Collier de Chien actually translates to “dog collar” in French. As strange as that moniker may seem, it is actually a tribute to the belt’s original design, which was in fact a dog collar. In 1923 , Hermes received a request to design a dollar collar for the client's dog and the Collier de Chien design was born. The custom-made Hermès dog collar created a sensation among other fashionable dog owners who requested a similar collar for their own pets. Soon after, couturière Marie Gerber requested the iconic collar be refashioned into a belt for women. In turn, the Hermes Collier de Chien belt was released in 1927.
