The awe-inspiring collaboration of talented fashion designer with innovative footwear brand just cannot go wrong especially when we think about the fusion of fashion and art in a wearable manner. Following the example of fruitful collaboration such as Iris van Herpen with United Nude served for the 5th time, there is a great scope for amazement in fashion going much further than just chic attributes and stylish manner of dress code.
When Iris van Herpen joins the forces with United Nude, we are introduced into the symbiosis of art, technology and design that clearly follow fashion aesthetics as well. The fifth collaboration of this talented designer with ultra modern shoe brand resulted in a FANG model. The design features the composition of 10 sharp teeth on the platform of each shoe. Maintained in a wedge convention, the model is crafted from fiberglass and carbon fiber constructed in a slow molding process.
The design of the shoes pursues peculiar yet captivating concept of the collection highly influenced by the scientific photography by Steve Gschmeissner. Transferring the vision of microscopic species into the garment code, Iris created breathtaking collection of sculptural pieces that perfectly accompany with the FANG shoe model. It was also a perfect occasion to display unique signature of Iris van Herpen. The collection for Spring/Summer 2012 season was presented in Paris where the designer was invited as an official guest of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture for the second time.
