Stuart Weitzman borrows Gigi Hadid's feet — and design chops — for its latest mules

What would you do if you've just been appointed the new creative head of one of the most prestigious shoe houses in the luxury market? If you thought to rope in a name as big as the brand's to front your first campaign, then you have more in common with Giovanni Morelli than you think.

Gigi Hadid, who will be seen all over Stuart Weitzman's fall/winter campaign, isn't just a beautiful face. Playing collaborator to the newly appointed Giovanni Morelli, the supermodel helped design two footwear styles, updating the mule silhouette with a suede upper and shearling lining inside the toe-box. The "evil eye" symbol, dressing just the right foot on both styles is either presented solo or in an argyle pattern featuring five pairs of blinkers named EYELOVE and EYELOVEMORE respectively. The EYELOVE comes in indigo and tan; the EYELOVEMORE, in grey.

Watch the hypnotic short film by Cameron Duddy (he also directed Bruno Mars' '24K Magic') to see the mules in action, then shop them below.

Stuart Weitzman x Gigi Hadid is available at Stuart Weitzman boutiques, Moda Operandi, Lane Crawford and online.
