Grace Coddington's cat isn't about to let Choupette Lagerfeld hog all the feline fashion spotlight. Karl Lagerfeld's snow-colored princess has the fashion world wrapped around her paw, but there's a new four-legged style icon in town: Coddington's cat, Pumpkin.
New York magazine reports that the Vogue creative director, along with Nicolas Ghesquière, has designed a Pumpkin-inspired collection for Balenciaga. The line's scarves and bags are patterned with Coddington's drawings of her cat wearing famous Balenciaga styles.
The tote bag (pictured here) sells for $1,000 and comes in ecru or bright pumpkin canvas with a black calfskin trim. The silk twill scarf costs $395, or you could get the fringed wool and silk scarf for $495. But that blow to your wallet isn't all for naught. According to the magazine, the fashion house will donate 20 percent of the collection's proceeds to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons.
So watch out, Choupette. Pumpkin Coddington just had the best week in fashion.
