Pet Road Safety Collection by renowned fashion designer Matthew Adams Dolan

‘VIS – The Road Safety Collection’ features eight hi-vis couture pieces, including stylish reflective down jackets, vests, sweaters and bandanas, created to support the Live your pet life campaign; a project designed by advertising agency TBWANew Zealand to help from new zealand animals live happier, healthier lives longer.

Dolan says he was thrilled to create the collection on behalf of from new zealand dogs. “As a dog lover and owner of Maisie, I was thrilled to receive such an exciting brief. To save lives and be fashionable with it, I’ve had an amazing journey working with the team at Southern Cross for highlighting pet road safety issues and making products that fit so easily into everyday situations.

“While some owners will love the full couture look, others will appreciate the simplicity of a reflective bandana that can be worn no matter what type of leash or harness they use to walk their pup after dark. “To be safe, we just need our furbabies to be seen, but let’s make them look good too. Maybe our next step will be better road safety gear for humans!”

Anthony Mc PhailGM Southern Cross Pet Insurance says, “We’d much rather help prevent our beloved pets from needing care with top-notch protective gear, than having to deal with a painful injury. I’m thrilled to see How? ‘Or’ What New Zealand responds to the VIS Collection. The high-vis fashion collection helps highlight ways owners can ensure the well-being of their pets, including being careful when walking around at night.

“We wanted a fun way to show pet owners how important it is to keep our beloved puppies safe while on the go, especially as we move towards shorter days and a colder weather.”

“So we were thrilled when Matthew Adams Dolan agreed to design this range of high visibility clothing. Some very lucky and very safe pooches are sure to turn heads on their nighttime walks this winter.”
