Mickey. Minnie. Belle. Elsa. When it comes to bold screen stars of the past and present, it simply doesn’t get more iconic than those who’ve appeared in Disney films. It makes sense, then, that when contemplating its first-ever global collaboration, Stuart Weitzman partnered with the entertainment giant on a limited-edition capsule collection for fall 2022. Disney x Stuart Weitzman, as it’s so-called, combines the shoe brand’s industry-beloved silhouettes (think: the Nudistcurve sandal and the 5050 boot) with Mickey and Minnie Mouse via Swarovski crystal embellishments in the shape of everyone’s favorite big-eared sweethearts.
“For me, the collaboration is a celebration of icons,” global head of design Edmundo Castillo exclusively tells ELLE.com. “It unites Disney fans and Stuart Weitzman shoe lovers, and each timeless piece was designed to inspire the wearer to dream with confidence.”
The accompanying campaign, Magic at the Movies, was shot at the Village East by Angelika movie theater in downtown New York City and stars model Lindsay Wixson, striking dramatic poses in the seats and aisles as Mickey and Minnie gab in the background (presumably about shoes). Mark your calendars for the launch of the collection, which drops Aug. 15 on stuartweitzman.com and in select Stuart Weitzman boutiques; in the meantime, click through our slideshow for a first look at the styles. Yoo-hoo, tee-hee, etc.
