The German fashion designer used Choupette, his Persian cat, as a muse for his holiday accessories collection. 

A gift from Chanel model Baptiste Giabiconi, Choupette has become a pretty important figure in the Chanel and Fendi designer's life. In fact, Choupette is so spoiled she even has her own maids, and a personal twitter account, and Lagerfeld is clearly besotted: "there is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals...I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat," he told CNN in June this year. 

Now in honour of Choupette, Lagerfeld has designed a new holiday capsule collection for his Karl Lagerfeld brand. Available from November 12, exclusively at Karl Lagerfeld stores, the line comprises a range of accessories (in the designer's signature black and white color palette), all with a féline touch.

Pieces include iPhone and iPad cases, scarves and bags as well as a key chain and fun Lagerfeld style fingerless gloves. Prices start at $65 for the wool cap with leather whiskers and cat's ears, and at the other end of the price scale you'll be able to pick up a leather bag (also with cat ears) for $489.

The Karl Lagerfeld brand has locations in Paris, Berlin, Munich, Amsterdam, Anwerp, Beijing, Shanghai.
