United Nude announced their second collaboration with Iris van Herpen for 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. 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, as well as United Nude's own flagship stores in New York, Amsterdam, Shanghai and the soon to be opened store in London.
"Working with Iris and being an admirer of her work has been a real pleasure," said Rem D Koolhaas, Creative Director of United Nude. "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."
