Hey millennials, do you remember Felix the Cat?

Cat calling

Text: Jolene Khor

Just about the only time it's a compliment to be called a cat lady

It doesn't seem so long ago, when we were waking up a couple hours shy from noon dressed in Thomas the Tank Engine pyjamas, simultaneously digging into our Honey Stars cereal and watching cartoons from our satellite television.

Most of us have long outgrown our sleepwear and the rituals we practiced in them, but that is precisely what's wonderful about nostalgia. They sneak up on us when we least suspect it, sending us a wave of warmth along with references we forgot we remembered from our favourite animated shorts — like Felix the Cat's magic bag of tricks and his cheeky cat-and-mouse game with The Professor.

One of Felix's biggest throwback champions is the creative mastermind at Scotch & Soda. Starring in the brand's fall/winter 2017 capsule collection, the indomitable kitty can be spotted as appliqué motifs on faded T-shirts and sweaters, embroidered artworks on souvenir jackets, hand-painted designs on leather, patchworks on stone-bleached denim and prints on old-school metal mugs. Made for the young and the young-at-hearts, the ready-to-wear pieces including accessories such as bandana and ribbed socks are available in women's, men's and children's sizing.

The Felix the Cat capsule collection is available at Scotch & Soda, located at B1-31/32 Ngee Ann City and #02-45/46 Paragon.
