Hot Younger Sister

Ever wish one of your favorite brands had a hot kid sister — one with the same classic beauty and reliability, but with a bit more spunk and edge? First of all, we’re talking shoes, guys — don’t get so excited. Second of all, check out SW1, the newly launched line from accessories pioneer Stuart Weitzman. Under the creative direction of Alvaro Gonzalez, formerly of Jimmy Choo, this offshoot line maintains the craftsmanship on which Weitzman has built his international career (one that began, we should add, in his father’s shoe factory in Haverhill, Massachusetts). But SW1 is designed to appeal to younger, more modern and fashion-forward consumers. The line certainly hits all of the trends, boasting super-structured bags and shoes with gorgeous geometric accents. Kid sister is looking pretty good.
