There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: Music & Cats.
Any collection that presents itself right off the bat with that kind of philosophy is bound to capture my attention, and designers Bianca Benitez and Rob Sinclair of Dear Creatures don't disappoint with a Autumn 2012 collection that includes cat-inspired blouses, dresses, and sweaters that "look to the future of fashion, with a nod to the past."
Of course the best way to present feline-centric chic is with a real life furry model, to which they called on their resident cat, Mouse. According to their Facebook page, Mouse ("the dearest creature of all"), was adopted last year when he was found as a stray kitten hanging around their office parking lot.
Check out the Dear Creatures website to learn more, and to shop the entire catty collection.
