Ugg Australia, the sheepskin boots specialist, is diversifying into knitwear.
The company will launch a women’s and men’s knitwear collection for fall, available at Neiman Marcus, Ugg retail stores and through its Web site, uggaustralia.com. This company is certainly on the rise: last year, Ugg’s sales increased 35 percent to $100.2 million, from $74.4 million.
Available any day now, UGG sweaters will come in a range of warm colors and fits. Although perfect for those preppy types heading to the cabin, these pieces are fit for anyone’s wardrobe.
