Ugg Asia to take on new store concept

American footwear retailer Ugg’s new global retail store concept – part of the brand’s largest re-launch in 37 years – will be introduced in Ugg Asia outlets this year.

Coinciding with the 10th anniversary of Ugg’s New York flagship store in SoHo, the new 263 sqm retail concept store opened at Disney Springs, Walt Disney World Resort, Florida.

 The store was designed by Checkland Kindleysides to be scalable so it can fit different formats from wholesale to showroom spaces.

The concept honours the footwear’s history, says Stefano Caroti of clothing/footwear giant Deckers Brands, which owns Ugg.

“The inspiration came from the Californian roots of the brand, its connections to nature and its modernist vibe – a sense of stylish living that’s both ‘off duty’ and ‘on air’,” says Checkland Kindleysides creative director Joe Evans.

“The store offers a relaxing social environment that radiates the Ugg brand’s luxurious warmth, engages through sensorial brand storytelling and invites you to enjoy the good things in life with good people.”

Meanwhile, the new look will roll out in Shanghai and Tokyo toward the end of this year.
