As the brain-child of architecturally-trained designer Rem D. Koolhaas, UNITED NUDE is a design-oriented brand at the intersection of fashion and architecture. Since 2003, the company has embraced the tangible scale of a shoe as a means of designing objects of pure geometry and simplicity through form. By taking an architectural approach to design, UNITED NUDE is renowned for its structural capabilities and boasts shoe designs of unprecedented height and form. This commitment has granted them opportunities for collaborations with like-minded fashion innovators such as Iris Van Herpen and Issey Miyake. The brand is guided in equal parts by its insistence on innovation and modernity.
