Bewildering! It looks like quite a few people wondered the same thing, with the photo getting retweeted over 13,000 times in Japan and receiving hundreds of replies: That looks like the one we use on my dog at home!

Domestic consumption continues to fall and Italy, stuck in its longest recession since World War Two, is a challenging place to run a business, but its fashion industry is unrivalled, said Toni Scervino, chief executive of fashion house Ermanno Scervino. "It's hard because there are so many taxes, so many problems, the logistics aren't there," Scervino told Reuters before his brand's show which featured its signature Swarovski crystal embellishments on denim and dresses.
