Karl Lagerfeld, the former creative director of Chanel, passed away on 19 February, leaving behind his beloved feline companion, Choupette Lagerfeld.

Fans had worried over how the cat would cope after his death. After all, he had deemed her his “heiress,” and was said to have handed some of his estimated US$300 million fortune to her. Aside from potentially becoming the world’s wealthiest cat, Choupette has two maids, an iPad, and flies via private jet.

About a month after the late fashion designer’s passing, Choupette’s Diary—the social media persona chronicling the life of the feline—has reflected on what it’s like without Lagerfeld, in addition to debuting an ‘RIP Daddy’ collection.

“Dear Dahhhlings,” the account writes on Instagram. “Following the recent loss of Daddy, I went into mourning. While this has been a heartbreaking time, you’ve flooded my DMs with love and support. Reading each message, I found my voice again, inspiring me to put my best paw forward with the commemorative ‘#RIPDaddy’ collection.”

The series, which is now available on www.choupettesdiary.shop, illustrates Lagerfeld as a Burmese cat, the same breed as Choupette. He is decked in his iconic sunglasses, collared shirt, and black tie, along with a veil quintessential of his cat.

The ‘RIP Daddy’ range entails t-shirts, hoodies, phone cases, mugs, and diaries that all come branded with the drawing.

Choupette’s Diary elaborates that proceeds from select items of the collection will be donated to the Helen Woodward Animal Center, which advocates pet adoption, as well as aims to educate humans to be compassionate for animals.

“I chose this private non-profit organization because of their 40-year commitment to people helping animals and animals helping people,” writes Choupette’s Instagram account. “Located on 12 acres in Rancho Santa Fe, California, their nationally recognized Center provides a variety of services that benefit the community through educational and therapeutic programs for people, and humane care and adoption for animals.”

“Together, we will persevere. I ask that all humans show their support by shopping the collection… Then, wear and socially share the ‘RIP Daddy’ collection, tagging moi and using the hashtag ‘#RIPDaddy.’”

The Choupette’s Diary social media accounts were created, and are still being managed, by digital marketing consultant Ashley Tschudin, who began envisioning the life of Lagerfeld’s cat in 2012 with the consent of his team.

“When I initially started the account, [Lagerfeld’s] team reached out via email to make sure I was going to do it in a positive light…” she told lifestyle site Making it in Manhattan in an interview last year. “I have read articles where Karl mentions the account, which is always very flattering.”
