Chanel names bag after Karl Lagerfeld's cat, Choupette


Remember when our FG10 post on Karl Lagerfeld's cat Choupette?? Well.... 'New York Times' journalist Cathy Horyn tweeted that she had just seen the "Choupette bag" in Chanel's Paris studio yesterday.

There's nothing new about creating a handbag inspired by your muse - Mulberry do it every season, Herm├Ęs created one in honour of Grace Kelly and another for Jane Birkin - and now Chanel are following suit, except their muse is more feline than female style icon.

That's right, it seems Choupette - the fluffy white kitten belonging to Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld - has bagged herself a namesake in the form of a sure-to-be must-have bag.

New York Times journalist Cathy Horyn paid a visit to Chanel's Paris HQ yesterday and tweeted that she had just seen the "Choupette bag" and it was "knitted" and "soft".
