UGG Kids AW13 Collection

Last week I was invited to an intimate press lunch and private viewing of the AW13 / SS14 collections at Duck + Waffle courtesy of UGG Kids.

The venue was incredible and the food, views and company were all rather excellent too. 

Duck + Waffle is on the 40th floor of Heron Tower on Bishopsgate, which makes it the highest restaurant in the UK. It has unparallelled City views and a menu to match. We were treated to award-winning Executive Chef Daniel Doherty's signature sharing menu - and it really was out of this world.

BBQ-spiced crispy pigs ears, bacon wrapped dates, yellowfin tuna with watermelon and raw fillet of beef, served with foie gras, truffle and pecorino were just a few of my favourite plates.

But it wasn't all about the food (and drink! Yes, the Veuve Clicquot was flowing too!). We were also lucky enough to be talked through this season's UGG Kids footwear collection by the pro's - and to get a sneak peak at what SS14 has in store for us all too!

The UGG Kids collections fall into three categories - pre-walkers, girls and boys. UGG are renowned for combining fashion with functionality, and every single design takes both very seriously.

From the Pre-Walkers, my favourites were the pups (seen below, centre in pink); quite possibly the comfiest and cosiest sheepskin baby bootie I have ever seen.

From the Girls' collection I fell a little bit in love with the Cohans (above left) and the Ellees (above right) - the former being an AMAZING biker style leather boot (with UGG sheepskin lining of course!) and the latter a slightly different take on the signature suede UGG boots that we all know and love, with a sheepskin cuff and an adjustable buckle for additional support.

Then there was the Boys' collection. I don't know if it's because I have two girls, but I always adore the boys' stuff! These Butte boots (above left) are just awesome - I love the camouflage detailing. I also love the midnight blue Rally sneakers (above centre) and red Lil Bears (above right), both of which look super cosy as well as being super stylish.

So now, not only do I have a mama UGG wishlist as long as my arm (Deannas, Carabys and Darcies if you must know.... all in black and a size 6 please), I also have wishlists for both Daisy and Evie - and my nephews too!

The UGG Kids AW13 collection is available online here - or from the many UGG stores and concessions across the UK.xoxo
