I was invited to the UGG Bullring store a few weeks ago for an introduction to the new collection that had just launched.
Marrakesh is the inspiration this season and the colours strike you from the minute you enter the store. Jewel tones, some bright, some more subdued in many styles perfect for the forthcoming summer. The fabrics used are also inspired by the souks and desert of the north African city. Luxurious silk, raffia and canvas are perfect additions to the beautiful quality leather on the shoes.
I took some photos of the shoes that caught my eye in store....
Ornate printed silk paired with raffia wedges would be perfect with some cropped capri trousers.
This style the Lucianna also comes in bright raw silk in juicy jewelled colours.
The Aria with a metallic snakeskin add a little glamour to a neutral wedge.
The classic Salah gladiator that everyone should own with a slouchy sand hobo bag.
Perforated thongs to pad around poolside.
Atasha striped canvas wedges add a flash of colour from the sides.
The chunky beaded Naima heeled sandals with the natural coloured leathers you could imaging coming straight from the souks/
Maliah woven ankle boots could be worn now that spring has arrived, great with skinny jeans.
The array of classic UGG boots we all know.
Updated in sunny colours from the Marrakesh collection.
A sheepskin bucket bag in the softest black leather.
The ethnic touches make a classic a bit more fun.
Cutwork Lo Pro suede boots in desert tones.
The Lexington II. Butter soft and slouchy, you would do well to find a nicer biker jacket
Bright canvas pumps with a little skeepskin around the heel for comfort. It's in the little details.
A very classic and wearable mens collection.
I really liked the Em-Pire perf hi-tops in Seal grey.
The Hamra woven peep-toe ankle boots were a favourite of mine from the womens collection.
Perfect sized bucket bags for the essentials sand and emerald colours.
The quality of all of the shoes is second to none, they are so well made. Everyone knows how comfortable a pair of classic UGG boots are but this is extended to their shoe range too. Even the strappy sandals have a special cushioned sole which moulds to your own foot and the pumps are lined with a little sheepskin around the heel to stop any of that rubbing that we all get from new shoes.
Which were your favourite pair?
All I need now is the Hamra ankle boots on and a one way ticket to the ancient city of Marrakesh.
