NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Built upon a foundation of warmth and FEELS LIKE NOTHING ELSE comfort, the UGG® brand (a division of Deckers BrandNYSE: DECK) honors its 30+ year history by celebrating the most important element of the brand's heritage - the color chestnut. The brand's new women's 2015 fall collection is rooted by core silhouettes boasting the brand's signature chestnut colorway that are available at UGG® North America stores and online at UGGAustralia.com.
The color chestnut represents "warmth, comfort, honesty and dependability," notes Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. "It resonates with many audiences so it comes as no surprise that it has developed a cult-like following and has been the favorite color of UGG® consumers for over three decades."
In 1978 the UGG® brand launched the first Classic Boot in chestnut and the colorway quickly became a hero of the collection. Today, the original Classic Boot is an international icon and a wardrobe staple for millions of women across the world offering comfort, ease, functionality and style. While the original boot continues to evolve and inspire other product categories and brand extensions, the founding color of chestnut has remained a constant staple in hundreds of UGG® brand designs.
"Chestnut instantly distinguished the UGG brand and has grown to be recognized, loved and trusted all around the world. This fall season we're honoring the traits and history that this color represents," says Vice President Creative Director for the UGG® brand Leah Larson. "In celebration, this season we're featuring over two hundred silhouettes across our range for women in the brand's iconic chestnut color."
The brand continues to carry year-round trusted favorites like the Classic Short boot, recently featured in NYMag.com, the Dakota and the Bailey Bow while also introducing seasonal favorites like the Croft and the Samantha.
