Stories by UGG®
For over 40 years, UGG has been a champion of bold individualism. Entering a new season and year, we keep that value close to heart. A time for new life, spring holds infinite opportunities to reinvent the status quo. Through changing times, we congregate around great ideas, great people, and great stories. This season, we put all three on display, partnering with inspiring individuals who live life on their own terms.
Channeling the endless potential of the West, with its open roads, diverse landscapes, and self-made attitude, we proudly present the SS19 UGG Collective: a group of free-thinking creatives whose unflinching pursuit of passion mirrors our longstanding commitment to artistry, authenticity, and self-expression. Across disciplines and genres, their lifestyles represent everything UGG strives to be – bold, real, and uniquely Californian.

THE MODEL & THE MUSICIAN.
LA-based model Mikaela enjoys singing, painting, eating ramen, and exploring the city with her musician boyfriend Shawkat. When she’s not with Shawkat, she’s dancing the night away in Hollywood with her friends. When Shawkat’s not with Mikaela, he’s navigating the local music scene of Southern California and working to create songs that invigorate people.

The daughter of two artists turned gallery owners, Jozie is a lifelong creative whose designs are intensely preoccupied with life in all its manifestations. A true multi-media artist, she incorporates her designs into tattoos, clothing, jewelry, and prints. As fixated upon internal experience as she is upon external form, Sourdiffe’s work explores life’s ups and downs, finding beauty in tragedy, and strength in vulnerability.
