BROOKLYN IN MILAN: Stuart Weitzman unveiled its first men’s shoes collection in Milan, a product extension that responds to demands from all of the brand’s geographical markets, said Jonathan Lelonek, senior vice president of global wholesale.
Marking the launch, friend of the house Brooklyn Beckham touted the craftsmanship of the shoes. His favorites? “The chunky loafers from the Club line — they are comfortable, lightweight and go perfect with any outfit,” he said, pointing to his own suit pants, T-shirt and bomber jacket.

He said his wife, Nicola Peltz, helped him choose the ones he was wearing at the presentation and she was not far from his thoughts as he held a cap with “Lola” written on it, supporting her latest venture, the film of the same name she directed and acted in.
Beckham said he’d always been “a big fan” of Stuart Weitzman, and that “hopefully we’ll build a really long collaboration.”
The collection includes three main lines: the Club, comprising sleek loafers and oxfords in supple leather and suede; Premiere, for special occasions, including velvet and precious embellishments, and Resort, laid-back moccasins and slides, in soft suede or durable tumbled leather.
Designs will retail at around $595 and the collection will be available at the brand’s online store and at retailers including Saks, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom beginning in February.
