Label Lust: Marc by Marc Jabobs New Dog-Themed Collection


Any guesses why we are particularly lustful for the latest installment of dog-themed apparel and accessories from designer Marc Jacobs? Yes folks, that is indeed the squishy mush of a Boston Terrier you see before you, inspired by Marc’s favourite BT Olive.

Now as someone who spends most of their dog-walking hours explaining that our dog Basil is not a French Bulldog when they point at him and say ‘ooh I love / want one of those dogs’ or ‘my friend has one of those’, we’re thrilled to see the American Gent take centre stage. Not that we don’t love a Frenchie, just to be clear. Now back to the collection …

An evolution from the tech range we featured last year (remember Shorty the Boston Terrier, Pickles the Bulldog, Katie Bunny and Juliet Zebra), this Autumn, Jacobs has honed in on the BT and applied to tech accessories, jewellery and clothing. Net-a-Porter seems to stock the most comprehensive range of the new Marc by Marc Jacobs dog-themed range but google a little deeper and you’ll also find hats, scarves, keyrings, t-shirts and other variations of the designs we’ve featured.

Give your i-ware a makeover with the Oliver silicone iPhone 5 cover pictured above and the Olive silicone iPad cover. The details: raised Boston Terrier design to inject a little fun into your everyday routine, sturdy for your techn protection and designed for a comfortable grip. Both designs feature a camera lens opening so you can be snap happy on the move. iPhone case £40, iPad cover £65.


Marc Jacobs gives the classic cameo design a playful update with a silhouette of Olive the Boston Terrier. Using a palette of black, cream and gold, the canine cameo is available as a necklace and ring. The details: a tiny Czech stone crystal eye for the extra wow factor! Olive painted gold-tone cameo necklace, £65. Olive resin, gold-tone and Czech stone cameo ring, £60.



Almost as a cosy as cuddling a real-life Boston, we love the Olive dog-intarsia cotton-blend sweatshirt, which pairs well with all manner of separates from skinny jeans to a leather skirt. Details: cotton blend with a relaxed fit, this is the priciest of the Olive range at £185.

In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, published earlier this week Marc Jacobs hinted that Bark Jacobs’ sweaters for dogs could be on the cards in the future. He says “If it works, great. If it doesn’t, we’ll drop it and do something different.” My, my Marc’s English Bull Terrier Neville Jacobs is going to be a very lucky dog muse!
