here it is: ugg australia's latest. well, technically, its upcoming, but you know what i mean. it has been my goal for a couple of years now to prove to you that the brand isn't just about those shearling-lined booties and i hope that this line-up — which includes both its signature and high-end lines — opens your eyes to the extensive range.
i haven’t covered ugg australia in a while, but i do love to prove you all wrong in assuming that the brand exclusively churns out slipper-like footwear. because it doesn’t! it also makes heels and wedges, as you can clearly see! the styles shown are part of the upcoming spring 2013 collection, which should start appearing in stores now.
it is interesting to note that this season’s line was inspired by the exotic wonders of marrakesh. this is hinted at in the rich neutrals, woven details, and bead accents.
the holidays are upon us! i don’t know about you, but i put gift-getting off until the last minute; thankfully, i get the opportunity to attend a few previews before things really get hectic, so the recent ugg holiday 2012 event really got my engine running when it came to cold weather under-the-menorah accoutrements. the overall theme of the preview, which took place at the aspen social club, focused solely on what should be given and received to friends and family; mittens, earmuffs, and shearling-lined slippers were an obvious choice. unexpected options included leather outerwear (my favorite), glam boots, and seasonal handbags in classic colors like black, tan, and ivory.
need extra help finding the perfect gift? ugg has a specially designed “gift boutique.”
just last week, i attended a preview for ugg australia's upcoming fall 2012 collection. i really enjoy how the boot brand has been mixing things up—especially with the chunky heels, more meaningful (rather than everywhere, all the time) shearling detail, and classic shapes seen here. the photos above speak for themselves, but how cute are those lace-up hunter-esque rainboots? perfect to shield you from an autumnal rainstorm.
check back on wednesday to see the collection, ugg’s luxury line.
though i didn’t party nearly as hard as others on fashion’s night out, i was more than happy to attend the ugg morning after fno brunch yesterday morning for a few reasons: i like to eat food, the ugg showroom has the most beautiful view of the upper east side, everyone who works at ugg is lovely. everyone. quote me.
(jaimen and i are such good friends that we’ve unintentionally become style twins.)
