Cosy feet and winter warmers served amongst endless champagne and some hot model types just about sums up our evening at the launch of the UGG Australia store in Knightsbridge. Open from tomorrow (November 4 2011) the store is bright and breezy (brighter than the Covent Garden store) and offers the complete range of footwear collections alongside outerwear, handbags and accessories (including the classic adorable ear muffs).
Models chill out in gorgeous UGG outerwear
We spotted a classic West London party crowd including supermodel Jade Parfitt, various members of the Made in Chelsea crew (Caggie Dunlop and Ollie Locke) and model Cara Delevigne. Jameela Jamil spun some wicked tunes on the decks (although I may be biased seeing as though she played my favourite – Jackson Five ‘I want you back’. Absolute tune).
The atmosphere was certainly buzzing and the collection matched the party mood. Highlights for AW11 (in store now) included glittery trainers, turn down shearling and suede boots (which I wore – see below) and fluffy boots with matching gilets. We can’t wait for the launch of the UGG Holiday Collection, in the Knightsbridge store from November 21, which features brushed leather and neon sparkly styles.
