Written by Guest Blogger Magdalena Kapuscinska

These shoes had an impressive entrance in the “Crystallization” fashion show by Iris van Herpen for SS 2011 collection. They perfectly accompanied the concept of the show inspired by transformation of liquid into crystals. What we are talking about is an amazing double version of high-heeled platform ankle booties, the exceptional result of the second prolific

collaboration between innovative Dutch designer Iris van Herpen and architectural footwear label United Nude. They are preserved in a similar concept of precision and intricacy. First line characterizes with a complex weave of leather lace detailing while second version is kept in elegant punk glamor of thin-draped chains. These 100 limited pairs are available in colors of Black, Off White and Tan. Because of handcraft production they bring exclusivity and exceptional quality.

Rem D Koolhaas, United Nude’s Creative Director who is also an admirer of Herpen’s work, describes the collaboration by saying: “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.”
