“Honest and loyal, Dogs are the truest friends and most reliable partner.” – Chinese New Year

There’s no denying, 2017 was a great year for Gucci. The brand earned the enviable status as most searched and top-selling brand of the year. Now in 2018, they are making a statement by tapping into an ever popular muse: the dog.

Fierce tigers and embellished snakes are part of the Gucci brand ethos, and now for the year of the dog, the canine becomes the next animal in the Chinese zodiac to be given a focus by the Italian company.

The beautiful campaign for the year of the dog capsule collection was shot by photographer Petra Collins (read our interview with her talented sister, Anna, here) and the images are a dog and designer label lover’s dream.

From Corgis to Poodles, Pekingese to Cavaliers, there is basically a canine utopia happening and we want to live in it.

The collection was inspired by Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s own Boston Terriers, Bosco and Orso. The dogs are immortalized on just about everything from bags and wallets to jackets and jewelry.

With Valentine’s Day and the start of Chinese New Year both around the corner, there’s an occasion to snag an item as a gift for someone you love, someone who loves Gucci, or, let’s be honest, for yourself!

2018 is also a monumental year for Gucci as the brand has announced they will go fur-free in their production. Another win for animal lovers with an eye for designer fashion.
