Not since Garfield has a cat been as famous as Karl Lagerfeld’s feline bestie, Choupette. The pampered pussy has graced the covers of fashion magazines such as Vogue and is reported to have raked in more than $4 million.
So, it makes total sense that the designer is now partnering with German toy maker Steiff to offer a $545 stuffed version in his kitty’s likeness. The blue-eyed Choupette plush toy comes with a mouse accessory, a stylish carrying case and a certificate of authenticity.
It is just the latest in merchandise inspired by the pampered pussy. Other items in the 42-piece lot include: a Choupette-themed fragrant candle (we are unsure if it smells like a litter box) for $315, a $365 tote bag and a $335 Choupette-emblazoned sweater (cat-hair not included.) For would-be marchers looking for a pink pussy hat with a little flair, Lagerfeld’s site offers a $69 Choupette version.
According to the Daily Mail, the limited- edition replica is available for pre-order now on the designer’s website. It’s due out in June, and is said to be the purrfect gift for anyone with an “attitude like a princess.”
