Right when the long-awaited weekend is just around the corner, we assemble and (of course) share several news that are on our minds and keep us on our toes.
ON FRÄULEINS MIND
UGG x DENIM TEARS
Inspired by his indigenous background, Tremaine Emory utilises art as a way to tell stories. Suing together culture with fashion, UGG x DENIM TEARS represents a personal exploration of Emory’s Black Seminole heritage. Classic iconography and craft techniques give homage to Indigenous and Black American history, tradition and art. By exploring his Black Seminole heritage, Emory found an overlap in his own family story within New Orleans and the Black Masking Culture community there (also referred to as the “Mardi Gras Indians”)- which plays a central role in his sixty-minute documentary featuring cultural icons Big Chief Demond Melancon and Chief Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah.
The capsule collection includes two different models: The UGG x Denim Tears Tasman is crafted from signature suede and sheepskin with florally adorned panels and finished with whipstitch detailing around the collar. The UGG x Denim Tears Classic ONIA adapts the brand’s icon, representing the fusion of Emory’s cultures with embroidery and beading. Crafted from UGG’s signature suede and sheepskin.
