A must-have from the Colors of California collection is the super stylish Wellington boot range in bold colours and a contrasting zip.
What looks like a Bang & Olufsen phone, is actually the latest fashion craze from contemporary footwear brand United Nude and Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen. The futuristic boots, named Biopiracy are definitely only for those who want to be centre of attention. The Biopiracy shoes were one of the most striking pieces at the press day and are available for pre-order in boot and ankle bootie styles from the United Nude online shop.
