I used to think I was the craziest cat lover alive, but Karl Lagerfeld is giving me a serious run for my money. The Chanel designer, exalted for his stern, stubborn approach to fashion, diet, not getting massages, and basically everything else ever, has been a bit more subdued since he acquired the famously beautiful Choupette this past Christmas. As anyone who has ever loved a cat will understand, he’s head over heels for his Siamese lady, even going so far as to assure her well-being in his absence with two personal maids and an ongoing diary of her daily activities. (I also presume she can read, but only in French.) If Karl hasn’t broadcasted his affection sufficiently enough, rest assured — as reported by Cathy Horyn of the New York Times, the Choupette handbag is on the horizon. The longtime fashion critic tweeted live yesterday from Chanel’s Paris headquarters, describing the purse as “knitted” and “soft.” I don’t expect to be getting my paws on the bag (or the cat, for that matter) any time soon, but you know when that thing comes out in stores I will be petting it on the shelf. Prrrrr. Choupette. [Refinery29]
