Choupette the cat, the pet and muse of the late Karl Lagerfeld, continues to put her best paw forward.
Choupette’s Diary, the name for the famous cat’s social media presence, exclusively announced to PEOPLE that they are launching a charitable and commemorative collection called ‘RIP Daddy’ to honor Lagerfeld and the special relationship he had with Choupette.
“Following the loss of ‘Daddy’ Karl Lagerfeld on February 19, 2019, Choupette’s Diary went into mourning. While this has been a heartbreaking time, the Choupette’s Diary fans, followers, and fashion folk have filled her with love and support for which she will be eternally grateful,” Ashley Tschudin, the voice of Choupette and the cat’s social media manager, told PEOPLE. “With this love and support, it has given Choupette the strength to put her best paw forward and launch Choupettes Diary’s own commemorative ‘RIP Daddy’ collection.”
The collection includes hoodies, shirt, mugs, phone cases, and more. All the products feature illustrations of Choupette in mourning. The illustrations were designed by the Choupette’s Diary logo illustrator, Monica Smiley of eighty seventh st.‘

Choupette is focusing on being a “FURlanthropist” with this collection.
“This line is important to Choupette’s Diary because it is the brand’s opportunity to give back and help animals less fortunate than Choupette. With select purchases from the ‘RIP Daddy’ collection, a portion of proceeds will be donated to the Helen Woodward Animal Center; a private non-profit organization in California that has been committed to the philosophy of people helping animals and animals helping people for over 40 years,” Tschudin said.
