NEOUS is a new designer brand born from a ten-year
creative friendship between fashion stylist Vanissa
Antonious and designer Alan Buanne.
Inspired by the simple but radical design principles
of the Bauhaus school, the two prize function,
quality, value and ease above all else. Once those
are firmly in place, form follows easily.
NEOUS shoes are designed to fit seamlessly into the modern woman’s life. Crafted on Italian lasts using the technical knowledge Buanne garnered from a classical training in Florence, shoes are comfortable, with architecturally sound block heels and easy elevations. An uncompromising approach to the quality of materials used – supple calfskin, meltingly soft suede, hand woven macramé – will satisfy the needs of the woman who values practicality and provenance as well as style.
By stepping back and stripping back, the NEOUS designers have allowed a bold new minimalist aesthetic to shine. Shapes are simple but inherently striking: the toes of an elegant mule are bluntly squared off; the curve of a glove shoe is cut higher than expected. Further visual twists are explored via confident and vivid colour-play, and vigorously spartan detailing - a perfect gold ring, a subtle Velcro strap - carving out an identity unlike anything else out there today.
Minimalist, pared back, considered.
Less, but more.
