If you're a big fan of classy dog clothing that looks edgy, but classic at the same time, you will love my new find: The Dog Head dog sweater from The Barking Zoo.
The Barking Zoo, located in the Chelsea area of New York City, is a wholesaler to many fine pet stores. It specializes in 100 percent wool and cotton dog sweaters in classic knitted styles like argyle, Fair Isle, cable, hounds tooth... some are with rolled collars, some shawl collars... but all very classic. Call it dog prep.
The Dog Head dog sweater, designed on a straight knitted pattern is totally modern, unisex, and understated. The Dog Head design, patterned after the face of a smooth coated Fox Terrier is nothing less than adorable. Yet the design is abstract enough that, unlike breed-specific clothing, the Dog Head manages to pull off the feat of looking more like a brand than a breed.
The Dog Head sweater is available in dog sizes 8 to 16, in wool and cotton knit, in many gorgeous coordinated color combinations. For more information, visit The Barking Zoo. For retail orders, call 212-620-6144.
Look for The Barking Zoo at PET FASHION WEEK New York City, at the Metropolitan Pavillion, Booth P148, August 22 -23, 2009.
That's the buzz for today!
