UPDATE 25/9: Gigi Hadid has unveiled the boots that she designed with Stuart Weitzman.
Having worked with the brand as a campaign star for the past two seasons, the model has created a heeled ankle boot style. The lace-up boots – which are priced between £460 to £498 – come in three colour ways – metallic silver, copper and croc-embossed leather.
“This experience has been such a thrill, from choosing the style to selecting materials to creating the signature box. I am so excited to finally share these boots and be able to wear them myself,” said Hadid.
To celebrate the collaboration, James Franco was hired to create a promotional film starring Hadid in her boxing gear.
WWD reports that sales of the boots will donated to charity Pencils of Promise and Weitzman has pledged to build three schools – in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better way to further my partnership with Stuart Weitzman than to get creative, and am so happy to know the boots I designed will be helping kids through the non-profit organisation, Pencils of Promise. I’m truly proud of this collaboration from all angles,” said Hadid.
