Karl Lagerfeld Names Handbag After His Cat Choupette

What Do Chanel's New Handbag and Karl Lagerfeld's Kitten Have in Common?



Talk about cat fancy: Karl Lagerfeld has reportedly named a Chanel handbag after his kitten Choupette.

Cathy Horyn tweeted yesterday that she "just saw the Choupette bag in the studio at Chanel. Knitted, soft. Name of Karl's cat." Not long after that tweet was sent, Lagerfeld staged his Fall 2012 Couture show for Chanel, during which many of the models carried soft, knitted handbags accented by metal chains. Were they the same ones that Horyn mentioned?

Choupette became an Internet sensation after Lagerfeld tweeted a picture (seen at left) of her playing with an iPad in May. Last month the designer said in an interview that Choupette refuses to eat on the ground and has two maids who keep a detailed diary of her daily activities that is now over 600 pages long. The parody Twitter account @ChoupettesDiary offers an imaginary accounting of the 9-month-old kitten's day-to-day life, but so far it has offered no comment on the Choupette bag.
