Karl Lagerfeld once called his fluffy white cat Choupette a ‘famous beauty.’

The Choupette collection is filled with feline-inspired goods like a cat-shaped knit hat ($61.50), shopping tote ($465) and assorted phone accessories.

True to Lagerfeld’s style, there is also a pair of fingerless gloves on offer.

Forever Karl: Lagerfeld has previously called Choupette a 'famous beauty'

Choupette famously inspired the Twitter spoof named Choupette’s Diary that presently clocks in at over 33,700 followers. Lagerfeld also created a Choupette bag to as part of Chanel’s fall 2012 couture collection.

 

Lagerfeld once said that Choupette maintains two maids, one of which records her every move each day.

The cat has appeared in fashion spreads inside magazines like German Vogue and V. In 2012 Lagerfeld would frequently leak photos of her to the press, hiding in a Colette shopping bag or posing beside a vase of flowers.

However, the feline has taken a hiatus from public life as of late, making the Choupette collection feel a bit fresher than it would have, say, twelve months ago.

Looks so cheap and nasty (even though it will cost far more than its worth) . A 5 year old could draw pointy ears on anything but it would not be "designed" . Such pretentious tosh.
