Throwback Thursday: Catwoman. Chanel Fall 2011 Campaign

Photo by Karl Lagerfeld

Cynthia:  Love this ad campaign for Chanel from 2011. The photo was taken by Chanel creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, and designed by the relentlessly chic former French Vogue editor-in-chief, Carine Roitfild.

I believe that 2011 may have been the year that the cat fashion trend kicked off. Because really, If Karl and Carine say it’s IN, then you know… it’s IN.

And, two years later, top designers are still getting into the cat trend. Check out Peter Som‘s subtle but electric cat fashion for Anthropologie’s Made In Kind collection.

Cynthia:  Hmmm… Marcy, do you think it matters if my Throwback Thursday post is only 2 years old instead of say… 20 or 200 years old?

Marcy:  Don’t you mean Throwup Thursday?

Cynthia:  Marcy! I do not.

Marcy:  Are you sure? I just visited behind the couch and there is evidence to the contrary.


*Carine Roitfeld is now the founder and creator of the relentlessly chic CR Fashion Book.

    I think it works for whatever year. That Made In Kind collection is so pretty. I am on a strictly sale budget due to the holidays and planning a trip with my hubby in March. But that shirt is amazing. LOVE!

      Oh fun! Just the two of you? So romantic. I love the shirt too but gosh it is soooo expensive. It would have to go on 2nd or 3rd cut before I would even consider it.
