In 2003 architect Rem D. Koolhaas partnered with seventh generation shoemaker Galahad Clark and launched United Nude. Turning dreams into reality, their first shoe ‘the Mobius’ was developed with the guidance of the great Sergio Rossi and technical shoemaker Maurizio Martignago in Italy. Ever since, United Nude has become the iconic brand at the intersection of fashion and design, creating products that are about clear concepts, elegance and innovation.
In its 11th season, the collection has maintained true to its core principles while welcoming new additions to the collection. Being a brand that appeals to a wide range of people, United Nude has incorporated sportier styles such as a ‘Runner’ and ‘Elastic Slip-on Sneaker’ as well classic silhouettes such as D’orsy Pumps and ballet flats.
United Nude continues to push the boundaries of design in their latest ULTRA collection. The ‘Rivet’ materialization was inspired by the construction of airplanes and is offered in five different silhouettes – Pump, Sandal Hi, Sandal Mid, Ballet, and Loop. The ‘Web’, ‘Glare’ and ‘Shadow’ return in updated uppers and eye-catching colorways.
The HYBRID collection, combining elements of traditional shoe making with elements of contemporary molded shoe making, returns this season incorporating translucent uppers with elegant metallics and ocean tones.
