In today's weird or wonderful news, Chanel's iconic designer Karl Lagerfeld and he's equally famous cat Choupette, have collaborated on a rather out-of-the-ordinary project. The white-hair feline, who's already Insta-famous with a whopping 98,000+ followers, is expanding he's empire into luxury toys. The designer has teamed up with German-based to company Steiff, to create a cuddly stuffed toy version of the plush pussy.

But in true Lagerfeld style, this isn't your usual cuddly bear at the end of the bed. The faux Choupette will be sold at Karl Lagerfeld stores and Steiff, and  is priced at a shy 499 Euros - that's $749 AUD.  The toy also comes with its own luxe accessories; including the cats's own case (with a certificate of authenticity - naturally), and a magnetic mouse.

"Choupette is such a famous and beautiful cat that when this request came to me, I was not even surprised," Lagerfeld explained.  "Steiff is the perfect choice for this kind of collaboration. It's the only company that has the required expertise to highlight the extreme and absolute refinement of this young princess."
