Could United Nude Be The Most Beautiful Shoe In The World?
June 20, 2008
What happens when you infuse high-heeled shoes with some Rem Koolhaas design? You get United Nude, a British shoe company whose breathtaking creations combine architecture and abstraction to elevate footwear to the level of art. We've reviewed United Nude before, but now that more looks from their spring summer 2008 collection are available online, we just had to revisit the phenomenon.
You probably think I'm exaggerating, but really I'm not: I studied architecture, and I know modernist composition when I see it. And so will you. Just feast your eyes on the Porn Toe ($250) – and think what you will of the name.
Perfect for the bright colors we're seeing this summer, the Mono Eamz pump ($175) is an ode to the design and vision of a lesser-known but equally brilliant chair designed by the Eames duo: the prototype for the Lazy-Boy!
