Ugg has committed to a sustainable future with its latest collection of fuzzy footwear. Having collaborated with high-profile brands like Telfar and Molly Goddard, Ugg has spent much of the last year in the spotlight. In October 2020, the brand made a public commitment to sustainability with the launch of their Feel Good platform, intended to keep customers updated on their eco-conscious goals and initiatives. “Our design team took inspiration from our iconic styles and created new silhouettes with carbon-neutral, plant-based materials. The resulting Plant Power collection tells a story about what is possible, and it is an exciting step in on our journey towards a more sustainable future,” says the company’s president, Andrea O’Donnell, about this new eco-minded collection. The styles are made from materials like renewable sugarcane, TENCEL™ Lyocel.

Launched on March 12, Eshajori is a Canadian streetwear brand conceived by Matt Lam. The name translates from the Japanese phrase meaning “those who meet, must part.” The first collection of two t-shits, a hoodie, a beanie and a trucker hat is available in limited quantities and will not be restocked. Sourced in Los Angeles and Toronto and put together in Vancouver, this local label is one to watch.
