Her work brilliantly trapezes between extreme technical mastery and experimental innovation. Known for her shockingly intricate designs made possible only with a level of expertise required for couture creations, United Nude creative director Rem D Koolhaas met Herpen in 2010 and immediately suggested a collaboration.
