United Nudea fashion brand describing themselves as "an iconic brand at the intersection between design and fashion is open-minded towards creative talent".

Two artists – a Dutch architect and a seventh generation shoemaker joined together with an important aim: creation of clear concept, elegance and innovation.

This fall season the time came for collaboration of the iconic brand with creative talent: Iris van Herpen –a Dutch fashion designer, very famous for her innovation and creativity in the field of avant-garde fashion and the three-dimension feel of her creations.

The fabulous result is named Iris van Herpen X United Nude: an admirable worldwide collection of 240 pairs of limited edition timeless shoes!

-168 pairs in pitch black
-72 pairs in pure ivory,

priced up to $1,295 and only available in Amsterdam, New York, Shanghai, Venice’s flagship store and concept stores and of course in United Nude’s online shop! Handmade with the complex production using the highest quality of Italian kid-leather, served in black or ivory version both are varied with golden coil across the shoe.
They had an exclusive première on Iris van Herpen’s Fall/Winter 2010-2011 collection called "Synesthesia" in London’s Fashion Week. Iris van Herpen was “inspired by the cross - sensational phenomenon of feeling sound, smelling motion, and hearing color.”
