Limited-edition "Classic Luxe Collection" reinvents the iconic UGG boot with an Italian, sleeker-fitting silhouette
NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time in 37 years, UGG®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE:DECK), will launch an entirely re-imagined, limited-edition line of UGG® boots with Carolyn Murphy as the face of the new collection.
UGG® Vice President of Marketing Nancy Mamann states, "We chose Carolyn Murphy as we felt that she truly embodies the UGG® brand. She, along with Classic Luxe, is both elegant and refined, making Carolyn the perfect ambassador for the campaign."
Classic Luxe is a sophisticated take on the venerable, world-renowned UGG® Classic boot, designed in Italy. They feature a sleeker, more fashion-forward silhouette, with more refined features and a slimmer, more contoured construction, while still delivering the same warmth and comfort that feels like nothing else.
"We chose to offer a slimmer fit to our customers to give them more flexibility in their fashion choices – to be able to step into the most chic situations without having to sacrifice UGG comfort," says UGG® Creative Director Leah Larson. "And we chose to manufacture the Classic Luxe collection exclusively in Italy, to reflect the premium Italian craftsmanship that entices women around the world."
Carolyn Murphy describes her style by saying, "My style definitely leans towards low maintenance, classic, and comfortable pieces. When it comes to clothes, I work from the bottom up, choosing my shoes first so I know I can make it through the day. The Abree from the Classic Luxe Collection keeps me comfortable and looking chic throughout the day."
Finely crafted in Italy from premium materials, the Classic Luxe Collection streamlines and slims the silhouettes of our Classic boots. Rendered in meticulously cut goat suede and Merino Twinface, these sleek and luxuriously soft boots feature a leather logo-embossed heel and chic color combinations in a rich fall palette.
Premium suede complements the Abree boot's heritage style, giving it a luxurious and contemporary feel. Equal parts fashion and function, the feminine silhouette comes in two heights and boasts a moisture-wicking sheepskin insole that guarantees signature UGG® comfort. Both Abree styles have a medial metal zipper with an antique bronze finish that offers a slim fit to hug the leg.
Tasseled fringe puts a little swing in the Karisa boot's buckled step, serving as a fun accent to the soft Italian suede. This boot is an update with just enough edge and features a functional metal snap for easy entry.
