Karl Lagerfeld Takes On Hello Kitty With His Choupette Collection

In case you didn't know, we're big cat lovers here. We may or may not have toiled over whether we're borderline obsessive, but then we look at Karl Largerfeld. He's basically the crazy cat lady only he's crazy cool. He has so much love for his snow white cat Choupette that he's designed a way for us all to love her.
Enter The Choupette catsule capsule collection. Hitting shelves November 12, Lagerfeld translated his muse's influence into a gorgeous tongue-in-cheek play on his signature black-and-white aesthetic. There are various cases for your iGagets, a knit cap with leather whiskers (complete with floppy cat ears), gloves, keychains, and a leather shopper to store the collection in. He's even designed a wool scarf to keep you warm. It's like having Choupette herself lounging on your shoulders. Sigh, if only.

Lagerfeld certainly knows the key to a cat girl's heart. Chanel is out catnip, and Choupette's line is just the sinful dessert. (WWD)
