Los Angeles—K.Bell, a leading legwear company, has something to purr about this season: a limited edition sock collection in collaboration with internet celebrity and feline sensation, Grumpy Cat. The collection recently launched at kbellsocks.com.
The Grumpy Cat assortment included styles for men, women and children in both knit in and sublimated print designs. (Retails: $9 pair to 12 pair.) Many of the styles in this limited production run combine knit in patterns with Grumpy’s image and memes printed on the socks.
“Born in the USA” is a stars and stripes pattern with Grumpy Cat printed at the top, “Camouflage Cat” is full print design combining Grumpy Cat’s face with a camo background, and “Go Away”, a knit in profile of Grumpy Cat are a few examples of the styles being offered. K. Bell has a strong business in fun novelty designs with cats being one of the top-selling categories
“K. Bell is thrilled to be partnering with Grumpy Cat for this latest sock collection,” says Karen Bell, founder of K. Bell. “We are a contemporary brand that aspires to stay on the pulse of pop culture so this partnership with Grumpy Cat only makes sense as she has global popularity and appeal.”
Grumpy Cat is a 2-time New York Times Best Selling author, she has starred in her own Lifetime Channel Christmas movie, “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever”—which drew more than 3 million viewers—and she was named The Most Influential Cat by MSNBC.
