The Art of Fashion

I have always had a love for designers who constantly do the unexpected and Iris van Herpen is one designer who undoubtably does that.  Since launching her label in 2007, Dutch fashion designer Van Herpen has become one of the most talked about names in the fashion industry to date. Known for her innovative creations and super extravagant style, van Herpen pushes the limits of creativity with her interesting use materials.

Van Harpen collaborates with United Nude to present their 6th architectural shoe collaboration  for her  haute couture collections. So I thought I would show you all just how amazingggGGGGGG this shoe collaboration and their archive is. Every time I see these shoes (not to mention every single collection Van Harpen has ever done) I stare at them in ore and amazement. Check em out yo!!!

First up we have CARIOLE

All footwear for Iris van Herpen’s show was created in collaboration with United Nude. The designs were so intensely conceptual, that production was limited to the four catwalk pairs only!! Imagine trying to walk in those bad boys!!!

Next  up we have BEYOND WILDERNESS

No matter what!! Iris van Herpen’s designs consistantly demonstrate fashion as art. Her creations are clear artistic statements which women can express their unique character. I’m such a fan of the whole thought process that goes in to creating something as unique as this.
