The collaboration is comprised of understated basics like white leather shoes and clean canvas bags in mustard or navy. All of the pieces were inspired by BUDDY brand's love of dogs, and their mantra "Make Happy". A message the world at large really needs right now!
Maybe it's the minimal mood I've been in lately or the fact that seeing my sisters' snapchats have me missing my dog Stefan, but when these campaign images landed in my inbox I couldn't help but let out an "Awwww!".
Audible "Awwws" are real rare around here.
The images are from Whistles latest collab with Japanese brand Buddy. The collection consists of premium footwear and accessories which marry Japanese craftsmanship and contemporary British design in fun unisex styles.
The team at Whistles got in on the Dog-spiration by naming the bags after their fave four-legged friends and featuring them in the campaign.
The collection will be available online and in UK stores starting March 24th, 2016.
