If you’re a cat-hating fashionista, these are hard times for you. First Charlotte Olympia sold a pair of cat-embroidered flats to basically everyone in the fashion industry, then Taylor Swift started toting around her cat, Olivia Benson, on her arm. Now, Karl Lagerfeld has emblazoned a new line of bags, clothes and accessories with a cartoon version of his beloved cat, Choupette, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
It was only a matter of time. Lagerfeld’s eponymous contemporary line has long taken cues from his own image and aesthetic legend to inform its playful designs, and fashion watchers have loved Choupette since she was a kitten. The collection will feature Choupette’s somewhat more aggressive alter-ego, Monster Choupette, in various states of feline rage. Not my favorite look, but if you like hissy-fit catwear, this line’s for you.
