UGG Australia and Pendleton Woolen Mills have collaborated together on a cool new collection just in time for Fall/Winter 2014. The limited edition collection includes three men’s and four women’s footwear silhouettes and one women’s handbag, combining iconic UGG silhouettes with Pendleton jacquard fabric.
“Finding two brands with such deep ties to a shared heritage is special,” says UGG president Connie Rishwain. “Both brands’ deep-rooted history and respect for quality has created a dynamic collaboration.”
The limited edition collection from UGG and Pendleton includes individually numbered styles that fuse UGG Australia’s classic aesthetic with Pendleton’s ‘Coyote Butte’ pattern.
The signature pattern is inspired by the tepee-shaped rock formations of Coyote Buttes, a region in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness of Utah and Arizona.
The ‘Coyote Butte’ pattern incorporates the majestic colors of the Jurassic Navajo Sandstone rock formations that are colored fantastical hues of red, orange, purple, and pink by iron-rich groundwater.
The design also incorporates traditional Native American geometrics, such as the universal “Greek key” pattern that illustrates the balance in nature, and triangles that reflect the shapes of the buttes.
