Lord Of The Shoes Stuart Weitzman by Dijana Zeravica interview by Klaudia Ciszonek photographed by Wolf Steiner STUART WEITZMAN SANDALS NUDIST €375,00 56 | loveFMD.com
Nearly every woman loves shoes – that’s a fact – and to own a shoe pair designed by the fabulous Stuart Weitzman is a dream for all shoe lovers worldwide. Stuart Weitzman is the designer of the world-renowned shoe company that bears his name. ‘The grand master of shoe design ‘ gave the FMD a special interview, in which he speaks about the relationship with his father, the recent campaign, trends for 2015 and his plans for the future. The designer, who was born in 1932, started in his twenties to design shoes for his father, Seymour Weitzman, who owned the shoe factory “Seymour Shoes”. Seymour Weitzman past away in 1965 and Stuart and his older brother Warren took over the family business. In 1972 the brothers sold the business to a company in Spain but Stuart continued to design shoes for the company. In 1994 Stuart Weitzman bought the business back, leaving the manufacturing process in Spain. This is the summarized history of the today´s brand “Stuart Weitzman”. What makes a Stuart Weitzman shoe special? The answer to this question is easy! Each pair of shoes is a marvel of design, engineering and craftsmanship. The materials utilized are unique and sometimes deviate from recent standards of design. Just to name a few: cork, vinyl and even 24-karat gold, thus we found one more reason to buy and love products of this high-end shoe company, beside the exclusive design of course. More than one hundred hand movements go into every pair and it takes 6-7 weeks to fabricate a pair. You can imagine and see what composes the quality and the price of this high-class brand. Every year, Weitzman designs a new and high-class pair of “million-dollar shoes” - containing his most exclusive designs. The current collection is presented by no one less than Gisele Bündchen. The Brazilian beauty replaces Kate Moss as the New Face of Stuart Weitzman for this season. In an interview with the WWD Weitzman said: “Gisele is such a seasoned professional, she exemplifies the Stuart Weitzman woman with her zest of life, love and family.” Stuart Weitzman’s shoes are available in over 70 countries across the world which shows the high demand and popularity of his classy label. We’re very pleased and thankful to Mr. Weitzman for the interview he gave us! Enjoy this legendary grand master. 57 | loveFMD.com
