“Choupette is such a famous and beautiful cat that when this request came to me, I was not even surprised,” Lagerfeld said in a statement to the press. “Steiff is the perfect choice for this kind of collaboration. It’s the only company that has the required expertise to highlight the extreme and absolute refinement of this young princess.”

Once a pet of French male model Baptiste Giabiconi, Lagerfeld received Choupette as a gift around Christmas 2011 and never looked back. Indeed, there is no one more smitten with the cat than the owner himself, who famously told CNN in a statement, "There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals… I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat.”
