Stuart Weitzman Readies SW1 | Designer’s New High-End Footwear & Handbags

Posted on: Feb 6

Stuart Weitzman SW1 LabelWhile many designers are creating affordable diffusion collections for major department stores, Stuart Weitzman is bucking the trend. He's preparing to launch a high-class accessories line called SW1.

The collection's footwear will range from $595 for a pair of satin or suede pumps to $995 for some luxurious boots. That's a real mark-up on the $300 we usually pay for the designer's kitten heels.

If you hoped to save money on the handbags you'll be sorely disappointed. Most are even more expensive than the shoes, with prices ranging from $800 to $1500. The line looks to offer something for everybody with its muted pastels, earthy neutrals, and jewel colored exotic skins. The rainbow of colors is complemented by a diverse selection of shapes. There are totes and satchels for everyday, tablet cases for the office, and clutches and minaudieres for nights on the town.

We're used to seeing Stuart Weitzman as a mid-priced designer, so it'll be interesting to see how his fans respond to his more luxurious creations. Do you think they'll embrace the new line, or be turned off by the price hikes?

A high-end line calls for some more exclusive stockists. While retailers in the United States have not been confirmed, Brits will find the SW1 goods in Selfridges while Canadians can shop for them at Holt Renfrew.
