You know BOSS as the luxury icon that takes care of your fashion needs. You may or may not know Meissen, who’s the longest established porcelain sculptor in all of Europe. These two German brands have come together to conquer holiday fashion with stunning monochrome seasonal wear with designs featuring some of the animal kingdom’s heavy hitters.
The sweaters, shirts, coats, jackets dresses and accessories feature designs inspired by Meissen’s celebrated Big Five porcelain figurines of the African lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. Each item is decorated with a monochrome pattern placed to emphasise the animal’s characteristic traits.
The Big Five collection is designed by sculptor Maximilian Hagstotz. It features the majestic beasts depicted in an angular style inspired by traditional African wooden sculptures and functions as the starting point for the collection.
The remainder comes down to BOSS’ expertise in designer fashion with styles for both men and women plus accessories like sneakers, a weekend bag, backpack, tie, socks, cufflinks, pocket squares and scarf. With Meissen being a porcelain sculptor, it would be a wasted opportunity not to include at least one sculpted item. That’s why you can also pick up mugs printed with Hagstotz’s designs.
The monochrome Big Five capsule collection from BOSS x Meissen is available now, uniting the two brands’ shared passions for quality, design and creativity. The seasonal wear is nothing like the cringe red, white and green sweaters you traditionally see around the holidays.
