Luxury shoe brand Stuart Weitzman stepped into New York Fashion Week for the first time with a brand new creative director who added chunkier heels designed for comfort to the brand’s signature collection of sky high heels and boots.
Opening NYFW last, week, the Weitzman show on Thursday featured the first collection of the brand's new creative director, Giovanni Morelli, the first to succeed the brand’s namesake who stepped down last year, had his eyes firmly on the fashion.
“We believe in the casualization of the shoes,” Morelli said. “I really believe very firmly that our brand should have different kind of shoes for different kind of women.”
Under Morelli’s direction, the high-end footwear company, which is owned by Tapestry Inc, is expanding into more casual flats, sandals, loafers and sneakers.
“We’re not the kind of brand that believes only in the high heel,” Morelli said.
