Just in: Stuart Weitzman has a new Creative Director
Morelli in, Weitzman out
The fashion designer behind the eponymous American label, Stuart Weitzman, is stepping down from his position as Creative Director and taking up the role of Executive Chairman instead. Known for his iconic signature Nudist heels – which was recently redesigned exclusively for the Middle East – Weitzman's newly appointed successor will be Giovanni Morelli, who was previously at Spanish luxury label Loewe. Morelli, was also the former accessories designer at Prada, Marc Jacobs, Chloé and Burberry, but will now channel his unique craftsmanship at the helm of the nearly 30-year old brand from May 5, 2017.
Earlier this year, the brand tapped Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge and Joan Smalls as the faces of the Stuart Weitzman Spring 2016 campaign.
