Behind the label: United Nude

Pavan Shamdasani

 

Who started it? Shoe label United Nude was founded in 2003 by two members of famous design families: Rem D. Koolhaas, the nephew of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, and Galahad Clark, a seventh-generation scion of British shoemaking giant Clarks.

Why we love it: the brand, which specialises in high heels, blends architectural designs with unusual materials. Its signature model, the Mobius, put the label on the map with its edgy and different, yet entirely functional, appeal. The brand's innovative creations have a highly structured look, far removed from the overly feminine offerings that flood the footwear market.

What we'd recommend: the navy Mosaic heeled bootie (above right; HK$4,190) with metallic underlay. And we really dig the futuristic vibe of the Lo Res pump (above left; HK$3,990) in ox-blood.

Where can you get it? United Nude is available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central, tel: 3695 3388.
