Het Amsterdamse United Nude is pure grafische perfectie. Dat kan bijna niet anders door het creatieve team achter United Nude. De basis is gelegd door founder Galahad Clark met zijn zevende generatie schoenmakers gen. Gebundeld met Creative Director en co-founder Rem D Koolhaas (niet te verwarren met zijn oom Rem Koolhaas) die een achtergrond in architectuur heeft.

De collectie bestaat uit meer dan alleen schoenen want de grafische flow gaat door in tassen en zelfs in stoelen! De SS15 mannencollectie bestaat uit slip ons, runners en een comfortabele classy schoen uitgevoerd rubber, leer en grafische prints in masculine en volwassen kleuren.

Oke, omdat United Nude toch bekend staat om de bijzondere vrouwelijke high heels. Ze hebben meerdere malen samengewerkt met de Nederlandse Iris van Herpen, maar ook de creaties van Ben van Berkel & Zaha Hadid zijn prachtig – wellicht door de architectonische achtergrond!
Allright, United Nude is very populair for women who like to push shoe boundaries. United Nude collaborated several times with Iris van Herpen to create shoes for Lady Gaga. I couldn’t help myself to share their collaboration with Ben van Berkel & Zaha Hadid – these shoes are just astonishing!!

Wat vind jij van deze bijzondere schoenen?

This brand is pure graphic perfection! Not completely surprising because both founders are exactly what a brand needs: a solid base and lot’s of creativity. Galahad Clark is a seventh generation shoemaker from England. His DNA is the solid foundation of the brand. On his side Creative Director Rem D Koolhaas (not to be confused with his older uncle Rem Koolhaas the world famous architect), who studied architecture. Under Rem’s creative leadership United Nude has become the worlds top expert in technically advanced / architectural ladies footwear.

But luckily they design more than just women shoes. Their SS15 collection menshoes is filled with colours and the materialisations are kept in a fun, but yet mature palette. Plain leathers, patent leathers, soft suede’s and Stingray embossed leathers are combined in a very precise manner. Enjoy!
