Cat-print fashion: first Miu Miu, then Zara, now ASOS…

The Cat's Pyjamas

Didn’t manage to get your hands on Zara’s cat-print playsuit before it sold out? Miu Miu too expensive? Don’t worry, there’s no shortage of cat-print fashion available on the high street, and is the latest retailer to jump aboard this particular bandwagon, with their £40 cat print playsuit.

Tell us, though, what do you think of this influx of cat-themed merchandise? Do you welcome the opportunity to get your hands on a “trend” item at a fraction of the designer price, or does it just scream “fashion victim” to you? Will you be dressing as a cat lady this summer?

    Ridiculous. I am really finding this new trend of eccentric prints a bit exaggerated. I know fashion is always changing and switching to old trends. But you will find the very people who found these prints ridiculous 3-4 years ago, liking them and wearing them now because Zara or Miu Miu made them. I think these clothes are mostly made for fashion victims who would pay abnormal amount of money for these.
    I don’t find it that bad, however, even though I don’t like cats 😉

    “£40 cat print playsuit.”
    This whole phrase is wrong. Cat print is ridiculous. Playsuits are for toddlers in diapers. Bah humbug!

    Actually, the ASOS version was cute…until I found out it was a playsuit and not a dress.

    Here’s what I think.

    Before scrolling down or reading, I thought this would be a Dress of the Day.

    I sighed.

    Nitpicking: why does it need a bow? That much print could knock out a plinth of allergy sufferers. Why are the cats so weird and stout and short-tailed? Cats don’t usually look like that. The print blurs together and makes the eyes feel odd, so you don’t even realize there are cats there.
