Featuring some of the most glamorous models we’ve ever laid eyes on.

Did you know that Alessandro Michele has two Boston terriers? The Gucci creative director’s pets are news to us, but we’re so pleased to hear of them.

Named Bosco and Orso, the dogs star in the house’s new collection. It makes sense – come Chinese New Year on February 16, we’ll be living in the Year of the Dog.

Based on illustrations by artist Unskilled Worker (her real name is Helen Downie), the collection includes men’s and women’s clothing, accessories and jewellery.

For those of us who don’t celebrate Chinese New Year, there’s still a lot to love, especially if you’ve got a soft spot for cute dogs.

There are Michele’s dogs, by the way, alongside their faces on a tote which also includes the designer’s lucky number.

The campaign was shot by it-girl photographer Petra Collins, and it features her dreamy, hazy signature aesthetic. If this is the direction fashion is heading in for 2018, we’re very happy about it.

Maybe a cavalier King Charles spaniel is more your speed.

Or perhaps a very silky Afghan hound? There truly is something for everyone.


The Chinese New Year collection from Gucci is available now. We’re particular fans of this men’s bomber jacket (Dhs13,600) and this pink wallet (Dhs2,300).

You can check it out online here, or in store at The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates (among others).

Happy shopping, people.
