The Chanel creative director recently appeared as the cover star of i-D magazine. The publication dedicated extra column inches to getting to know the designer’s pet cat Choupette, who is fast becoming an icon in her own right.
“Her name is Choupette, Princess Choupette or Miss Choupette,” Karl told i-D magazine. “She’s snow white with touches of caramel around the eyes, ears and on her endless boa-like feather tail.”
Karl is not fazed by his pet’s growing status among the fashion pack. As well as having a magazine photoshoot dedicated to her, Choupette has an ever growing following of fans on Twitter. The famous silver-haired designer spoke about his cat’s likes and loathes, as well as revealing more about his pampered feline’s two maids.
“In her free time Choupette enjoys sleeping, hiding, running and jumping like mad around the house. Chasing big fleas in her private garden and making it difficult for me work by jumping on the paper,” Karl continued. “She loves to destroy paper, that is what she loves to do the most and also driving her beloved maids (Francoise and Marjorie) crazy. With me she is sweet and calm.”
