In time for Christmas Mungo & Maud, the luxury clothier for cats and dogs, has created a new collection for Mulberry – especially for your four-legged friend. Behind Mungo & Maud are Michael and Nicola Sacher, who opened an eccentric concept store selling everything a stylish pet could desire in London’s Belgravia in 2005.
The Walking in the Rain collection is very British: in kingfisher blue or pheasant brown with golden buckles, man’s best friend is transformed into a VID, a Very Important Dog. Fitting for rainy British weather and Vienna’s slushy streets, there is also a rain coat in Mulberry check to match the collar and lead – which of course coordinates beautifully with the colours of the Mulberry Christmas collection for those of us who walk on just two legs. Taking your dog for walkies has never been so stylish.
Food for your VID
Leave your dog behind while you’re on holiday? How passé. Even hotels have recognized that dog owners are an important target group, and they are now offering them a special service. At the Park Hyatt Vienna, VID services include a dog bed, a food bowl and a welcome greeting in your room upon arrival. The concierge team will cater to any special gourmet requests and offer suggestions for diet plans and eventful routes for your dog walks. And if pup’s master or mistress should go out alone, simply call on the hotel’s very own dog sitter service.
