Remember back in the day when designer Kim Jones was just doing his eponymous thing in London? Then he landed the Umbro deal, followed by the Dunhill deal, and now Jones' currency is at an all-time high—he's the head guy at Louis Vuitton menswear. For anyone who's keen to snag a piece of Jones' recent work sans the Vuitton tie-in, check out this just-launched Bean Pole x Kim Jones collaboration, a full collection of men's shirting, pants, knits, and outerwear priced from $150 to $700 and sold exclusively at Opening Ceremony beginning today. What's Jones' inspiration for this line? Apparently, his favorite artist, Ed Ruscha, and his favorite animal species, the Raccoon Dog, right, which appears in the prints. This got us thinking: what's our favorite animal species? We're pretty torn between the Angora Rabbit and the Pygmy Goat.
