STUART WEITZMAN COLLABORATES WITH DISNEY RELEASES A LIMITED-EDITION CAPSULE COLLECTION INSPIRED BY BOTH BRANDS’ MOST ICONIC SILHOUETTES
There’s magic in the air at Stuart Weitzman.
Stuart Weitzman announces a collaboration with Disney with the launch of the limited-edition Disney x Stuart Weitzman Capsule Collection for the Fall 2022 season. The collection marks Stuart Weitzman’s first global collaboration. It brings together each brand’s most iconic silhouettes — Disney’s world- renowned characters, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, and Stuart Weitzman’s globally recognized footwear styles — to create a collection designed to delight both Disney fans and shoe lovers alike.
“I was so inspired by the idea of combining icons,” says Stuart Weitzman Head of Design Edmundo
Castillo. “We wanted to take some of our most iconic styles with inspiration from Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, and make them sparkle like Disney’s most classic stars”
A celebration of icons, the fantastical Magic at the Movies campaign combines the nostalgia of Disney’s rich cinematic history with the glamour of Stuart Weitzman’s red-carpet legacy. The campaign was filmed at the renowned Village East by Angelika and stars iconic American supermodel Lindsey Wixon with special appearances by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse themselves.
The resulting capsule melds the everyday magic of Disney’s beloved universe with the modern glamour of Stuart Weitzman’s special occasion styles. This is best portrayed by a luxe new Swarovski-crystal embellished motif in the shape of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse’s silhouettes concepted by Castillo and applied to a range of boots, booties, loafers, sandals and sneakers. Each look is designed to inspire the woman wearing it to feel a little more special, elegant, glamorous — and ultimately, a little more magical. This notion speaks to the shared values of both brands: For Stuart Weitzman, to be driven by the purpose of inspiring women to feel confident, strong and powerful, so they can truly achieve anything; and for Disney to inspire the world to dream big — and to believe that dreams do come true.
The capsule includes the following styles, each meticulously crafted by artisans in Spain and delivered in a collectible shoebox exclusive to the capsule:
• DISNEY X STUART WEITZMAN NUDISTCURVE SANDAL: Our iconic red-carpet sandal is reinterpreted with matching Swarovski crystal-embellished Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse motifs on the back counter of each shoe.
