UGG and Telfar have unveiled the first drop of their collaboration, coming after the partnership was teased by the designer himself last year. The all-gender collection consists of UGG’s signature footwear, alongside both apparel and underwear.
The footwear items are the collection’s stand-out pieces, with two heights of UGG’s Classic Boot silhouette. Both the ankle-length and calf-high boots are based on printed heather sweats from TELFAR’s mainline collections, which have then been reimagined across the uppers.
Additionally, the Spring/Summer 2021 release features apparel and underwear inspired by the cozy footwear. The collaborative T-shirt is encrusted with a a co-branded logo, while the underwear features the same logo repeated across the elasticized satin waistband.
Describing working with UGG as “orgasmic,” Telfar explained the cozy-influence to HYPEBEAST: “We wanted to be more UGG than UGG. We wanted peak UGG.” Discussing the collaboration, Telfar also discussed the importance of keeping a sense of fun in the project. “We’ve had so much fun with this collab,” the designer added. “We just got a vibe from the beginning that this was going to be sexy, but also extremely funny. Fashion and streetwear don’t do funny much. That’s a shame.”
By working with UGG, Telfar is continuing his previously-discussed goal of creating “value without scarcity.” As he sums up, “this shit is the bomb and affordable!”
