As the weather warms and we watch the flowers start to blossom, our thoughts turn to freshening up our wardrobes. We want lighter, brighter more fluid options to ease us into the new season. Especially since we will be spending more time outdoors enjoying the weather with our beloved dogs!
At FETCH, every season we cant wait to see what new merchandise will be shown by the top dog designers and how they interpreted some of the most sought after human fashion from the Spring Runways for our four legged friends. We are happy to say that the designers did not disappoint! Following are two Spring Trends that we loved for ourselves and could not resist at FETCH this season.
Embellished Denim – it is NOT always easy to interpret Denim into dog fashion. At times, it can feel dated, slightly heavy and stiff. But these two styles from one of our favorite designers, Dog in the Closet, felt anything but dated and heavy.
The Aubrey Dress is a fantastic combination of denim and sheer embellishment. Both big trends this season. The adjustable bodice is embellished with a custom hand-cut floral applique and the tulle skirt is adorned with delicate hand-cut, stiched floral appliques. It fits comfortably because it is easily adjustable and even has a d-ring on the base of the bodice to easily accommodate a leash. Fresh, easy and pretty!
The Lanna Harness Vest – Is embellished denim at its best! We fell in love with the embroidered denim jackets and jeans for women that we have seen show up in our favorite stores this season. The Lanna Harness Vest is embroidered with flowers and gorgeous leaf patterns. It is available in our retail boutique in two color combinations, Fuschia and Pink. The D-ring for leash attachment even has a pretty beaded charm that you can leave in place or attach to your dog’s collar for an instant update!
STRIPES – We have been noticing stripes everywhere! Vertical stripes, horizontal stripes, clean modern stripes, seaside stripes. Even stripes mixed with solids and prints. All of them are fun worn anywhere. Mix stripes with black and you are ready for the city, mix stripes with white and stroll the beach. Here are a few of our MADE IN THE USA favorites!
Love Thy Beast is a NYC based company that always makes it easy to make your dog look extra cool while comfortable. One of our favorites this season is the ultra-soft, bamboo knit fleece hoodie shown here in Navy with blush sleeves and contrast stripe trim. If you just want to add a hint of stripes to instantly refresh an outfit or just want a super fun accessory, try the Hamptons Classic bow tie collar attachment made exclusively for FETCH by Trax Ties, designed and handmade in Los Angeles, CA. And finally, never underestimate the power of the perfect striped t-shirt! We love the little front pocket on this modern, black & white stripe t-shirt, by Dog Threads, designed and made with love in Minneapolis, MN.
