Nicki Minaj is going to like this idea.
Karl Lagerfeld's "Neo Coco" S/S 2013 collection was as classy as could be, and with all the elegance, there's always one item that begs for attention.
In this case, it was Unkle Karl's humongous Hula Hoop bag.
Never one to design something kitschy, Lagerfeld says he designed it for the beach, obvi.
"You need space for the beach towel. And then you can put it into the sand and hang things on it."
It also looks like the purrfect bag for Choupette!
Would U carry one of these things around???

OH. EM. GEE.
Dressing like this, his parent had to know he’d grow up to be the Karl Lagerfeld we worship today, right? Right?!
Elle France posted this gem of a picture onto their blog on Friday, and we nearly died.
The dark coat, the white collar — nothing's changed!
Now the real question is, how do we get more of Unkle Karl’s baby pics???

Anndddd we die.
i-D magazine is mad about Karl Lagerfeld's beautiful pussy, Choupette!
The fashionable feline got her very own profile in the mag's latest issue and it is quite possibly the most purrfect thing we've seen in a long time.
In addition to the 10 photo spread, Papa Karl even answered some questions about his beloved pussy.
Here's what Karl mewed:
On her name:
Her name is Choupette, Princess Choupette or Miss Choupette. She’s snow white with touches of caramel around the eyes, ears and on her endless boa-like feather tail.
On her pet hates:
Water and getting wet.
On what she does in her free time:
Sleeping, hiding, running and jumping like mad around the house. Chasing big fleas in her private garden and making it difficult for me work by jumping on the paper. She loves to destroy paper, that is what she loves to do the most and also driving her beloved maids (Francoise and Marjorie) crazy. With me she is sweet and calm.
What a life!
Wanna trade places!? Ha!

Most people use pastels in sketches, but not Karl Lagerfeld!
The designer has admittedly used Japanese brand Shu Uemura's makeup to tint and shade his drawings over the last 20 years, and now he's finally getting his own holiday collection aptly called Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura.
Unkle Karl even created a little character for them with red eyes named, Mon Shu. He explained

We're praying to the fashion-gods that this is true!
Fashion critic Cathy Horyn tweeted on Monday:
Which leads us to believe that Karl Lagerfeld's adorable kitten Choupette will be getting a Chanel bag named after her!
We're still waiting for the pretty kitty to pussyfoot around on her iPad and tweet a sneak peek of the purrfect purse!

Karl Lagerfeld has been immortalized in wax!
The designer's waxy figure was unveiled at St. Pauli Panopticon in Hamburg, Germany and we gotta say they did a wunderbar job. Maybe a little too wunderbar.
Oh well, we're sure the Chanel designer is honored!
