Seeing Double: Andrea Cáceres’s Custom Sweaters For Pets and Their People
This sweater season, every day can be twin day with your dog.
Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
We’ve all seen those people matching with their pets. We know them. We love them. We envy them. Now, we are them! Illustrator and designer Andrea Cáceres just dropped a limited edition line of customizable dog and human sweater vests that we’re all too excited about.
The cozy knit sweaters start at $98 for humans and $88 for their pet counterparts (dogs and cats welcome). The sweaters feature three different patterns: checkerboard, art pop, and “ask me about my dog” lettering — all of which are knitted versions of the artist’s illustrations — and it doesn’t stop there. At checkout, you can add your pet’s instagram or submit their photograph to receive a one-of-a-kind knit in your pup’s likeness.
Do you have multiple pets you need to outfit? You won’t have to play favorites. You can include up to two pets on each sweater. After confirming your approval of the artwork, you can expect about a three-week wait to receive your sweater. It’ll give you and your pup something to look forward to, and you can rest assured that it was carefully crafted by hand.
The photo shoot for the interspecies clothing drop, which took place at NYC’s Washington Square Park, practically provides a tutorial for how to wear the quirky designs: a white undershirt for humans and a sleek leash for pups — minimalism at its finest.
Don’t forget to wear pants.
From mental health tips she learned from her dogs to the shame of running out of poop bags, her illustrations are playful and relatable.
Nothing beats a thoughtful gift (and nothing evokes oohs and awws like our beloved pets).
The Barkers’ lightweight, sustainable knit is always in season.
