The fashion industry has always had a love affair with cats, from Grace Coddington to Karl Lagerfeld, these mysterious creatures have been the muses to fashion’s creatives for years. For fall, some of the season’s greatest designers have been inspired by the most exotic cats. Strutting down the catwalks of Gucci and Dries Van Noten amongst others, it’s clear to see that the Feline trend is here to stay and one you should fully embrace.

Dolce & Gabbana

We love this bold red dress (HK$18,500) by Dolce & Gabbana. Its long and fitted silhouette creates a timeless look while the cat print inspired by Stefano Gabbana’s Bengal cats gives it a quirky edge.

Loewe

From girl to woman, Loewe’s latest collection is sophisticated and structural. The cat necklace (HK$6,250) gives the collection a rebellious feel, one you’ll be able to implement in your wardrobe too.

Stella McCartney

The sporty meets fashion collection by Stella McCartney is entirely inspired by cats. This dress (HK$13, 470) in particular brings together contemporary design with funky edges.

Gucci

Gucci knows how to bring fun into fashion, especially through this sweater (HK$32,500). Inspired by marching bands, the sweater is adorned with a black panther that gives it a rock & roll feel.

No one does prints better than Dries Van Noten. Combining sophistication with the most beautiful prints, this blazer (US$1,135) and matching pants (US$750) will turn your office attire into a statement look.
