Stuart Weitzman Expands Collection Under New Creative Director, Giovanni Morelli

Stuart Weitzman has gained significant notoriety as the go-to choice for the strappy sandal—the iconic “Nudist”—and for the over-the-knee boot. But the New York-based shoe brand—with celebrity spokespeople Gigi Hadid and Kate Moss—is really about to kick it up a notch, not just with its shoe offering, but also with a new and diverse line of accessories.

Under new Creative Director, Giovanni Morelli, fans of the brand can still expect to find a wide selection of gorgeous, wearable and on-trend sandals, sneakers, loafers, pumps and flats. For instance, the new SW-612 sneaker, made from suede, touts a “sock-like construction and unique, contrasting sole, which can be folded in half for easy packing,” while the Lexy combat boot, with “a lug sole…is finished with wraparound laces on a noticeably streamlined silhouette.”

Additionally, in his debut Fall 2018 collection, Morelli will introduce a line of handbags and costume jewelry. One of the handbag styles, called the Shoebox, actually reflects the Stuart Weitzman shoe packaging—from which Morelli drew inspiration. In the collection, he will also introduce a signature shade called “blue violet,” which can be found on anything and everything SW, including on shoe insoles, brand packaging and inside each boutique. “Blue violet is an element we can play with in an endless way,” said Morelli.

Morelli also plans to feature more embellishments on his designs, via metal hardware like chains, knots and geometric-inspired adornments, drawing from the glitz and glam that Stuart Weitzman fans have come to know and love about the brand.
