“We Want To Be More Ugg Than Ugg Outlet Online”: Telfar Clemens On His New Sexy-Cosy Boots

Trying to get hold of Telfar Clemens is like tracking down one of his “Bushwick Birkins”. Nigh on impossible. It’s hardly surprising: his rapid ascent into popular culture, through collaborations with White Castle, Century 21 and, most recently, Ugg, means he’s a busy man. The democratic designer, who is one of few who has always stood for total inclusivity, has just aced athletic wear, after pro runner Emmanuel Matadi asked Telfar to design the Olympic kit for Team Liberia. No biggy for Telfar, who whipped up 70 pieces, including sweats, unitards and kit bags, and will sell similar sports pieces via his 2004-founded brand after the games.

The five Liberian track-and-field stars heading to Tokyo will have plenty of athleisure to wear around base camp. The second drop of Telfar’s genderless Ugg collaboration for spring/summer 2021 is the definition of cosy. “We wanted to combine the two most comfortable things possible – Uggs and sweatpants,” Clemens tells British Vogue, the day after his joyous Olympics news has hit the mainstream. “We just wanted to be more Ugg than Ugg.”

How does one up the snug factor of the cushioned footwear that’s the sartorial equivalent of a comfort blanket? By doubling down on the heritage of both brands. The perfect all-American hybrid, according to the Queens-born creative, is both “stupid and genius”. “We made the whole thing funny, which it turns out is really fun,” he shares of the tongue-in-cheek, unabashedly sexy campaign pictures and videos.

The spring/summer 2021 lookbook features Telfar himself and other members of his crew rolling around in the grey booties, made from repurposed heather Telfar sweats and lined with Ugg plush upcycled wool. “What do you wear with that except underwear and a T-shirt?” Telfar explains of the baby tee and boxers he styles with his fleecy footwear.

The now ubiquitous Ugg X Telfar crystal-encrusted T-shirt is also back for another season. “Take it off, but keep your Uggs on,” teases Telfar of his “icy” edit that’s perfect for staying in bed, but not sleeping. As the world returns to normal and the thought of spending another year in tracksuits becomes unbearable, this is loungewear that will always deserve its place in the sun – on everyone.
