When I was a young girl, I remember feeling a deep kinship with Max, the protagonist from Maurice Sendak's 1963 classic children's masterpiece Where the Wild Things Are. Every time I was sent to bed without my supper, I dreamed of embarking on magical journeys to rule over strange new creatures along with Max, he in his hooded wolf suit and me in a cute little fur minidress.
Director Spike Jonze has just adapted the celebrated 20 page children's book into a full-length feature film that opens nationwide October 16th, and in honor of all things wild, Opening Ceremony has created an exclusive collection of faux fur designs for grown up guys and girls like me who like to take a walk on the wild thing side.
With looks ranging from full-on wolf suits like Max's, to vests, t shirt dresses and men's and women's wild thing worthy jewels, you'll be ready for the winter and for whatever strange places you travel to after you've misbehaved.
If the looks and the prices are a little too wild for your taste, you can still rock a Where the Wild Things Are shirt from deLiA*s for only $26.50.
Wild thing, you make my heart sing.
