Stuart Weitzman is reimagining how it defines sexy. That means shifting the idea of sexiness to mean something powerful. Something strong. Something confident. Something fun. Something for women, by women and to support women. Sexiness is strength in femininity.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Fall 2019 Campaign, which puts this ethos on full display. It also marks the brand's first global campaign to be photographed and directed by a woman — the incredibly talented Charlotte Wales, whose body of work has come to symbolise the idea that sexiness is no longer determined by the male gaze. Rather, her films and photography portray sexiness as a feeling that starts from within and that is defined exclusively on women’s terms.
“I think my work has a feminine empathy to it and the subject always feels empowered,” the New York- and London-based Wales tells SW SPOTLIGHT. “As a woman today, I like to portray women in a way that I would like to be portrayed myself.”
In fact, she's rewriting what it means to be a modern fashion photographer in general, as she can turn her vision not just into beautiful photographs but also striking, memorable films. Her unique point of view captures women in movement — feeling confident, showing empowerment and defining sexiness on their own terms — like no one else in her field, making her one of the leading talents emerging in the industry.
