Iris Van Herpen took inspiration from the world of microscopic organisms. Translation: flower shoe. Titled “Thorn.”
This is the sixth collaboration shoe with United Nude.
Complementing van Herpen’s creations, the shoes combine liquid slow molded uppers and sharp-spiked stones with a whapping 19cm heel and hidden platform. The spikes, made of hand cut stones such as Labradorite, Tiger’s Eye, Leopard Jasper and Moss Agate, pierce through the upper between the platform and heel, creating a semi-precious arch of thorns that form the focal point of this ferocious bootie. “Thorn” will be produced in very limited numbers in various colors, such as glossy nude, glossy black and matt black.
Iris considers fashion as a form of self-expression. Her garments are clear artistic statements that are fused with highly detailed craftsmanship and innovative techniques that define her state of mind. Her exceptional combinations create a sculptured effect and have an astonishing visual impact. It is no surprise that Björk and Lady Gaga are part of her devoted clientele.
Rem D Koolhaas, Founder and Creative Director of United Nude said: “Creating new shoes with Iris is a greater challenge each time. The new shoes have to be better than the previous and the techniques used for making them advance. We race against the clock and fly people all over the world to get the shoes to Paris. The excitement to see her show is something we live up to a long time in advance and is one of our most proud artistic highlights of the year.”
How to wear this statement shoe? Lots of leg, a touch of lip color and top if off with sheer.
Hey boys, I want you both, I hope that’s cool wit you…

Hey Little Monsters,
I’m in love with Lady Gaga. She is so empowering and I love hearing her speak in interviews- she’s brilliant. This week it’s been Lady Gaga overload- she was the guest editor for Metro newspaper on May 17th, and she’ll be on Etalk on May 23. She has released another smash hit called “Hair” and I wanted to share with all you. What do you think about her new single?? Will it be a hit??
So here is Gaga’s new song/video. I’m in love with the fashion as I always have loved her fashion. She’s amazing and I think a talented person. I think she pushes the envelope in order to get the audience to think out side the box.. With that said the meaning of this song is for all the men that backstabbed Gaga and this is from the Mother Monster herself.
What do you readers think of the new video?? Is it too much?? Or just right??
OK little monsters..are you ready??!!
Superstar Lady Gaga has joined forces with E! to unveil the world premiere of her latest – and perhaps most talked about – music video for her upcoming single “Judas.”
Its going to air in its entirety on E! NEWS on TONIGHT @ 7 p.m on E!
And tomorrow there will be an exclusive and revealing interview with Lady Gaga on Friday, May 6 at 7 p.m on E! NEWS.
Hope you are excited for the originality, creativity and crazy that is Lady Gaga.
