Pomeranian EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Armani, the Mulberry SS11 Dog

"That's right, Armani, whisper in my ear..."
Butters: How long have you been modelling, is this your first Mulberry show?
Armani: Yes, this is my first show. I’m really excited – I was scouted by Mulberry when out and about in London on my lead!
 Butters: Oh the old park n' scout--I get that ALLLLL the time. 

Butters: What are your favourite shoes in the collection? Which ones would you most like to chew?
Armani: I think that the D-ring Wrap Booties in Oak Silky Snake would be the most tasty!
Butters: Oooh python for breakfast, soooo much chicer than kibble!! 

Butters: What is your favourite bag from this collection? Which one do you think would be the best for me to ride in?
Armani: Definitely the Tillie in Bengal Tiger. The haircalf is oh-so comfortable and very plush to ride in, and totally chic for the owner to carry.
Butters: I'll be sure to drop Mommy the hint. 

Butters: Which runway look is your favourite to be walked beside?
Armani: The Polly Push Lock Trench in Chestnut with the Piccadilly in Oak Silky Snake is elegant, classic and something I would always be very happy to walk beside, I could always hop in the Piccadilly if I get tired!

Butters: Enough about the humans, what is your own favourite look from the collection?
Armani: Mulberry’s Dog Macs are always cute and warm for when I’m out strutting the streets. This season it comes in a fabulous Trippy Tiger print, which makes me stand out from the other pooches and is so on trend for Spring Summer!
Butters: Omigod! There's nothing better than a fierce dog werking a bit of feline attitude. Those cats are really only good for one thing: lending their spots and stripes to our outerwear! 

Butters: How long did it take to do your fur and makeup?
Armani: Oh it took ages! Pat McGrath almost forgot to curl my eyelashes! Sam McKnight did an amazing job puffing up my fur –it’s a shame I didn’t get to wear the red wig!
Butters: You would have looked FAB as a ginger. 

Butters: Will we be seeing you in the next campaign?
Armani: Of course, I’d really love to be, but it is still to be confirmed.
Butters: Well if you don't, I sure will!!!

Butters: Are you jealous of my new Mulberry coat?
Armani: It looks fabulous on you darling! I’m really lucky to have a few Mulberry pieces in my own closet which I really treasure.
Butters: Armani, it's been an absolute pleasure, here, take my number but please, no doggy booty calls in the middle of the night (wink wink). 

Some shots of Armani on the DogWalk

Pom at LFW: Doggy Style-Mulberry's VIPs (Very-Important-Pets)

Yesterday Mulberry held their SS11 show at Claridges and invited a pack of London's premier doginistas to take in the show--all of us clad in our finest newest CURRENT season Mulberry sweaters and coats. Whilst I of course stole the spotlight in my black wool jacket complete with gold buttons, an catty little maltipoo decided to steal my look. As our mommies oohed and ahhed and tried to shoot us together in our matching coats, I let issue from my little lips a mighty snarl that warned the white fluffy creature to think twice before stealing my style again. The presumptuous pup then tried to stick her nose in MY Jaeger bag, which was too much for me to handle, so I attempted to nip her but Mommy reprimanded me. Meanwhile, as the paps fawned over Alexa Chung in the front row, we pups were too busy sniffing one another and checking who rocked which look best--seriously, fashion dogs can be such bitches. So here's a selection of the day's best dressed, obviously featuring an ample selection of prime shots of Mulberry's favorite mutt (just kidding, you know I'm purebred) me, myself and I, the Princess Pomeranian. Stay tuned for my EXCLUSIVE interview with Armani, the luscious Frenchie who walked the Mulberry dogwalk alongside the ginger models (click here to read Mommy's show review from NYFW). There may or may not have been a canine spark between us, I won't deny it, I have a weakness for older, French-speaking, model dogs. Especially ones called Armani. WOOOOOOOF!!!


"Ugg, can't believe you copied my outfit"
"Smooching dogwalk-side, why are pugs so easy?"
"Hello Mr. Man, I like my men big, burly n' Mulberry clad"
"Doggle in the front row"
"And Alexa Chung too"
"LOVE your charm collar!!"
"Finally, my turn on the DogWalk"
"Mommy's home!!!!!!!!"

Fashion Week Interlude

I know whilst Mommy has been in NYC scrambling away to cover fashion shows at NYFW, my dlog has fallen on radio silence. This is entirely her fault, always blame the human. I was so miffed at being unable to cross the Atlantic with her to visit my hometown and recreate my careless pre-doginista days rolling around in the dirt at Tompkins Square dog park that I just decided to dog it all to hell and kick up my paws in relaxation until the fash pack re-Trans-Atlantic-ified coming back to me. Like a terrier fetching a stick in the park, they always come back. But, thanks to this rabies-less island and its ridiculous and insular pet policies (just you wait, Great Britain, I'll show you a rabid fashionista), I had to stay put. So, in dogged protest, I abstained from dlogging til Mommy's return. But now she's back and made it up to me with a brand new bag and coat. Ok, to be fair, not from Mommy herself, but adoring PRs who just can't help but shower me with gifts (as they ought!). One item you'll be seeing loads of this fashion week season is my new Butters Bag, courtesy of Jaeger (proper post coming soon). The other is my spiffy new Mulberry coat which was sent over for me to sport to the show. Speaking of Mulberry, enough of my pommy excuses, let's get back to fashion dlogging!
