Japanese online retailer Felissimo impressed us last month with a cat-adorned summer kimono and now the company is back again with a new, more casual, Western-style garment that’s actually the first of its kind for the company. Created by Rinrin Yamano, a manga artist whose cute cat illustrations have appeared on a number of Felissimo-branded items in the past, the “Cat-attracting Jeans” have been designed to take feline playtime to a whole new level with a number of adorable details.
The cute little paw print and stitched face on the jeans pocket is just one of the item’s many interesting features.
The blue denim jeans can be worn outside or inside the home, and will be especially fun to wear when visiting one of Japan’s many cat cafes, as the details on the garment are designed to have kittens jumping all over you, making even the shyest of cats eager to play.
One of the central design features is the long, pleated side pocket on each leg, which includes a small loop from which to hang a long furry tail. The thick layers of material here mean that cats attracted by the swinging movement will be able to latch on to the pleated material or enjoy a good scratch without ripping your leg to shreds.
On the back of the jeans is another small loop where you can hang a tail or any other type of furry cat toy accessory. Walking out of a room will catch the attention of even the most nonchalant kitten, with your swinging tail enticing them to follow you wherever you go.
The jean hems also roll up with a clasp and tie as another style point to catch your discerning cat’s attention. Even if you’re just lazing about watching television, kitty can have the time of its life playing with all the design features on the bottom half of your body.
Yamano actually came up with the idea for the jeans as something she would love to wear while playing with her own cat. Her design sketch, showing all her well-planned ideas, has truly come to life in the real product, which is available for 7,004 yen via the Japanese online store or U.S.$64.47 via the international online store.
