NEOUS is a minimalist shoe label started by decade long friends Vanissa Antonious who is a stylist and designer Alan Buanne. When creating the label’s concept, Antonious and Buanne wanted to create a label guided by Bauhaus design principles. Each shoe is made in Italy and sold at a contemporary price point. Calfskin, suede and hand-woven macrame are combined with block heels to make shoes that are truly wearable.
To keep with their “Less is More” ethos the design duo creates minimalist designs by squaring off the toes of a mule silhouette or making the curve of a glove shoe higher than normal. Vanissa Antonious and Alan Buanne also believes in using spartan detailing for their creations by using a gold ring or just a velcro strap for decoration.
Lovers of minimalist fashion found another label to support and that is NEOUS.
