Iris van Herpen x United Nude collection, 2014

The Biopiracy collection by Iris Van Herpen emerged from astonishment of companies’ patented human genes.

United Nude collaborates with Iris Van Herpen for shoes completing her collection for its 9th consecutive time. Nevertheless this is the first time that two instead of just one design graced the runway, in the form of the Biopiracy Boot and the Biopiracy peeptoe ankle Bootie, both on staggering 7 inch tall platform cantilevered heels. The Iris Van Herpen × United Nude Boot overrules the natural shape of the foot; this makes the graphically leather molded boots futuristic sculptures extending the legs with a new silhouette into motion.
