So Hello Kitty has a strong following of supporters but now the unseeming house cat (and yes, it has a mouth) has been gaining quite a number of fans too. So much so that we are seeing it inspired fashion trends.
So cat-inspired fashion may have been around for some time, well, on and off. However, of late, the feline trend has been taken to great heights, all thanks to Karl Lagerfeld who would be launching an accessories collection inspired by his famous feline Choupette next week, on 13th Nov to be exact. While Diane von Furstenberg has credited DJ Harley Viera Newton’s pampered kitty, Marmite, as the muse behind her latest capsule collection. I guess it is no surprise that this feline-inspired trend is here to stay, at least for awhile.
Here are some kitty outfits & accessories which I found to be interesting.
From gowns to casual skater dresses, we can see how cats have heavily influenced the fashion scene. The dress on the far right is from Topshop but I have spotted a similar one at H&M with only a few pieces left. I’d wanted to grab one but they ran out of my size.
Kitten Heels now have a while new meaning behind them. Don’t you find them adorable? My personal favorite would be the black polka dotted one with a red ribbon, there is just something about that bewildered kitty look that draws me. And no glamour puss outfit is completed without cat-inspired accessories to match. I’m loving the lace cat ears hairband from ASOS. And those kitty leather pants are such a unique find.
So move aside Hello Kitty because you are too mainstream.
