It’s not only renowned designer – Karl Lagerfeld that holds a penchant for the limelight. Garnering and sharing much of his fame and attention is his beloved feline – Choupette. After inspiring a full-blown capsule collection , the furry cat is now set to star as a cuddly toy – thanks to the very opulent toy brand – Steiff. Following Lagerfeld’s tie -up with the marquee, the faux Choupette will be made available to in a limited edition of 2000 for interested buyers.
Being a social media star (with over 92,000 followers on Instagram), Choupette Lagerfeld sure makes a worthy muse for a plush toy. Well aware of his pet’s celebrity status, Lagerfeld stated – “Choupette is such a famous and beautiful cat that when this request came to me, I was not even surprised,”. Vouching for Steiff as the right choice for this kind of a collaboration, the celebrated designer further opined – “It’s the only company that has the required expertise to highlight the extreme and absolute refinement of this young princess.” Continue reading →

South Park has been on the air since 1997. That means that next year is the show’s 20th anniversary. Yet somehow they have managed to stay fresh, funny, and entertaining for all these years. To celebrate that little perpetually snow-covered Colorado town that’s now nearly two decades old, Burton has released a line of snowboarding apparel and gear inspired by the show and its characters.
While the stand-out items for the collection are certainly the spot-on replicas of the hats (three hats and one hood, if we’re mincing words) worn by Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman, there are also some other deeper cuts. For instance, they’ve included several Parkitect Snowboards, one of which featuring Towlie artwork, and a pocketed long-sleeve raglan with Mr. Hankey sitting in the pocket. They’ve even made character socks and fingerless leather mitts adorned with character patches, amongst other things. This killer cartoon-inspired gear runs the gamut of pricing between $25 and $500.

Prior to seeing these new adidas Stan Smith Nuudes, we would have told you there was almost no way to improve the iconic tennis shoe. We were wrong. By removing the traditional adidas three stripe perforations and the colored accents on the heel and tongue in favor of an embossed leather patch and a pop of that iconic green on the inside, adidas has created a ridiculously clean leather sneaker that pairs well with anything. Technically this is a women’s shoe, but the design and styling are absolutely unisex. If you don’t have feet larger than size 10 you just have to size up accordingly. $170
