Here’s one for all you cat lovers! Shu Uemura’s Holiday 2014 collection is centered around a cat… Karl Lagerfeld’s famous feline Choupette, to be exact!
Karl Lagerfeld is no stranger when it comes to working with Shu Uemura – in fact, the famed designer has been using Shu Uemura’s eyeshadows to color his collections for the past two decades. Here are some information in bite-sized pieces:
- Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld’s collection is named “Shupette”, after his pet cat, Choupette (french, pronounced as “shu-pette”)
- This is Karl’s second Holiday collection with Shu Uemura – the previous was in 2012 with a mascot he created called Mon Shu.
- Choupette belonged to a male model – Karl house-sat the cat, fell in love with it and simply refused to give it back
- The feline has her own instagram account and has over 40,000 followers as of blog entry
- The cat has its own iPad, 2 maids, and a book dedicated to it (coming soon)
