Italian designer Roberto Cavalli has always been an animal lover. Along with his wife he owns and adores two monkeys, seven parrots, three cats, one iguana and more horses than they care to count. They also have a Saint Bernard and two bichons frises. This adoration for pets inspired him to design his new pet collection Roberto Cavalli Pets. "Me and Roberto have always loved animals -- small sized dogs in particular -- [so] it came as a natural conclusion to bring a bit of our style to the canine universe," Eva said, via her publicist.
The luxury collection consists of t-shirts emblazoned with the designer's initials, bold velour tracksuits, silk printed shorts, and trendy puffer jackets. For jet-setting dogs, there are accessories such as the passport-wallet, collar and lead, and bag. "In my opinion, this is what dogs really need," Eva said. Accessories include quilted dog carriers and patent-leather collars and leashes. “Who doesn’t love dogs?” Eva said. “They’re reliable, faithful and caring. I could not imagine my house without them or our other animals. They’re true members of the family.”
