Gucci is celebrating Chinese New Year next month with a capsule collection dedicated to the zodiac sign that symbolizes 2018: the dog. And while the collection's pieces themselves speak to a Year of the Dog theme, with canine faces splashed across the brand’s iconic logo on ready-to-wear pieces and jewelry, the true stars are the four-legged models that Gucci has cast.
Shot by Petra Collins, the images capture each sweet creature in the element that man’s and woman’s best friend deserves: bathed in pretty pink lighting, groomed, happy, essentially the full Gucci treatment. Honestly we can see a bit of ourselves in these models, who Gucci formally introduced us all to via Instagram. For instance, the cast includes a Maltese named Cotton who likes to be held, and a Brussels Griffon named Lois Lane whose weakness is cheese. Same, Lois.
Meet some of the new faces of Gucci ahead, then shop the collection on the brand's site come February 16.
