New York-based shoe designer Stuart Weitzman joined creative forces with accessories guru Alvaro Gonzalez to produce a pricier line of footwear and handbags for Weitzman’s high end retailers this fall — including Neiman Marcus and others. Going against the grain of lower-priced diffusion lines, the SW1 collection (not to be confused with the posh London neighborhood) includes shoes ($595-$995) and handbags ($800-$1,500).
The collection’s 50 shoe styles boasts suede, satin, or leather in lush jewel tones (think emerald, ruby, purple, and dark blue). Other details of the line are inspired by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, such as resin heels with a deco-like, mosaic pattern (above). The collection also includes sharply-shaped handbags, from python skin minaudières and buttery soft leather cross body bags in neutral tones to clutches with neon-colored piping.
