United Bamboo Expands Its Fashion Cats Empire

Cat models and United Bamboo are back – and they're seeing beyond calendars this time.

After a year-long hiatus from the kitty business, fashion house United Bamboo is expanding, offering more feline-glorifying goods in addition to the classic calendar that first earned a following in 2009 with 12 snapshots of costume-clad cats (know as nameneko, a trend from United Bamboo designer Miho Aoki's native Japan).

Also up for grabs this year: magnets, posters, framed prints and an LED lightbox, all of which picture images of photogenic felines donning sized-down (but just as stylish) runway attire, designed by United Bamboo, Le Bac and Bamboo By. (All of the swag falls under a new spin-off brand, Catclub by United Bamboo.)

Prices range from $10 to $1,200 for the products, which are available on the brand's Kickstarter page.

Even more good news for fans of felines, fashion and fashionable felines: "There will be many more products in the future, and they will be all designed with serious intention and commitment to quality," according to the collection's Kickstarter.
