Does Tamara Mellon’s Explanation Excuse The Jimmy Choo Uggs?

Annika Harris / December 21, 2010

Wondering how the hideous collaboration between Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia came about? Let Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo founder and creative chief officer, explain:

“Uggs were my guilty pleasure until I was on a flight to London and the airline staff said, ‘We’re all so excited to see what shoes you’re wearing!’ I had Uggs on. So now we’ve done a collaboration where I took traditional Uggs and decorated them with the DNA of Jimmy Choo — animal prints and studs.”

I think we can all probably agree that Uggs were doing just fine without an injection of Jimmy Choo DNA. [The Cut]
