Paid a visit to Prudence at her lovely little studio in central London. The hand-crafted hats displayed around the room were to die for. Seeing designs made for Vogue, Vivienne Westwood, Tom Ford, Sex in the City, and more, left me in awe. I could not believe my eyes! A lovely gifted woman, and a true artist of her work.

United Nude is a shoe retailing company founded by Rem D. Koolhaas and Galahad Clark. The story of how this company came about was derived from the broken heart of Koolhaas. His concept was to downsize the architecture to its smallest and most vulnerable scale, that of a woman’s foot. He drew inspiration from the 'Möbius' shoe and took it a step further. Galahad Clark is the seventh dynasty of the Clark’s shoe making company. Together they created United Nude. The concept of United Nude sets it apart from the rest. It is designed in a specific way that is functional and unique. Aside from the brilliant use of colors, the architectural design in the heel is even more recognized for of its shape, form, and space. Additional to that, the displays that lay inside the shops contain shelves that are backlit with constantly color-changing lighting which draws attention into the store. From afar, the visual impact is certainly identifiable and is very luring to the eye. The idea of United Nude is nothing but a clever spectacle! Check ‘em out!
