Stuart Weitzman is on a journey to evolve from a shoe company into a global multi-category accessories brand. The brand will produce innovative accessories based on a foundation of wardrobe essentials that foster an emotional connection with women of all ages. The goal is to establish Stuart Weitzman as the accessories destination for every woman for every occasion.
With an already stellar reputation for boots and the iconic Nudist sandal, Stuart Weitzman will broaden its offering of footwear essentials within categories like flats, pumps, sandals, loafers and sneakers. A multi-generational luxury brand built upon the idea of creating a beautifully constructed shoe, its unique point of difference has been merging fashion and function while inspiring desire and demand. Through a carefully engineered process, every pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes is designed to achieve the perfect fit in sizes 4 to 12 and in four widths. The Stretch — an integral part of the Stuart Weitzman design DNA — will continue to evolve. The Stretch fabrication is simultaneously utilitarian and aesthetic for ease of wearability and effortless style; this signature construction will take on an expanded and elevated role in the coming collections and will be crafted from unusual materials, including exotics.
In tandem with the launch of Fall 2018, Stuart Weitzman will introduce new handbag and costume jewelry collections, increasing the opportunity for women to accessorize with essentials from the brand. The handbags will be powerful silhouettes with a distinct point of view. The 10 styles, ranging in shape from hobo to tote to clutch, are intended to be authentic, personal accents to a woman’s wardrobe. Stuart Weitzman views jewelry as a natural extension of a woman and therefore an organic evolution and expansion opportunity for the brand. The modern yet feminine 10-piece collection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings is made up of architectural, wearable objects intended to be simultaneously energizing and effortless.
Stuart Weitzman has become synonymous with red carpet styles and its shoes have been worn by A-list celebrities around the globe. The brand plans to evolve this glamorous aspect of its image by further focusing on embellishments, specifically hardware ornamentation. The metal hardware is imbued with a unique balance of femininity and sculptural artistry. It will be a focal point throughout the collection and across all product categories, establishing a consistent visual vocabulary and design point-of-view for the brand both on and off the red carpet.
For over 30 years, the luxury brand has been creating footwear in Elda, Spain and the area’s surrounding region. With its modern design approach, Stuart Weitzman is proud of its expertise and craftsmanship associated with the “Made in Spain” label.
