Following her second collaborative line with Converse, Shanghai-based designer Feng Chen Wang reveals another convention-defying footwear release with UGG.For her latest capsule, the LVMH Prize-winning designer explores the ancient Chinese yin-yang philosophy through complementary opposites. Dressed in contrasting black/white and pink/grey hues, the collection consists of three styles of high-top sandals and fluffy slides, and a black zippered bucket hat made from faux leather and fur.The Feng Chen Wang x UGG Sandal is the highlight of the capsule, putting a spin on UGG’s conventional boot with a novel three-in-one design consisting of two modular elements. When taken out of the box, the pairs resemble a snowboarding boot with its bulky design, buckle lacing system, rear zip, and soft-hightop collar. When deconstructed the sandal turns into a cozy UGGplush boot liner which can be worn indoors, and an adjustable sandal that can be worn in the summer.The full Feng Chen Wang x UGG collection is now available at the Feng Chen Wang website. The UGG Sandals are priced at €290 EUR (approx. $325 USD) while the slides and bucket hat are priced at €145 EUR (approx. $162 USD).
