Amelia’s Magazine | UGG Australia launches the I Do Wedding Collection and Piccadilly Flagship Store

Remember UGG? that much derided maker of *comfortable* booties worn by many a D-list celeb? Well, slowly and quietly UGG has undertaken a design transformation and grown up… I had an inkling of this when I was gifted a pair of wonderful sheepskin clog booties a few years ago that rapidly became my favourite footwear of the season, but things have moved on rapidly since then.

This season UGG Australia are really ramping things up a gear in the UK… what with the launch of the I Do wedding collection (pearlescent versions of the original boots) and the opening of a big new flagship store in Piccadilly, London. UGG Australia already has concept stores in Knightsbridge, Westfield London, Covent Garden and Manchester, and their new bridal collection will be available exclusively in these shops.

Whilst I find the I Do jeweled Bailey Button and sequinned Classic Sparkles boots to be of dubious taste I can imagine that a certain type of bride would absolutely love their combination of glitz and comfort in the run up to and aftermath of a big schmaltzy wedding. I will concede that the Fluff Flip Flop looks spectacularly cosy: UGG Australia pride themselves on using only the very best sheepskin and craft techniques for their products.

Amelia’s Magazine | Happy Birthday Dr. Martens

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Biiiiiirthday Dr. Martens
Happy Birthday to you!

Today iconic footwear brand Dr. Martens celebrates its 50th birthday! From humble beginnings in Germany to global fashion brand, rx Dr. Martens’ history is an illustrious one.

Originally developed as a replacement for World War II footwear which was deemed uncomfortable and restrictive, this the Dr. Martens boot was developed by its loving creator, cialis 40mg Klaus Märtens, in to what we know and love today. A pioneer of recycled materials, long before today’s eco-friendly brands, Märtens used discarded rubber from Luftwaffe airfields to produce the boots.

Like David Hasselhoff, Dr. Martens boots were originally a hit with German housewives, and it was only in 1960 when the footwear brand was launched internationally that they became a fashion statement.

There’s no other such iconic footwear that so instantly represents so many subcultures; skinheads, punks, emos and grungers all claim them as their emblem, and now the East End gliterrati are pumping them back into fashion – albeit in this season’s colours.

Most recently the brand ventured into designer collaborations, with Raf Simons notoriously treading dangerously by changing the Dr. Marten’s staple yellow stitching to red. The result, however, teamed with patent leather, was a real winner.

To celebrate their birthday Dr. Marten’s flagship store in Covent Garden is selling it’s most famous 1460 boot (so called because it was first produced 50 years ago, on 1st of April 1960) for only £14.60. Yeah, that’s right. So head down there today and buy yourself a piece of history.

Amelia’s Magazine | Allcast Leather Duck Boots, Kew Gardens and David Nash Sculptures in the Snow

Crocs Allcast Leather Duck Boot David Nash
A few weeks ago, as you may have noticed, it snowed. And like everyone else I did my best to enjoy our short lived winter wonderland, getting out and about with baby in tow, wearing my comfy new Crocs Allcast Leather Duck Boots. Think you know Crocs? Think again… the brand encompasses much more than the well known flip-flop that has as many foes as fans.

Crocs Allcast Leather Duck Boot
The design of these big cosy boots was inspired by equestrian styles, with sealed seams, water resistant stitching and a fleecy Sherpa lining. Croslite is used to construct the super comfortable base and rubber soles provide great grip so you won’t slip on the ice. Perhaps the best bit about these boots (apart from their amazing comfort factor) is their lightness: most snow boots are pretty heavy but these feel as light as a pair of trainers.

David Nash in the snow. Utterly fabulous.

Anyway, I had a great time bounding around in my Duck Boots. We took these photos on a visit to Kew Gardens, the wintery weather ensuring we had the grounds virtually to ourselves. How fab do the David Nash sculptures look covered in a sprinkling of snow? This renowned artist carves huge lumps of wood with a chainsaw and an axe, sometimes using fire to char the results. There are lots of large sculptures dotted around the grounds of Kew and many more to discover nestled amongst the greenery of the Temperate House. The exhibition is on until 14th April 2013 and is well worth a visit.
