The House of Gucci has conquered the ready-to-wear and leather goods business, the beauty segment, the fine and high jewelelry sector, the horology market and even the home decor category. Its latest endeavour has it setting its sights on the pet accessories world.
Called the Gucci Pet Collection, the line is catered for cats and dogs and has everything your four-legged companions need to elevate those evening walks in the park or just for being at home. The brainchild of Alessandro Michele, the debut spans accessories such as leashes, waist bags, harnesses and collars finished with the likes of the GG monogram canvas or a geometric G print. A select number of items – like ceramic pet bowls, feeding mats and mini couches for lounging – are made-to-order, and decorated with the botanical Herbarium motif.
Details like the interlocking G logo and rocker studs run through the collection.
If your pet’s a frequent flyer, they’ll travel in comfort and style in a carrier (available in two sizes) decorated with the GG monogram and the house’s signature green and red Web stripe. Meanwhile, a transportable feeding bowl makes eating on-the-go a swanky affair. There are also adorable polo shirts, T-shirts and coats – punctuated with prints like strawberries and hearts and the recurring monogram and Web motifs.
As a reflection of Gucci’s sustainability ethos, the collection features items made with recycled polyester and cotton, as well as Demetra – an in-house material composed of animal-free raw components that are primarily from renewable and bio-based sources; a culmination of two years worth of research and Gucci’s desire to explore and innovate materials for the future.
Up the fine dining game with silver-toned brass pet bowl covers that mimic cloches you’d find at fancy restaurants.
Scroll on for a peak at some of the pieces from the collection – available online and in-stores now – for you to get your hands (or should we say, paws) on.
