United Bamboo is a designer clothing company that makes expensive clothes for humans, and equally expensive clothes for cats. Like, you can buy a sequined cat evening gown for $68 or a cat parka (with animal fur on it!) for $98. If you want. If that’s your thing. They even make an annual cat calendar, featuring cats dressed up in hipster-style humanoid clothes. And now these same catsploitaters have come up with what they term Cat Tipis, but what everybody else would call Expensive Toy-sized Teepees for your cat. Says United Bamboo: “Cool in the summer and warm in the winter, tipis make the perfect all-season cat home.” (As does, you know, your house). If you so desire to buy a tiny superfluous home for your beloved furry friend, it’ll cost you an adorable $58.
Sometimes you’re like, “Fashion, do you ever want to be taken seriously?” And Fashion is all, “Guh, no. I need to be true to my self.” And then Fashion turns up with this monstrosity, a goddamn paper bag jacket, straight out of Mugatu’s “Derelicte” collection. So, so, terrible, and only $480.

Another year, another totally embarrassing United Bamboo Cat Calendar. We didn’t think they could top themselves, and yet, here we are, staring down Professor J. Catsworthy in his special United Bamboo tailored jacket. You can order the 2011 version of the calendar via their site — and we highly recommend you do. After all, what’s better than 12 full months of totally mortified cats in clothing? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
These models are fierce! We would love to wake up each day and have runway garb greet us as we check the date. Unfortunately, staring a high-fashion model in the face (and body) first thing in the AM would probably shoot our day to hell before it even got started. United Bamboo has managed to combine our morning craving for couture with an “awwwww” fix in their 2010 calendar. [Refinery29]
