Gigi Hadid is unstoppable! She has gone from one of the world’s most famous supermodel to fashion designer over night and we love it! Her latest venture was just unveiled and it’s amazing. Stuart Weitzman has collaborated with Gigi, the face of the Fall 2016 ad campaign, on an exclusive design for the brand — the Gigi Boot, & you can SHOP it right here!
This is some seriously amazing news! Gigi, 21, has collaborated with Stuart Weitzman to create an amazing shoe — the Gigi Boot. The hiker-inspired high heel combat bootie was co-designed by the supermodel and reflects her sleek street style and fashion-forward flair.
A little bit about the Gigi Boot, is that, it’s “set on a stacked heel, boasts bold metallic eyelets accented by duo-toned laces designed to wrap around the ankle and is finished with a detailed collar. The bootie is available in three materials, so there are multiple options for her style squad: a classic-yet-modern nero soft croco-calf leather and two shiny chic metallics, including iron specchio and copper glass. The bootie comes in a signature Gigi Hadid box and is available exclusively at Stuart Weitzman retail locations and global websites. The retail price is $565 for the metallic styles and $598 for the nero soft croco-calf version.”
Her design is a celebration of the brand’s partnership with Pencils of Promise, a financial commitment this fall 2016 season to build three schools: one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos. With a focus on creating quality elementary education programs within the rural regions of developing nations, the Stuart Weitzman and PoP partnership takes a step closer to the vision that every child has the basic right to education.
“Hadid was inspired by the brand’s stellar boot reputation, but used her creative vision to put a unique, personal spin on the lace-up bootie silhouette.” Gigi couldn’t contain her excitement, saying, “I am so excited to finally share these boots and be able to wear them myself…and so happy to know they will be helping kids through Pencils of Promise.”
Not only are we obsessed with Gigi’s new shoe, but she also stars in a short film directed by James Franco, titled ‘#doitright,’ and it’s the official kick off to the Gigi Boot’s global retail debut on http://www.stuartweitzman.com. The video was shot at Gleason’s Gym, in Brooklyn, NY, and “the dynamic film features Gigi as “the champ,” as she jabs and moves around the boxing ring, dominating every opponent – all while wearing the Gigi Boot. Art imitates life in the film, as the boxing concept was inspired by Hadid’s real-life workout regimen – and, like the global advertising campaign, it captures her power, agility and gracefulness. The energetic visuals are enhanced by the upbeat soundtrack “Do It Right” by Martin Solveig and Tkay Maidza.”
I mean seriously, is there anything Gigi can’t do? She is a triple-threat! What do you guys think of this amazing new campaign video & the shoes? Are you as obsessed as we are?
