Wild Child


Opening Ceremony, the ultra cool New York boutique, has teamed up with director Spike Jonze to create a line of Where The Wild Things Are inspired pieces. The 15 looks are modelled and named after the characters from the classic children’s book and as such, there’s an awful lot of faux fur.
Some of the pieces, like the Alexander Mini Skirt ($220) and Douglas Bomber ($600), are quite chic and classic, while others, like the Bull Shawl Jacket ($635) and Max Sweatshirt ($460), just look silly.
One of the aims of this collection is to bring a bit of that childhood magic and fantasy into our everyday lives and they’ve nailed it to a certain extent here. But what I think is collection speaks more loudly too, is my generation’s love affair with nostalgia and our unwillingness to grow-up.
