Yes, there is a welcome back to domestic animals, especially cats this season and we feel homey in a knitted Gucci cat motif wool sweater or glittery glamorous with a Hello Kitty version of Alessandro Michele’s mini evening cat bag for Gucci. We love to play further with this all-time favorite animal.

You either hate them or love them but you cannot avoid them, and some of us even become cat women like French actress Simone Signoret or Grace Coddington who stand for the women who love and live cats. Design-wise it’s easy to see that the outline of a cat’s head is a perfect design shape and always a cute option to put on shoes (Charlotte Olympia) or bags (Karl Lagerfeld).

They are also the ad campaign and look book superstars. A Persian cat in the latest Stella McCartney look book and also a little pet cat version playing with the new Coccinelle bags in their latest catalogue.

We know who started all this. Of course Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld’s Choupette is already a superstar with 79,000 followers on Instagram. Can you guess who will join her soon? New cat stars are already working on it, you will see…
