The UGG Collective.
Introducing the newest members of the UGG Collective, a diverse and unique group of our favourite Cali residents. Handpicked for their unique sense of realness, these free-spirited souls embody everything that is west coast lifestyle, from surf-lined coast, snow capped mountains and skated streets to bohemian culture and modern art. They are provocative, progressive, free-spirited, sensual, optimistic and warm – they challenge what is now and they are creating the future. And that’s why we love them.
Among the collective for Spring 2018 is a trailblazing punk band from Orange County, a famous Los Angeles muralist, students from University of California Santa Barbara, a fashion photographer, an acclaimed vlogger and an iconic multitalented Californian. And the spirit of California runs through the veins of every single one of them
