We swear that this Vice bondage puppy show isn’t as terrible as it sounds, though PETA would probably disagree. Kicking off New York Fashion Week, our favorite anything-goes culture mag took over The Westway (a hipster-approved former strip club) to commemorate the release of its fashion issue. As Annette Lamothe-Ramos, Vice‘s fashion editor noted, “No one hates sexy puppies.” Can’t say I disagree… recently my pup walked into the room wearing a thong for a necklace and it was Hilarious (yes, with a capital H). Our canine friends may very well be more sartorially experimental than we give them credit for. Led across a stage by a leather-clad escort, the dogs coolly paraded in their bondage wears to the pleasure of human onlookers. We’re guessing the furry friends were compensated in the form of Eskimo kisses, belly rubs, and Pup-eroni.
