as part of a massive retail offensive in various cities across europe, united nude launched a pop-up store and exhibition at galeries lafayette in paris. the showcase of the fashion-forward shoe brand pretty much bares it all, from its lo-res project, an innovative design method using computer software to design new products and redesign existing creations, to a selection of its most iconic designs in the past decade and the outrageous collab designs with fashion wunderkind iris van herpen. a pop-up store complements the exhibition, not only carrying the aforementioned dutch designer's limited edition shoes, but also some of united nude’s iconic pieces and a selection of its s/s 2012 collection [open through mar 20]. location: 40 boulevard haussmann [st.-honoré].
