Pamela Love’s “Where the Wild Things Are” collection for Opening Ceremony
What child within us can resist wild things? Fantastical illustrator Maurice Sendak gave us a glorious classic in his book, Where the Wild Things Are, where little Max turns into a king in a wild dream kingdom when the lights go out. Now, director Spike Jonze will debut a movie version of this book (October 16th). The fashion tribes suddenly want to tap into their inner beasts and get a bit…silly. After all, once we stop a moment and realize that mating with living wild things in dark hours can go terribly wrong and scary, maybe it’s best to opt for a furry pajama suit at Opening Ceremony, the store carrying a line of clothes and jewelry based on the movie.
While dropping a few hundred short of a grand for a furry suit might seem like the ultimate extravagance, these cuffs by jewelry designer Pamela Love do the trick for the girl who still wants style once the wild animated beast craze subsides. The two above — a bird claw, one of Love’s signatures — screams feline. The other a silver cuff with an inscribed image of little Max’s boat, remains Love’s favorite. “I love that one, the one I made about the little boy.” After all, all wild beasts started as little boys once.
