Choupette by Karl Lagerfeld


Choupette by Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld's playful tribute to his beloved cat, in a lovely clothbound gift book

Choupette is the world's most famous and pampered cat: she has two maids, she receives manicures, and only eats at the table off Goyard and Louis Vuitton crockery. Her Instagram account is approaching an enviable 300,000 followers, and now she has her own brand-new book.

Choupette by Karl Lagerfeld is a selection of the iPhone photos that Lagerfeld took daily of his beloved pet and muse. Here we see Lagerfeld's adorable Birman cat in a variety of indulgent poses: perched on a pile of books, curled up in the bathroom sink, and (of course) admiring her reflection in the mirror. Lagerfeld personally chose and sequenced these photos, which reveal a tender, playful look into Choupette's precious world.

Karl Lagerfeld (1938–2019) was a fashion designer, photographer and publisher. During his photographic career Lagerfeld received the Lucky Strike Design Award from the Raymond Loewy Foundation, the cultural prize from the German Photographic Society and the ICP Trustees Award from the International Center of Photography. Steidl has published most of Lagerfeld's books, including A Portrait of Dorian Gray (2004), Room Service (2006), The Beauty of Violence (2010), The Little Black Jacket (2012), Villa Noailles, Hyères–Été 1995 (2015) and Cassina as Seen by Karl (2018).

New York Times: Style

Dana Thomas

The small hardback, bound in a morning blue linen that matches her eyes, is a collection of iPhone snaps by Mr. Lagerfeld of the fluffy feline at play and at rest. Mr. Lagerfeld designed and edited the book in 2018 to give to his friends as Christmas presents.

All Hail 'Choupette by Karl Lagerfeld'

All Hail 'Choupette by Karl Lagerfeld'

We can't get enough of Choupette by Karl Lagerfeld, Steidl's deluxe, clothbound edition of Karl Lagerfeld's daily devotional cat portraiture. If you love cats and/or fashion personalities, you will not be able to put this book down. One of the most influential designers of the last half-century, Lagerfeld, who died last year, took, chose and sequenced the photographs in this ultra-giftable volume himself. His epigraph reads, "You know, personally, I don't even think I'm that famous. Now, Choupette really is famous. She has become the most famous cat in the world. I even get propositioned by pet food companies and things like that, but it's out of the question. I'm commercial. She's not. She's spoiled to death. Obviously."
