Exceptional creativity and Exceptional compatibility, United Nude makes their second collaboration shoes for Iris van Herpen’s Spring Summer 2011 ‘Crystallization’ Collection.

After appearing in Vogue with a Mario Testino created shoot staring Lara Stone and hitting the streets on the feet of celebrities Kim Kardashian, Solange Knowles and Louise Rowe, it was clear that there needed to be a follow-up to this exciting collaboration.

The Spring Summer 2011 Iris van Herpen x United Nude collection will come in 2 versions of a sculptural high-heeled platform ankle bootie: the first, a complex weave of leather lace detailing; the second, elegantly draped with thin chains. The intricacy and precision of these creations require them to be 100% hand crafted in the most luxurious of leathers. The 100 limited edition pairs will retail at $995 and will be available in Black, Off White and Tan. Like previous Autumn/Winter 2010 collaboration, sold at the worlds greatest retailers such as Browns in London, l’Eclaireur in Paris and IT in Hong Kong, these shoes will be available at the world’s most exclusive retailers as well as United Nude’s own flagship stores in New York, Amsterdam, Vienna and Shanghai.

United Nude’s Creative Director Rem D Koolhaas reflected on the collaboration by saying: “Working with Iris and being an admirer of her work has been a real pleasure. The result of our collaboration this season is truly about facilitating her captivating work in fashion. Yet in the process the shoe that we together create is a product that stands on its own and gets attention for all the right reasons.”
