High Fashion Purr-fection
Move over, Lagerfeld! Grace Coddington, creative director at Vogue, is flashing her cat lady street cred in her new venture with high fashion house Balenciaga. Coddington’s capsule collection features her drawings of her cat, Pumpkin, wearing Balenciaga’s Nicolas Ghesquière couture designs from the past ten years. This “Pumpkin” papier tote is launching at Fashion’s Night Out with 20% of proceeds going to benefit the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and comes in either ecru or, of course, pumpkin. The only problem is the heart-stopping price tag ($1,000!). If you share the kitty love but don’t have Anna Wintour’s shopping budget, you can check out Coddington’s charming collaboration with Didier Malige, The Catwalk Cats, for a more reasonable $32.
