Fashion doesn’t typically consider the future. Instead, it’s infamously known for living in the past. And yet somehow, Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta of Eckhaus Latta seem to have predicted the current state of 2020 with their latest collaboration with Ugg, which debuted at February fashion week promptly before the world shut down.

The entire lookbook features two models, stranded on a floating piece of wood in the ocean. Most of us aren’t living in such picturesque scenery but we are all definitely living in a literal desolated sea of loneliness as we close out yet another month in lockdown. The size of the wooden block used for the photos is also not too far off from the spatial reality of most New Yorkers’ living spaces during this time either. As Eckhaus told The Cut, “You can still wear five-inch heels when you’re only in 500 square feet of space.”

If the words ‘five-inch heels’ and ‘Ugg’ used together in a paragraph feels discordant, that’s because it is. Ugg is currently the unofficial fashion mascot of the year. Non-essential workers have had to put their office heels away in favor of Ugg  slip-on slippers for the seemingly never-ending cycle of WFH. Celebrities have started matching their face masks with their Ugg Fluff Yeah slippers for their daily walks to Erewhon. But the Eckhaus Latta x Ugg collection doesn’t feature the house slippers or fuzzy boots you’re used to from the Southern California brand known for comfort. Instead it features lace-up sandals, cowboy boots and, yes, five-inch heels that are all perfect for dancing. Suitably, those heels feature the word ‘Boogie’ in their name.

And yet, 2020 doesn’t appear to have any boogying in sight, unfortunately. Instead most of us are perfecting the non-dance move called The Fetal Position. Of course, that was the pose most often seen in the Eckhaus Latta x Ugg lookbook, which further proves the designers’ soothsayer ways. In 2020, all of us are just wearing Ugg while laying on the floor during our tenth panic spiral of the day. While none of us could have predicted we’d be here, we might as well make those Uggs as fabulous as possible right? It is the only thing we really have control over right now anyway.
