Patricia Field - Fashion icon, lover of life, stylist to the infamous television show Sex in the City and the owner of the extraordinary PATRICIA FIELD boutique which will be closed its doors on February 28th. In it's place is a fabulous on line gallery of art inspired fashion pieces for purchase on the site going forward. Seen above, some of the unique pieces for sale: clockwise top left: Suzanne Malloik jacket, Scooter LaForge Jacket, Tom Tom vest, and Iris Bonner coat.) When I learned the store was to be sold, I was insistent that Amy Lombard join me to go shoot the two house dogs and get some insight into their lives with the magnanimous Patrica Field. Surprisingly for being Pat's kids, they are so NOT fashion hounds so let's hear why!
HOW OLD ARE THE GALS AND WHY DID YOU GET THEM?
Sultana and Putana are 13 years old. I bought them unexpectedly when I came across a Jeep parked in front of my Soho store with a sign in the open hatch back reading: "Poodle puppies for sale". I was in the middle of a move and did not have permanent living conditions and was thinking that I would wait until that time came to replace my sheep dog who had recently passed away. They were each irresistible, so I decided on the spot to take the two of them.
HAVE YOU ALWAYS HAD DOGS?
I have always had dogs. Mainly white poodles from the time that I was in my 20s.
DO THEY LIKE TO SHOP?
They like to shop at the pet store when I buy them their food and treats. Other than that, no, they have not shown much interest in other shopping, for example, wardrobe.
SEEMS AS IF THEY ARE NOT FASHION HOUNDS, IS THIS TRUE?
They are not fashion hounds, but they are definitely celebrity hounds. Their photos have been taken many times in the past.
WHAT KIND OF LEASHES DO THEY WEAR?
They wear generic leash and collar, nothing fancy.
WHAT’S THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS THING THEY HAVE SEEN HAPPEN AT THE STORE?
Nothing I can think of.
