Karl Lagerfeld being strange, as usual.
I’m going to preface this post by saying that I’ve never been much of a cat person. I’ve been allergic since day one, and I’m pretty sure there was a tramautic scratching incident in my childhood that I’ve willfully blocked from my memory. Lucky for me, the Karmaloop office is more of a dog zone (check out the @realmisskl instagram hashtag #missklpups for a bit of an idea). Some people take cigarette breaks, some people take coffee breaks, but me? I take puppy breaks. Anyhow, my love for man’s best friend has gotten a little complicated since the
not all that recent cat trend in fashion, propelled even further by Karl Lagerfeld’s pampered and adored Choupette (Did you see that Harper’s Bazaar spread?). The world has gone cat crazy and Miss KL has proven to be no exception. Our brands have been featuring plenty of kitty-cat inspired details and consequently brainwashing me into a pro-feline mindset. I’ve collected just a few of my favorites to prove my point:
1.) The Meow Sweater by UNIF 2.) Cat Eye Sunglasses by Alexander Wang 3.) The Kung Fu Cat iPhone Case by *Accessories Boutique 4.) The Paris Cat Shoulder by Joyrich 5.) The Black Cat Socks by Foot Traffic
Am I cheating on my beloved KL pups? Or have I just discovered a way to appreciate cats whilst avoiding the hives and claws? Either way, that UNIF Meow Sweater is mine.
