It’s a terrier’s world, we just live in it

Since nearly its inception, Las Vegas has hawked the dream of wealth, with Lady Luck as its conduit. But it’s all a mirage. The sole objective for both Las Vegas and today’s luxury brands is to take your money. It was only a matter of time before the two converged.

“Top dog: The jewel-studded Vivienne Westwood collar costs a small fortune”

British jeweller Stephen Webster, who created Madonna’s wedding ring, has even customised a £500,000 bespoke diamond and precious jewel collar ahead of next month’s Pet a Porter show.

The collection, showcasing an estimated £1.5 million worth of jewels, will be paraded by some of the country’s top mutt models on a 60 foot long, neon-lit catwalk at London’s Harrods.

The dogwear, including Webster’s collar, will be available to buy on the night and will then go on sale in the store’s specialist pet department.

Items for sale include a £2,500 Westwood couture ‘spring jacket’, made from white diamonds and small sapphires, a Ben de Lisi – Kate Winslet’s designer of choice – diamond-studded body warmer and an Issa ‘candy coat’.

Other luxury goods include a plastic jewelled tail decoration, a Juicy Couture fur paw warmer, a machine washable Aquascutum puffa jacket and Sexy Beast – a potent new scent created by a New York-based perfumer.


The show, which also raises money for the Retired Greyhound Trust, is just the latest example of the rise of pampered pooches.
