BOSS x Meissen Look to the Big Five for Holiday Collection
This winter, BOSS found a new muse — five, actually — for its holiday collection. Partnering with landmark German porcelain manufacturer Meissen, the designer is launching a range of pieces that honor African wildlife’s Big Five: lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo. BOSS was inspired by Meissen’s animal figurine series the Big Five by young sculptor Maximillian Hagstotz, the capsule collection features both casual and formal pieces for the holiday season.
The collection of monochrome pieces are super adaptable staples that can be integrated easily into everyday wear. One staple t-shirt has been embellished with a prominent lion graphic and a sweatshirt is embroidered with a buffalo design. Of the more formal pieces, printed button-downs are ornamented with contrasting prints of each animal, and accessories like jacquard ties and pocket squares are also given the wildlife treatment. The label’s range of tailoring remains sharper than ever, and leather bags are adorned with black and white patterns.
Beyond offering a vast range of pieces ahead of holiday party season, the BOSS x Meissen collection is for a cause. Celebrating the inspiration of the line, BOSS will make a donation to Elephants for Africa, an English non-profit that works with local and national stakeholders in Botswana to provide education and community outreach focused on conserving the beloved animals.
The BOSS x Meissen Holiday collection is available in BOSS stores and online now.
