As part of a university assignment, Valentin Ozich once summed up his personal style in three words — I love ugly. The phrase stuck and eventually served as the inspiration for his New Zealand-based clothing line and retailer, which Ozich currently runs with co-founder Barnaby Marshall. Thankfully, the label’s collections are a little more aesthetically pleasing than its moniker suggests — the garments are well-conceived, wearable basics with a twist. For Holiday 2012-2013, I Love Ugly offers up a selection of statement pieces alongside more subtle offerings. Included are an array of speckled T-shirts, a floral button-down shirt, shorts, and a very handsome and minimal bomber jacket. For those looking to stay more organized this year, I Love Ugly’s latest timepieces offer a stylish way to keep track of time. The I Love Ugly 2012-2013 Holiday offerings are available now at our online store.
