August 8, 2013 Manila, Philippines – Stuart Weitzman opens its flagship store at SM Aura Premier. Stuart Weitzman, the King of Boots, has become synonymous with fashion and function.His stylish designer shoes are adored by celebrities and shoppers around the globe.
Stuart Weitzman Fall/Winter 2013 Collection
Known for his sexy stilettos and evening sandal designs, Stuart Weitzman store at SM Aura Premier offers the full collection including boots, career, flats and weather. Stuart Weitzman understands that a great shoe is more than form or function; it’s about making a woman feel beautiful. For more than 25 years, his designs have garnered a very loyal customer base as accessible luxury footwear with great fit, style, and comfort.
Designer Stuart Weitzman said, “Manila is one of Asia's most beautiful cities whose women have sought out our shoes in their worldwide travels. I'm excited to launch my first boutique to showcase the complete range of Stuart Weitzman designs within our own retail environment. Filipinas will enjoy and embrace the Stuart Weitzman brand as we get to know one another.”
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Stuart Weitzman’s iconic 5050 – a personal favorite of Angelina Jolie.
Thus, the boots will take center stage in the Fall/Winter 2013 global ad campaign, and will feature the legendary Kate Moss, captured by Mario Testino. The creative strategy, especially the continuing visual vocabulary of black and white photography, plays on the concept that Stuart Weitzman’s is the first thing a woman puts on in the morning and the last thing she takes off at night. Yet, the styling will take a different turn – minimalist in concept but with an edgy aesthetic that mirrors Moss’s effortless signature look, which has catapulted her to international style.
The Stuart Weitzman store at SM Aura highlights modern spaces with vanilla and gray tones to showcase Stuart Weitzman’s shoes and handbags. The up-to-date retail concept presents the iconic Stuart Weitzman interior ribbon design, as well as its unique mosaic tile accent wall, and Alphano grey stone floors.
The Stuart Weitzman brand has a fashionable global presence with retail stores in the United States, Italy, Singapore, France, China, Malaysia, Middle East, Indonesia, Australia, Hong Kong, Greece, Mexico, India, Spain, Monaco, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Russia, and now in the Philippines.
