An architect, Rem Koolhaas and 7th generation shoe maker, Galahad Clark teamed up in 2003 to create a a new brand of shoes. Unsurprisingly the creations are not simple shoes – they are very much inspired by architecture and interior design making them the most unique and super desirable shoes currently on the market. Indeed they are so desirable the concept took off immediately: now you can find United Nude store is 40 countries (visit one in Londons’s Covent Garden for a closer look at the brand).
- 90 Degrees Sandals, £405 – they look fragile but feel incredibly strong and apparently extremely comfortable!
- Eamz Pump, £215 – Rem took inspiration from Charles and Ray Eames chair creation, as you do…
- Web Hi, £400 – designers turned to miraculous nature creation spider web for inspiration!
- Flame Rivet, £390 – true architectural fantasy, is it just me or do you see something of a staircase here too?

I always find it hard to find decorative items for my flat that won’t make me sick after a few weeks. When you are around objects all day everyday they need to ‘fit’. Plus if you are young and live in the city, chances are you do not have much space for expressing your identity.
So here is a perfect cardboard moose. First of all you can dress it up any way you like (and store some of your accessories on it when you are out of space). Hence you won’t get bored of it. Secondly it is not just any moose, it is cardboard, which is different and cool. And cool is pretty much the main statement we want to make about ourselves to our guests. And third its ‘green’ (well recycled) so you can feel good about your purchase.
And yes, even though elements of decor are usually not a part of my blog, I just can not help myself but put some really worthy items in. Available from http://www.fashion-conscience.com for £29.
