite accessories for the label-conscious pooch, feline, and dressage mount. Here's a sampling of their finest wares that will keep your pet feeling like more than just a diamond in the ruff.
Now here's a subject you never thought you'd hear about in conjunction with New York Fashion Week: cat litter. Let's face it: it's not the most stylish of subjects. And neither is cleaning out the litter box, though it's a necessary responsibility of being a pet parent. The good news is that — in addition to eco-fabulous cat litter options — there are a wealth of fashionable and functional litter box choices that go beyond the old pan-and-gravel standbys. So just in time for the kickoff of NYFW festivities, we thought we'd highlight our picks of the . . . er, litter.
If you want to take the preppy pattern to the max, there's also a complementary leather leash and collar for bonus coordination. I'm leaning towards the red tartan since it would make a subtly festive Christmas present, too, but see for yourself in the widget below.
If your pooch goes collarless like mine, consider just picking up a lead to match a solid navy harness instead. With whales as far as the eyes can see, check them out close up in the widget below!
However, I'm betting these two bags would likely stump most people on the street! Sure, upon closer inspection, I see the features I've mentioned since the latest offerings from Juicy Couture are solely intended for four-legged family. With the Rugby Stripe ($278) or Houndstooth ($298) patterns, they do come with a human price tag, too. Check out the sneaky sacks below!
Though it's hard for me to mentally wrap my head around brisk Autumn temps — 'cause it's hot hot hot now — there are a few items worthy of an earlier scoop before Summer's done. Personally, I think this sleeping bag is totally adorable for a chilly night under the stars . . . or one under the air conditioner.

Donning a doggone bowtie is a quick way to be fashionable (like for a wedding), but what about something a little more involved but a little less formal?Instead, make a pet stand out with this Juicy Tuxedo Tee ($40) in five sizes. For dogs that wear collars that would interfere or ones that hate anything on their necks period, this shirt doesn't restrict airways and is a sweetly dressed-down dress-up idea for the lil dogs (just like tie-appliqued tees are great for the lil kiddos). Its sewn on bow adds flair and cut out tails create a fake jacket back but still show off his wagging tail. Would your pups wag away at this concept?
