Stuart Weitzman announces its continuation of SWxYOU, its limited-edition customization series, with the introduction of “Be Suede,” exclusively on www.stuartweitzman.com. The program unites two of the season’s hottest trends – summer suede and the classic espadrille flat – giving shoppers the unique opportunity to reimagine this warm weather must-have by choosing from 15 shades ranging from bold shades of clementine orange, sol yellow and pimento red to soft neutrals including dove gray, haze tan and bisque cream.
A celebration of personal style, the customization option extends beyond the palette, and is comprised of three simple steps: 1) Choose the shade of suede 2) Select the metallic hardware tone 3) Opt to embellish the vamp with studs or keep it smooth and simple. Each pair will be meticulously handcrafted in Spain – the birthplace of the traditional espadrille.
The flat is infallible this season, with the espadrille dominating fashion headlines. Both sporty and chic, this lightweight slip-on becomes instantly elegant when recast in supple suede, yet decidedly downtown when embedded with studs. Shoe lovers, brand loyalists and trendsetters alike are sure to “be suede” by this exclusive opportunity to choose, create and customize a luxe limited-edition espadrille, only from Stuart Weitzman.
The SWxYOU: Be Suede experience, which launched today at stuartweitzman.com will be available only until May 13, 2014 with delivery by the end of June. The “Be Suede” espadrille ranges in price from $298 – $335. www.stuartweitzman.com
