When Rem and Galahad first met, Galahad saw the ‘Möbius’ shoe design, and he was instantly convinced that a new brand had to be formed. Then came the name. United Nude derived from the fact that products evolve from international teams in an open way with direct recognition.
Since the‘Möbius’ shoe’s release in 2003, United Nude has established itself as an iconic brand at the intersection between design and fashion, creating dozens of new lines each season. Specifically for SS11 United Nude has launched a menswear collection, which even to my eye is just as tantalising as the women’s. Continually pushing the boundaries and creating new constructions and styles such as Abstract: a vertiginous heel with a platform base. Comprised of wooden blocks to form the heel, the construction is rustic and well altogether Abstract.Iris Van Herpen for SS11. Available as a sculptural high-heeled platform ankle boot adorned with a complex weave of leather lace detailing or elegantly draped with thin chains, the intricacy and precision of these beautiful shoes are testament to the fact that they are 100% hand crafted. With only 100 limited edition pairs, these are sure to sell like hotcakes.
Currently sold in over 40 countries worldwide, there is no stopping United Nude.
