Bergdorf Goodman is so excited about CeCe Cord’s new doggie duds designs that the store is giving her a window of her very own to show off her lifestyle collection for Doggies who Lunch. The collection, called "Travels with Tiger" and named after CeCe’s Yorkshire terrier Tiger, is a huge success, featuring sizes from petite, small, medium and even large in case you want to buy your boxer a bespoke sweater trimmed with chenille cherries. If the fit isn’t perfect, the store will alter whatever for your precious. They’ve done a lot of that already.
CeCe’s designs also include a doggie dinner table with two silver bowls encased in a teak box with crocodile handles, luxury beds for your beloveds, travel bags trimmed in croc, ostrich, lizard, and bridle leather. Then, there are the beautifully packaged doggie treats homemade by CeCe and her family. Tiger begins traveling in New York Oct. 29 when Bergdorf’s celebrates the collection at a cocktail party in the store. Then Tiger goes on to Wilkes Bashford and Stanley Korshak’s stores in Dallas, CeCe’s hometown, and later Palm Beach. And the "Travels with Tiger" hangtags attached to everything taken on Tiger’s trip read: "I’ve bought in Wapiti, dozed in Tahiti, visited pyramids in Giza, roamed the beach in Ibiza/Crowned princes adore me, maitre d’s bring treats for me, and mile after mile I only travel in style. Bon Voyage, Tiger."
