CLASSIC LUXE AVEC CAROLYN MURPHY
Carolyn Murphy Reveals UGG's New Look
Harper's BAZAAR: Why did you decide to partner with UGG this season?
Carolyn Murphy: The partnership with UGG is very serendipitous actually; I grew up with the brand. I have uncles who spent a lot of time between Australia and Santa Barbara, where they would surf (they went to UCSB), so I actually know the UGG boot very well. They were always a part of my life growing up, and when the brand asked if I would shoot their campaign I got super excited, not only because I knew I would have access to these boots, but I was even more excited because there's obviously a real authenticity. I was really surprised when I showed up to do the shoot, because of this new "Classic Luxe" collection— you know, being a little bit more tailored and having a different shape. I'm excited about that! People have this notion of the UGG boot being the UGG boot,but as you can see it's very different this go-around.
HB:It's interesting how people originally saw them more as snow boot but they're also for the beach.
CM: I think that they're really transitional—snow, surf, whatever it is. They're so comfortable, and even the people who say that they don't wear them...you know that they do. There's the naysayer, but there's nothing like them out there and to be able to slip on an UGG boot in the fall and winter, and especially for me after surfing, which is how I was introduced to them. It's really interesting to have this different shape. They're more wearable for everyday. It's pretty exciting.
HB:What's your favorite way to wear your UGG boots off the beach?
CM:It's interesting because when we were doing the shoot, it was kind of dreamy because we had these gorgeous coats and knits. I loved the chunky sweater with a really great leather pant. We did that toward the end in an off-the-cuff moment for the look book. If feels super casual, but still doesn't look sloppy. It doesn't look like you just rolled out of bed.
