Ware of the Dog
New York City-based Ware of the Dog is a luxury dog accessory brand dedicated to representing a high level of design and craftsmanship. With signature safety orange accents, these hand-made harnesses, toys, chunky knits and playful jackets imbue a sense of humor and graphic sensibility. From their studio in Brooklyn, the company works exclusively with artists and craftsmen to create unique, one-of-a-kind items designed exclusively for their collections.
Often interpreting the trends of mainstream fashion into her designs, founder Jackie Rosenthal aims to create pieces that she herself would want to wear. With a background in luxury fashion (think Comme des Garçons, Lavin and Nina Ricci), Rosenthal employs supple European leathers, luxe knits and chic patterning in forming her niche of fashion-forward canine accessories.
