The Label Shoe by United Nude: making fun of fashion victims

Can you guess which designer collaborated with United Nude on the creation of this shoe, readers? Why yes, it WAS Antoine Peters! What gave it away?

Don’t worry, though: it’s not what it looks like. The Label Shoe, as it’s appropriately called, is actually intended to poke fun at those who love to wear visible labels all over their clothes and accessories. Does it work? Well, irony doesn’t always come across too well in clothing, and if you’re not careful it can be oh-so-easy to be mistaken for that which you mock, so we think it would take a brave soul to try and pull these off…

Could you do it? Would you want to? If you do, you can buy them at United Nude, where they’re £170.

    Call me crazy, but I prefer my shoes to be irony-free.

    Irony aside, I would worry about the loose labels catching on things and ripping or tripping me. Shoes should not have dangly bits.

    I like that it’s yellow and black but it reminds me of those crime scenes stuff.

      Perhaps that’s intentional – marking the scene of the fashion-victim crime… 😉
