Pumpkin, Grace Coddington’s calico Persian, is now the most famous and fashionable cat in the world. Coddington has lent her doodles to Balenciaga for a limited-edition bag and two scarves to be sold this Fashion’s Night Out. The “Pumpkin” Papier Tote ($1,000) features hand-drawn illustrations of Pumpkin wearing past Balenciaga collections. The bag comes in ecru or bright pumpkin canvas with black calfskin trim. Two printed “Pumpkin” scarves round out the collection, one in a classic silk twill and one in fringed wool and silk ($395 and $495). These will be a staple in Grace’s Halloween Costume for sure!
Balenciaga will be selling this capsule collection during Fashion’s Night Out in its Los Angeles and New York stores (Grace will personally be at the latter), and 20% of the proceeds will go toward the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons.
