Since the very first feature we did with Zaha Hadid in KA Magazine Vol. 2, we were looking forward to the day when the revolutionary Architect would collaborate on anything fashion! Since they met years ago, United Nude’s Creative director Rem D’Koolhaas and Zaha Hadid have been talking about shoes, and now – the dream how now been made a reality. On July 2nd, United Nude announced it’s new limited edition haute couture show designed by Zaha Hadid which was launched at the iconic store L’eclaireur, 40 rue de Sévigné, Paris.
“United Nude’s collections are provocative yet sensual. Rem D Koolhaas’ unrelenting experimentation at the cutting edge of fashion never fails to capture our imagination.” explains Hadid. “I have always appreciated those who dare to experiment with materials and proportions. Our collaboration with United Nude reinterprets the classic shoe typology; pushing the boundaries of what is possible without compromising integrity.”
The NOVA design by Zaha Hadid, incorporates intricate striations juxtaposed with dramatic realignments, establishing a direct formal relationship with the shoe’s primary structure and expressing the dynamic forces applied by every step of the wearer. We love – and looking forward to seeing more collaborations between Zaha Hadid and United Nude.
