The NYFW It Dog Carry Bag of 2015/16


Fresh from two New York Fashion Week photo shoots, this season’s It Bag and my fave is from Bark n Bag, and it also happens to be a great traveling companion. The Carrier One style dog carrier from the brand marries form and function beautifully. It’s both durable and elegant, and I loved it even more when I discovered it was cruelty-free!

Back in 2005, the Carrier One launched the Bark n Bag brand. It impressed so much, the bag won the Pet Age Pinnacle Award, which recognizes the most stand-out products of the year. In 2005, Bark n Bag was the first to create the bag’s unusual porthole design, which to me, is reminiscent of the ultra chic doctor’s bags of the 80’s.

Celebrity love…

With celebrities as diverse as Taylor Swift, Brooke Shields and Fredrik Eklund of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York as Bark n Bag fans, and Instagram dog stars like @ChloeKardoggian sporting one, don’t you think your pup should look as good as you when you travel? Or, maybe there’s that dog mom you know who could really freshen up her pup’s look. I’m just sayin’… 🙂

The Carrier One comes in great colors that are timeless. The sleek black is always in fashion. A rich brown is a great option if you often wear warmer tones. The red is an attention-getter and the plaid is a major Wow and a trending look this fall/winter. You choose!

Reasons to sport the Carrier One

  • It’s too cute not to
  • You’re finally planning that getaway, now that the kids are off to college
  • You want to dress to impress, taking your pup on errands, to doggy school or day care
  • You and Fifi or Fido are inseparable and traveling is in your future
  • You work in a stylish, dog friendly office and, well, refer back to reason #3.
  • You promised to treat yourself to that one great fall look, and it might as well be for the dog. I mean, our dogs get most of the good stuff, anyway, right?
