"I wanted to make a shoe with an invisible heel. I looked down and there it was: The Eames chair leg from the chair I was sitting on... What if the heel pretended to be not a part of the shoe but be part of the surroundings? This way the heel would be in disguise and in a way disappear...The chair became a part of the shoe by the simple gesture of remix in design."
—Rem D. Koolhaas, United Nude
Breaking into New York Fashion Week is "Killer heels: The Art of High-Heeled shoes” which opens to the public today September 10 at the Brooklyn Museum in New York, NY. Amongst the total of 178 pairs of shoes on show, United Nude is featured widely with some of its most iconic creations, from the first Mobius design to the highest platform in the exhibition, the 20 cm black bootie platform stilettos, with gold men statues worn by Lady Gaga at the launch of her perfume.
If you happen to be in New York City don’t miss the chance to see United Nude's almost UNbelievable designs, all gathered together for an exhibition on the evolution of High-Heel shoes. (The show runs through to February 2015)
