This past winter at Harrod’s Pet a Porter fashion show the press clammored to cover the “World’s most expensive dog collar” by British jewlery designer Stephen Webster – clocking in at around $1.2 Million (USD) and is one of the more tasteful attempt at a “World’s Most Expensive Collar”(photo 1).
Vivienne Westwood’s Dog clothing line debut was overshadowed by the “Expensive” hype – though in that spendy vein the couture coat she designed with UK jeweler Issa was no bargain basement offering either priced at $5000.00 (photo 2). The coat was offered for sale at Harrod’s immediately after the show and was purchased by an anonymous buyer. Instead of treating this as a one-off Westwood has continued with her commitment to her Vivienne Westwood dog wear and if currently offering a more realistically priced line of collars, leads and coats. With plaids making a come back in the US, these plaid designer dog coats(photo 3) will be one to watch in 2008!
