Before heading to Thursday’s Obesity and Speed event at OAK, I decided to kill some time on the other side of Bond Street. Initially attracted by the combination of structural décor, open space, and mood-morphing LCD backlights, my ultimate surrender to United Nude was a result of an architectural wedge catching my peripheral vision.
Not yet altered by the evening’s impending beverages, I entered the brand’s self-described “dark-shop” in complete amazement, despite past encounters on this block. This location, after all, will be reaching its one-year anniversary this month.
I asked the attentive sales associate which shoes had been generating the most attention. She pointed towards a pair of fully-laced booties that just grazed $1,000. And like a Fashion Week crasher is drawn to swag, I was immediately hooked.
