Gigi Hadid has designed her second range of footwear in collaboration with Stuart Weitzman. Following on from last year’s lace-up boot, the model has now turned her attention to the trusty mule.
The pointed-toe slip on was the first project for the brand’s new creative director Giovanni Morelli, who worked closely with Hadid to modify the style to reflect her own fashion sensibility. Hadid’s version incorporates her personal fascination with the mystic symbol of the “evil eye”.
The new collaboration features two styles – the EyeLove (in ballet and deep indigo suede, with one eye motif) and the EyeLoveMore (in frosted grey suede with multiple eyes) – each lined with shearling.
As with the model’s previous design partnership with Weitzman, this collection has a charitable aspect; these mules are a celebration of the designer’s ongoing relationship with non-profit organisation Pencils of Promise – which aims to increase educational opportunities in the developing world – and its financial commitment of $105,000 to build an additional three schools this year: one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.
To celebrate the launch of the collection, Stuart Weitzman’s Soho boutique will transform into a Gigi mule pop-up shop for a limited time from today (15 November).
