Fashion Tribe: ‘Dogs in Coats’ at Max Mara
BY NADINE KAM / email@example.com
Max Mara is welcoming a special exhibition of William Wegman’s iconic “Dogs in Coats” photography series featuring images of Weimaraners in Max Mara’s signature 101801 double-breasted cashmere and wool beaver coats.
The exhibition debuted in Boston, where Wegman—who rose to fame with his Weimaraner portraits—earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Massachusetts College of Art. The show made its way to Chicago, New York, Toronto, Houston, San Francisco and cities in between before arriving at the Waikiki store for a shopping event taking place 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 1.
Max Mara originally commissioned Wegman to create a series of eight images featuring its 101801 coat in celebration of the brand’s 50th anniversary in 2001. In celebration of the renewal of “Dogs in Coats,” Max Mara is offering a reproduction of 30 limited edition 101801 coats with the original silhouette and camel color. Exclusive Dogs in Coats notecards will be included with every purchase. Guests will also receive an exclusive signed edition of Wegman’s book, “Polaroids,” with a qualifying purchase of $2,000 or more.
The Max Mara store is at 2186 Kalakaua Ave. Call 926-6161.
