Pushing the boundaries at Paris Couture Fashion Week, Iris van Herpen introduced her latest intricate designs on models wearing the latest shoe designs for United Nude, shoes titled ‘The Fang’. The Iris van Herpen for United Nude Fang shoe collection features intricate craftsmanship that captures instant attention. Juxtaposing simplicity with extreme sculptural contemporary details, The Fang collection completes the avant-garde style of the fashion designs featured at Iris van Herpen’s spring 2012 couture show.
The world renowned Dutch designer chose to complete the extremely detailed dresses from her latest fashion collection with equally extreme multi-heeled shoes that looked like fangs coming out of the sole of the shoe. The Fang shoes are the fruit of the fifth collaboration of Iris van Herpen with United Nude, and the result is indeed revolutionary. Few designers manage to let go any inhibitions and create new, innovative, shocking but wearable designs, and Iris van Herpen is one of those few designers that manage to surprise and wow the public every time.
The Fang shoes are a mix of simple classic lace-up/zip-up ankle boots with an eccentric sole that features ten sharp teeth looking extensions to each foot. To provide the perfect hold as some of the ‘fangs’ are presented in a slightly curved angle, a special mix of fiberglass and carbon fiber was used in the creation process. The result is simply amazing and the designs will surely manage to find their way to the shoe ‘altar’ of most shoe addicts. Available in various colors such as white, black, beige and burgundy, the new Fang shoes signed Iris van Herpen X United Nude will surely complete any outfit giving the look a spin to a fierce style. Check out the new avant-garde Fang shoes and pick your must haves!
