Cats: The Fashion Calendar, Not The Musical


Cats: adorable, right? Furry purring machines batting at balls of string, I can haz all your love and affection? Well, Miuccia Prada may have plastered her cat fancy all over yesterday’s Spring 2010 Miu Miu collection, but let’s look at the facts. As Alan Weisman notes in his book The World Without Us, centuries of domestication have done nothing to dim the housecat’s predatory instincts. Cats, writes Weisman, kill “not only for sustenance, but also seemingly for the sheer pleasure of it.” The human race could die out tomorrow and cats—cats!—would not only survive, but thrive. Presumably, they’d evolve into a new master species, farming mice in skyscrapers and keeping the few remaining dogs as slaves.

With all that in mind, it’s good to see that United Bamboo designers Miho Aoki and Thuy Pham are getting a head start on sucking up to our future feline overlords. Aoki and Pham created a kitty-size version of their new collection and shot the looks on actual cats. A calendar featuring the photos is due out later this year and will be available on the United Bamboo Web site. (Friends of Grace Coddington, take note.) We urge you to post one someplace prominent in your home, where you can look at it every day and contemplate the future. They can haz world domination? Comments, please.

    I am so sick and tired of all these *emo kids* that claim to be individual and misunderstood, yet they hang around in packs, all wearing the same black skinny jeans, and sporting the same black hair over one eye, who is with me.Just learn to love yourself, be confident with people, and face everything, even in the literal sense of the word. louis vuitton online shop
