His classic creations rule the catwalk, and thanks in part to some stylish shelter Spots Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2013 accessories collection makes a commanding presence in “The Dog Walk”– the designer’s new digital video which proves that trends may come and go, but compassion is always in fashion.
In celebration of Adopt-A-Dog Month, the style icon has become a role model by selecting adorable adoptables from the ASPCA to help show off the brand’s latest luxury items for humans and to model puppy apparel ranging from a dog raincoat to a classic Ralph Lauren polo, made just for pooches.
The couture-conscious canines to ‘put on the dog’ for the video include miniature dachshund Roxy, who stepped into stardom by stepping into a Ralph Lauren Italian leather dog carrier; Coco, a dachshund who cuddles with a model; and Lady, a 9-year-old Pit Bull mix who steals the spotlight in the film’s conclusion. All of the dogs seen in the video now have forever homes, with Today reporting that Lady has a permanent place in the heart and home of a foster family (and even a Bulldog boyfriend named Duke!) thanks to the ASPCA’s foster/hospice program.
While all of the canines in the video now have starring roles in the lives of pet parents, fashion-loving friends of Fidos can help other pets in need through purchases of merchandise in Ralph Lauren‘s Fall 2013 accessories collection. Through November 15, 2013, 10 percent of the purchase price of select accessories and tail-wagging attire seen in the film will be donated to the ASPCA.
