Sculptural shoe brand United Nude launches its New York flagship on Bond Street today. The brand was founded by Dutch architect Rem D Koolhaas (nephew of starchitect Rem Koolhaas, who designed the Prada flagship in New York), resulting in some towering, precariously artsy heels. The moodily lit, so-called “dark-shop” is a replica of the company’s Amsterdam flagship, with the shoes displayed around the perimeter of the space in glowing, back-lit frames. Though United Nude has an existing franchise store on Elizabeth Street, the new digs stock nine exclusive styles. One other feature worth ogling: the gleaming, Batmobile-like Lamborghini, shipped from China and parked in the middle of the store.
