Karl Lagerfeld Collection for Paris Fashion Week Spring 2016
Choupette, Karl Lagerfeld’s hyper-spoiled and filthy rich Birman, has won the designer’s heart – and a growing amount of real estate on his signature collection.
See the cartoon cat strumming an electric guitar on a sweatshirt in a scuba fabric; as a robot on a T-shirt, sandals and tote bag; or in Miami mode, wearing a giant sunhat, her image speckled on bleached denim or a white cotton shirtdress. Coming in April is a capsule collection of beachwear built around the conceit of Choupette at the beach – someplace her owner would never venture – and with her likeness splashed on everything from swimsuits to towels.
The cat didn’t get her paws on the more formal parts of the collection, always based on a graphic, rock-tinged style. Consider sleek pantsuits and dresses with mesh inserted at the shoulders or around the ribcage; or bow blouses and Prince of Wales tailoring printed with lightning bolts.
