Clear conception, innovation and design, at the intersection of fashion and architecture.’ The ‘broken-hearted’ love story of Rem D Koolhaas, nephew and namesake of architect Rem Koolhaas, will go down in shoemaking history for giving birth to the company behind some of today’s most forward-thinking footwear designs.
Established in 2003, together with Galahad Clark (a seventh generation shoemaker), each UNITED NUDE product holds a strong connection to architectural design and represents an exploration of the possibilities offered by movement, colors and materials.
Commencing with its inaugural ‘Möbius’ shoe, the brand is guided in equal parts by pushing the boundaries of footwear design, and collaborating on limited edition releases with high profile designers from IRIS VAN HERPEN to ZAHA HADID and ISSEY MIYAKE.
“We ended up breaking the rules of shoes, not for the sake of breaking them, but simply by not knowing them.”
Named winner of a 2016 Wallpaper* Design Award for its LO RES CAR, UNITED NUDE is positioned as a world leader in design. The brand, based in Los Angeles, is sold in over 50 countries worldwide, with concept stores in Amsterdam, Dubai , Vienna, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Taipei, Jakarta and Beijing.
