It's been a year since Gigi Hadid and Stuart Weitzman collaborated on a collection of athletic-inspired boots, and now the luxury footwear label has renewed its collaboration with the 22-year old model for a capsule of flat mules.
Hot on the heels – pun always intended - of the launch of her makeup collection with Maybelline and her third Tommy x Gigi runway collaboration, the Gigi Hadid X Stuart Weitzman boasts two new exclusive footwear styles for fall. The slippers, named Eyelove and Eyelovemore, are suede pointed-toe flats that incorporate the otherworldly symbol the "evil eye".
“I’ve really been into slides lately and wanted a pair that can take me into fall…no more cold toes! The evil eye is a powerful symbol meant to protect those who wear it from negative energies,” says Hadid on the collaboration. “It’s emotionally comforting and beautiful and captivating to look at. The bright colors are fun and remind me why we designed these shoes — they represent our commitment to build three additional schools with Pencils of Promise. Look Good, Do Good.”
Like previous collaborations with the American footwear label, the collection has a charitable aspect. With a focus on creating quality education programs in third world countries, the designs will aid Stuart Weitzman’s partnership with Pencils of Promise and its financial commitment of $105,000 to build an additional three schools this fall/winter 2017 in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.

The supermodel, who has been fronting the ad campaigns for Stuart Weitzman since 2015, also stars in a mystical campaign video called The Season for Loving, directed by Cameron Duddy.
The mules are priced at Dhs2,200 (EYELOVE) and Dhs2,600 (EYELOVEMORE) and exclusively available at modaoperandi.com.
