They say dogs tend to reflect the personality of their owners, and we believe it. That said, can you imagine the inner turmoil of stylish pooches everywhere as their owners get to dress the day in designer garb while poor Rover is reduced to strutting around in the same ole’ lackluster leash? Woof.
Thankfully, dog owner and Kane & Couture founder Amber Lee decided to do something about it. “I could not find a fashionable harness for my dog without some cheesy, cliché print,” she lamented. Armed with an idea and some sketches, Lee, the proud owner of a Shih Tzu/Maltese mix started her own line of stylish dog accessories, directly inspired by trends driving the ready-to-wear market.
AHAlife is selling two lines from Kane & Couture—both of which include a leather leash, harness and collar set—from the Urban Hound Collection, featuring a classic houndstooth design with goldtone hardware, and the City Pooch Collection, featuring a black and white snakeskin print with silver hardware.
But what’s fashion without function for pet owners? Lee’s products include brilliant details we love, like three rings on the leash for owners to attached keys or waste bags. “I was also focused on offering a safer harness than many on the market—one that would not pull on the trachea of the dog and would help sooth the strain of most collars and harnesses that cause wheezing,” said Lee.
Style-conscious canines, rejoice!
