Model Gigi Hadid and designer Stuart Weitzman has collaborated once again in time for the holiday season with two exclusive footwear styles – the EYELOVE and the EYELOVEMORE.
The pointed-toe mules were the first project for Stuart Weitzman’s new creative director Giovanni Morelli; he and Hadid modified an existing brand silhouette to reflect her sleek style and strong affinity for the mule.
Hadid was inspired by her personal connection to the mystical symbol the “evil eye.”
The EYELOVE, available in ballet suede and deep indigo suede, showcases her minimalistic design aesthetic with one “evil eye” symbol on just the right foot of each silhouette. The EYELOVEMORE, available in frosted suede, illustrates her playfulness with its bold multi-eye pattern on both shoes.
“I’ve really been into slides lately and wanted a pair that can take me into fall…no more cold toes! The evil eye is a powerful symbol meant to protect those who wear it from negative energies. It’s emotionally comforting and beautiful and captivating to look at,” Hadid said.
“The bright colors are fun and remind me why we designed these shoes — they represent our commitment to build three additional schools with Pencils of Promise. Look Good, Do Good.”
Packaged in a signature Gigi Hadid box with a matching dust bag, the mules are available exclusively at Stuart Weitzman retail locations and global websites as well as Moda Operandi and Lane Crawford. Stuart Weitzman’s Soho boutique also transformed into a Gigi Mule Pop-Up Shop for limited time starting November 15th.
The retail price is $498 for the EYELOVE and $598 for the EYELOVEMORE.
