Karl Lagerfeld Wants You To Buy A $545 Stuffed Version Of His Pet Cat
If you thought you loved your pet more than anyone else in the world, think again.
Karl Lagerfeld has again proved his devote love to his pet cat, Choupette, by immortalizing her in the form of an expensive plush toy.
A luxury stuffed version of Choupette— the “sacred Birman with immaculate fur”— can now become your next cuddle buddy. But she doesn’t come cheap. The feline retails for $545 at STYLEBOP and is a limited edition of 2,000.
Included with Choupette is a signed certificate (because she has her own autograph, duh) and a brief explanation of your new adopted friend, “Hi, I’m Choupette,” the certificate reads. “Without modesty, I am the most famous cat in the world. I must admit I was born under a lucky star – at a very young age, I met the man of my dreams: Karl Lagerfeld! It really was immediate and mutual ‘love at first sight!’”
Lagerfeld shared that he immediately jumped at the idea to create a plush version of his companion. “Choupette is such a famous and beautiful cat that when this request came to me, I was not even surprised,” he said in a statement. “Steiff is the perfect choice for this kind of collaboration. It’s the only company that has the required expertise to highlight the extreme and absolute refinement of this young princess.”
Choupette will be available from May 23.
