As this is my first post as a fashion blogger of sorts, I’d like to introduce myself with my very favorite shoe designers and their newest collaboration with a Dutch designer, Mattijs van Bergen. For more information on the logistics of this designer and his relation to the ever fabulous United Nude shoe company, see http://www.unitednude.com/news/2012.
These shoes inspire a number of influences in my mind from wings to Greek mythology to the vague resemblance of a mohawk hairstyle. What I enjoy about these is the incredible design that went into them, making them an unexpected shoe. Personally I might be squealing if I just got to try them on! However, upon viewing the runway shots of the shoe head on, I am a bit disappointed at their rather ordinary quality from the front. They’re still eye-catching anyway and just appear as an interesting boot from the front. The colors are great too which always helps the appeal of the shoe.
United Nude has a tendency to create the most unusual, surprising shoes. Well more than a tendency, a mission. I love seeing the result of their collaborations with outside designers and can’t wait to see what comes out of these projects next!
