News & Runway


Dogs might show up in the arms of celebs, but in the eyes of designers, it’s all about cats.

First, Miuccia Prada sent feline-inspired prints down the Spring ’10 runway.

Now? Cats modeling United Bamboo.


For 2010, the 11-year-old brand is putting out a calendar of its designs. Only instead of Du Juan and Ali Michael pouting at the camera, there are kitties purring at it.

Shot by Noah Sheldon and featuring replicas of United Bamboo’s Spring ’10 collection, the calendar shows felines in the label’s trademark cool, architectural designs. One wears a pleated, origami-inspired dress; another stretches out while wearing a cream blouse and navy skirt.

Up next? May we suggest a series of LolCats in Alexander Wang?
