When UGG Australia reached out to me about their first foray into high end footwear and bags, I was cautiously optimistic. After all, their casual, signature shearling boots are not my usual style. But after looking at the Fall lookbook for the debut of their "UGG Collection," I am sorry I missed the Fall preview event in New York. The capsule collection was inspired by rustic Italy, with pieces handcrafted in Italy - very luxe indeed. I would have loved a closer look at the following items...
Caprera wedge lace-up booties in an array of textures and textiles (above). My personal favorite is the indigo version (center) in baby haircalf.
I love the inherent styling flexibility of many of the footwear styles. The Cavalieri motorcycle inspired boot (above), which comes with a detachable shaft, and can be worn in its ankle length incarnation.
Mini cross-body bags are certainly trendy, but there's something sleek and classic about these Catania Mini Messenger bags (above). I definitely have my eye on the Army green version in vachetta leather.
The Fiorentina wedge boot which can be worn multiple ways: full length, quarter or half cuffed (as shown above).
Last but not least, the Rosetta Messenger (above) comes in deliciously buttery looking vachetta leather.
The UGG Collection drops at select retailers and at UGG Australia flagship stores starting September 1st. Which are your favorites?
