THE STORY BEHIND THE STUART WEITZMAN X KIDSUPER COLLAB
Learn about the limited-edition collection and film, “The Shoe-In,” starring Mariska Hargitay.
Stuart Weitzman partners with Brooklyn-based brand KidSuper to create the limited-edition Stuart Weitzman x KidSuper Capsule Collection for Spring 2023. The capsule is brought to life in “The Shoe-In,” the campaign short film concepted by KidSuper.
“I adore fashion, the play and expression and creativity of it all, and being able to partner with one my favorite shoe brands in combination with a designer who is on a rocketship to the top was just incredibly exciting.”
— Mariska Hargitay
Inspired by powerful women, “The Shoe-In” stars director, philanthropist and Emmy award-winning actress Mariska Hargitay, best known for playing the indomitable Captain Olivia Benson in the police drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” In the short film, Hargitay leads an eclectic group of New Yorkers in a heist to prevent a piece of artwork — one of the pieces featured in the capsule — from falling into the wrong hands. Featuring cameos from NYC personalities, rapper Big Body Bes and DJs Angel + Dren, as well as Stuart Weitzman Head of Design Edmundo Castillo, the film encapsulates the energy and creativity of the collaboration.
“I loved working with the Stuart Weitzman and KidSuper teams. My day job is serious business to say the least, so I loved the whimsy and how-about-we-try-this feel of this shoot," says Hargitay. "I adore fashion, the play and expression and creativity of it all, and being able to partner with one my favorite shoe brands in combination with a designer who is on a rocketship to the top was just incredibly exciting. I’m so happy to be a part of this project — and I love carrying a work of art with me with every step I take."
“I like doing unexpected things…to collaborate with a luxury shoe company and create my own version of the heel — it's been a dream.”
Created by Stuart Weitzman Head of Design Edmundo Castillo and KidSuper founder Colm Dillane‚ the collaboration brings together two New York City fashion forces as it pairs SW’s signature silhouettes with select pieces of Dillane’s artwork. The result is a capsule of wearable works of art that nods to SW’s vision of creating shoes that meld artisanal Spanish craftsmanship and precisely engineered fit to empower women to stand strong. At the same time, the capsule also stays true to KidSuper's vision of disrupting and democratizing the art world to make art available to all.
The collaboration also marks Dillane’s first time creating women’s footwear. “I like doing unexpected things and expanding the universe of KidSuper,” he says. “I started as a kid making T-shirts in my high school, and now to be able to collaborate with a luxury shoe company and create my own version of the heel — it's been a dream.” Dillane debuted the styles at the KidSuper comedy and fashion show, worn by host Tyra Banks, during Paris Men’s Fashion Week on January 21st.
The limited-edition collection features two of Dillane’s artworks — depicting scenes from a subway platform and an image of a mother and child — applied to sandals, booties, loafers, pumps and even scarves.
“Fashion is art. We all want to wear art. We all want to collect art — and this collection is the perfect form of wearable art,” says Castillo. “It made sense to take our most iconic silhouettes and incorporate KidSuper’s artwork. Each style is a beautifully crafted statement piece you’ll want to wear and cherish forever.”
