Cats are cool and they’re our beloved furry friends so you can get that we’re excited about the latest feline inspired celebrity collaboration between New York DJ and model, Harley Viera-Newton’s cat, Marmite with Diane Von Furstenberg. Following in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld’s kitten Choupette posing seductively with Laetitia Casta. Diane von Furstenberg, well known for her glamourous and practical fashion has partnered up with the effortlessly stylish Harley to produced a bag and headphone set that is super cute and stylish just in time to make it to cat-loving fashionistas Christmas list.
The collection consists of a Feline Fetish Bag and Feline Headphone and an mP3 Play Button (a gift when you purchase the headphones!) with the bag featuring exquisite hand beaded crystals in a distinctly graphic design. The design is both young and playful with a touch of the bohemian glamour like Viera-Newton and classy and sophisticated like Von Furstenberg.
Viera-Newton, who DJ’d at the after party for the Diane von Furstenberg spring 2013 show, gushed about the process stating that there was no-one better to introduce her to the design process, and she would be right. Well known within the industry for her ability to inspire and mentor, Diane von Furstenberg, in 2012 was named the Most Powerful Women in Fashion by Forbes Magazine and has developed the DVF brand into the global empire it is today.
She is equally excited about the collaboration, saying that Viera-Newton’s cat Marmite is the perfect inspiration, the designs are so authentic and true to Viera – a quality she tries to instill within young designers.
One thing is for sure- this collaboration is the perfect addition to add some fun and festive style to your wardrobe. We can’t wait to get our claws on them!
The Feline Fetish Bag retails at HK$3700 and the Feline Headphone at HK$890.00
