Yazbukey's clothes and accessories are, for humans, a wild world of Galliano-style statement pieces inspired by whimsical Jean de la Fontaine stories, Grimm's fairy tales, Gershwin music, Agatha Christie novels, Tim Burton movies and other camp theatrics. But the line's new clothing for "mini dogs" has even more bite, with its brightly-colored and printed bib-like ruffs tied around the neck with a ribbon where a leash would otherwise tug. Going beyond simple knitted body suits, the unisex range offers a chic alternative for furry friends of the fancier sort. What else would you expect from two eccentric Turkish sisters, Yaz and Emel Kurhan, who also happen to be Ottoman princesses and grandnieces of Egypt's late King Farouk? Now living and working in Paris, the duo studied styling at the famed Studio Bercot, where Emel continues to teach, before collectively interning at Christian Lacroix, Martin Margiela, Martine Sitbon, Givenchy and Jeremy Scott, even releasing a single with music man Michel Gaubert—just the sort of pedigree one needs to design canine couture.
