United Nude founder Rem D Koolhaas doesn’t follow fashion trends

Through his footwear brand United Nude, founder and creative director Rem D Koolhaas, who is a trained architect, has designed iconic creations for the likes of Lady Gaga and has collaborated with high profile creatives such as Iris van Herpen, Zaha Hadid and Issey Miyake.

The Dutch label is known for “downsizing architecture to its most vulnerable scale – that of a woman’s foot,” and while their more flamboyant designs grab the most attention, their designs for everyday wear are just as impressive.

From the Mobius – a shoe design that appears in a single band, uniting the upper, sole, foot-bed and heel into one infinite piece – to the Loop, a mind-boggling shoe silhouette, every pair of United Nude shoes are surprisingly comfortable and stable.
