Gigi Hadid is transformed in Stuart Weitzman’s Fall/Winter 2017 campaign

Stuart Weitzman’s Fall/Winter 2017 advertising campaign features Gigi Hadid and demonstrates once again the power behind this pairing. Shot by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino, the stunning black-and-white images emphasize Stuart Weitzman’s visual vocabulary and showcase the essential silhouettes for the season.

Gigi takes on a whole new look, capped in a fabulous Shay Ashual wig that obscures her famed tousled golden locks and will have people asking: did she or didn’t she? Gigi’s stylish faux-pixie, inspired by Jean Seberg’s character in the 1960’s French movie classic “Breathless,” puts a chic and modern twist on her fourth consecutive Stuart Weitzman campaign. The deconstructed styling provides a sharp contrast to the sleek iconic stretch over-the-knee TIEMODEL boot and CLING ankle boot.

Stuart Weitzman Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

The international advertising campaign will launch in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. A behind-the-scenes video and additional creative content will be featured on www.stuartweitzman.com and in Stuart Weitzman boutiques worldwide.

Stuart Weitzman steps boldly into the Fall/Winter 2017 season with a collection of dazzling designs in luxe materials and rich hues. High-shine patent, multicolored fur, buttery-soft calf leather, embellished knits and iridescent glitter are the textures of the season, while sexy and sophisticated silhouettes, including the classic kitten heel, sleek over-the-knee boots, menswear-inspired oxfords and wear-everywhere booties, stay true to the brand’s visual vocabulary and are recharged with new, statement-making details. The collection is a flawless and fearless offering of styles that are at once trendsetting and easy to wear.

Red is the color of the season…in shades of scarlet, crimson and cherry. Full-stretch boots remain a fall favorite: The TIEMODEL over-the-knee is crafted in cherry red stretch leather and perched on a Mod-inspired kitten heel. Next up, the new must-have sock bootie, the CLINGY – available in punchy red patent – is finished with a pointed toe and a cool kitten heel. The ALLHYPED just-over-the-knee boot is red-hot: It pairs a slightly taller front shaft – inspired by the iconic 5050 – with a stretch patent back. A slim block heel further distinguishes this standout style.

The ’80s-inspired scrunch boot makes a triumphant return to the fashion scene this season and gets an update with artful heel shapes and ultra-modern materials. The knee-high SCRUNCHY boot sparkles and shines in eye-catching pyrite nocturn and silver noir; it is finished with a geometric block heel and an effortless, gathered shaft. Its ankle-grazing counterpart, the CRUSH (available cherry red and midnight black), is equally streamlined and slouchy. Meanwhile, the chic city slicker will gravitate towards the flat version of this showstopping silhouette, the FLATSCRUNCHY: This urban essential is both rugged and refined when crafted in supple nappa.

Stuart Weitzman is known for merging fashion with fit and function, and the LONGLEGS, a sock-inspired knee-high boot, taps into the brand’s DNA with its gem-embellished knit shaft, which has been engineered for a flattering fit and warmth. This chic showpiece is set on a tonal, straight block heel and punctuated with a coordinating cap-toe design.

Fantastic fur accents in vivid hues inject an eclectic appeal into understated silhouettes. Look cool while staying warm in the rainbow fur-trimmed FURGETIT mule, which is finished with an almond toe and a flat, stacked wooden heel. The OVERCOAT mid-calf boot receives an après-ski update with colorful Mongolian lamb hair cascading from the collar.

This season’s menswear-inspired silhouettes borrow from the boys, but are finished with feminine flourishes by way of high fashion patent leather and elegant pearl adornments. The MRSPATS, bedecked with coordinating pearl-inspired embellishments, is the perfect complement to any look, whether deliberately juxtaposed with a floaty dress or matched with tailored trousers. The MOCPEARL melds a classic uptown silhouette with downtown defiance by way of a bold lug sole. This lust-worthy loafer features a faux pearl-encrusted vamp detail and is available in bone and jet black patent leather for extra shine.
