UNITED NUDE, founded by architect Rem D Koolhaas and seventh generation shoemaker Galahad Clark opened their first standalone UK store in London's Covent Garden on 20th July, 2011.
The characteristics of the brand's products and DNA are also evident in the interior design of the Floral Street store designed by Creative Director and Architect Rem D Koolhaas. The store located on 13 Floral Street uses the classic UNITED NUDE "dark-shop" concept where the store is darkened out and product is showcased and highlighted using "The Wall of Light", a computer LED wall displaying UNITED NUDE products as works of art encapsulated by geometric frames.
From injection-molded shoes to high-end carbon fibre heels, UNITED NUDE is a brand founded on conceptual design, elegance and innovation. Along with the brand's current collection, the store offers a chance to view elements of UNITED NUDE's Lo Res project with mock ups of the Lamborghini's produced for the project and the newly released Lo Res chair.
Fashion house Givenchy introduces the "Panther" collection, featuring signature VGV 782 specs. These gorgeous cat eye glasses are feminine, yet edgy, and features embellishment on the temple. I love these, check them out!
Mmmm, now which colour to choose ....

|The United Nude Haiku, meaning a short Japanese 3 phrase poem, is like its name a few elements that meet to express emotion. The simple and straight lines together form a harmonious and beautiful shoe.|
UNITED NUDE SS11 introduces a stylish collection of shoes in shades of black, nude and white ... check them out!
|The United Nude Abstract is a dramatically high heel with a platform base. Wood blocks that form the heel are connected in a very rustic and abstract way to form a balanced composition. It's a piece of art!|

Leaving a successful corporate Marketing career behind her, JOANNA MAXHAM did what we all dream of doing ... be bold enough to follow our dream.
Maxham yearned a creative change, so in 2007 she took the plunge and embraced her fascination for the wonderful world of F-A-S-H-I-O-N!
Her initial foray into this area was experimenting with fashion accessories such as jewellery and scarves before finding her true calling after designing her first handbag.

|Arm Candy in Simple Black|
Joanna's goal was to create handbags of perfect proportions, made from the finest leather, and with great attention to detail. Maxham chose to collaborate with a small, European atelier with over 35 years of experience; this intimate setting of traditional craftsmanship played an integral role in bringing to life and nurturing her vision. The result? A luxurious combination of style and utility now now known as JOANNA MAXHAM handbag.

Inspired by 70's vintage + organic shapes, JOANNA MAXHAM HANDBAGS feature coveted styles while effortlessly infusing luxury into everyday functionality.
Made from soft vegetable tanned Italian leather, Maxham's Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection comes in an understated palette + displays a beautiful + contemporary aesthetic.

The latest from LowLuv sees Wasson draw on symbolism from various cultures, from Native American to Middle Eastern. The Evil Eye features on stacked rings and bangles, which, according to Erin:
mean many different things according to how and which culture you look at ... I usually design what I find interesting and powerful ... I want pieces that look intense and have meaning.
Music played a part in her process, too, especially the late Egyptian-born singer Oum Kalthoum, the so-called Star of the East.
Wasson's hammered rings, chandelier earrings, and crosses studded with rough crystals and black agates are flashy enough for the ruler of the empire - or, paired with Wasson's usual outfit of cut offs & vintage tees, for the model off duty look.

We were inspired by the Mods and the Beatniks of the late 50's & early 60's, channeling a clean and tidy aesthetic through neat satchels, sweet pumps and classic jewellery. - Mimco Creative and Commercial Director - Cathryn Wills
MIMCO's inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2011 Collection - WHISPERS & ANARCHY - is a fusion of the street style of the late 50's & early 60's.
