In collaboration with director Spike Jonze, Opening Ceremony created a limited edition collection of fashions inspired by his recently released film adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s treasured book, Where the Wild Things Are. The new movie also inspired a jewelry collection designed by Pamela Love for both men and women.
The Fall 2009/2010 capsule collection is all faux fur (of course) and surprisingly cute and wearable despite the fact that they are based on huge hairy creatures.
The clothing line features a full range of faux fur pieces for both men and women, evoking Max’s crew of wild friends including Carol, Judith, K.W., Douglas, Ira and Bull. The line even includes Max’s iconic one-piece playsuit - complete with furry-eared hood and wolf tail. To top it off, Pamela Love has also contributed to the project, creating silver and brass men’s and women’s jewelry inspired by the film’s iconography.
