Most of the buzz lately surrounding footwear brand Stuart Weitzman has been the SS18 ad campaign.
The campaign has made fashion history by featuring Gigi Hadid and Kate Moss, photographed together for the very first time. Shot by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino, the images capture two iconic supermodels embodying the brand’s multi-generational appeal while showcasing the essential silhouettes of the season.
I, of course, wanted to get a first hand peek at the collection so I popped over to the Stuart Weitzman boutique at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and it’s even better than I imagined.
The Stuart Weitzman SS18 Collection marks Creative Director Giovanni Morelli’s second collection with the brand. Morelli is the first person other than Mr. Weitzman himself to helm the accessories brand in its 32-year history.
For me it’s the beginning of an exciting new era for Stuart Weitzman. Still holding true to their iconic classic style yet in an updated, refreshed and refined way.
The collection was inspired by the architectural sensibility of sensual curves and focuses on texture and details. Curve details make a showing in everything from heels to straps, hardware and silhouettes.
Opulent satins, buttery nappas, suedes, exotic snakeskin and crystal embellishments highlight texture and flow effortlessly through the collection creating unusual pairings that are works of art- like the satin straps on the Botanical Jacquard pieces. Two fabrics that on paper don’t work but when brought together on a shoe are pure summer magic!
Floral details are a recurring motif throughout the collection blossoming in every category from edgy metallic rose stud details on slides to pretty ladylike hand painted florals on python pointy toes and sandals. How gorgeous are these!
Bold Vibrant Color is key for S/S 2018 and there is no shortage of that in this collection. There is an entire wall dedicated to the season’s hottest love story: Pink and red.
..and then it was love at first sight. My handbag loving heart skipped a beat when my eyes met this beauty, The Petite Harness.
Crafted from satin it’s a modernist take on the backpack. It features a foldover compartment with an interior pocket. Its front satin sash is detachable. Wear it with a gown for luxe contrast or pair with trousers for a street-wear chic vibe. The styling possibilities with this unique beauty are endless!
There is so much more to see in this fantastic collection. Check it out for yourself at the Stuart Weitzman Boutique at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.
