I love cats. Everything with cats can easily put me on fire!
What makes it worse is that, I have two cat daughters. Since cats start taking over the fashion industry since 2016, I am totally vulnerable to this trend as emotionally I fall so easily by linking those fashion cats with my daughters. For example, the moment I saw this inspiration of Miu Miu Spring Summer 2014 in the fashion show, immediately I associated it with my daughter Mui Mui- well, you can imagine then how willing I was to empty my pocket for the merchandises.
Doesn’t my Mui Mui look alike with this MiuMiu 2014 icon?
The Rising of cats in fashion
Cats perhaps start prominently to invade our wardrobe since Spring Summer 2016, however, they have always been featured in fashion designs and campaigns. The Watch & Jewelry brand Cartier being a good example- panther and leopard have always been the icons in the communication. I always joke that this handsome leopard below should be how my JuJu’s true father looks like for her inherited beautiful face.
There are also several famous cats in the fashion industry for their renowned owners. Choupette- Karl Lagerfeld’s cat- is for example the richest and the most posh one. She has her own Instagram (with 87K followers) and Twitter accounts, travels with private jet, being served by two maids, and even has her own biography “Choupette, the private life of a High Flying Fashion Cat.” She earned €3 millions in 2015, which is nearly as much as the famous model Cara Delevingne. She also has several jobs in advertising and was the icons for the limited makeup Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld. Now and then she is also the source of inspiration for clothing line of Chanel.
This cat-inspired trend continues in this Fall Winter. They are everywhere: from all kinds of accessories to T-Shirt and Knitwear.
Look for the strong personal statement in this Fall Winter? Let’s meow it out loud!
