Take a Look at BOSS’ Wild Ones Collaboration

Five animals, two seminal German brands, one limited-edition collaboration—these are the stats behind BOSS and Meissen’s latest collection. Porcelain sculptor Maximilian Hagstotz created figurines based on the Big Five safari animals: lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo. Each piece is inspired by traditional African sculptures but imbued with a modern monochrome motif that emphasizes each animal’s signature traits. BOSS translated the figurines into wearable art, such as a lion-emblazoned leather carryall bag and printed cashmere essentials. The label also designed sleek, evening-ready pieces: silk jacquard ties, pocket squares, and tailored jackets all get the royal animal treatment. In a move that transcends borders of the German collab, Hugo Boss is making a donation to the conservation charity Elephants For Africa, which helps provide education and outreach in Botswana to promote human-wildlife coexistence.
