Stuart Weitzman has announced that he will step down from his role as CEO and creative director of his namesake company. The decision comes 25 years after the American designer began making shoes and just over a year after he inked a reported 4 million deal with Coach to acquire the brand in early 2015. Weitzman is handing over the majority of control to Giovanni Morelli—the former leather goods director at Loewe—but will remain at the company in his new role as chairman.
“In Giovanni, we have found a creative director who will ensure that the unique DNA of the brand will be preserved while infusing his creative vision for a modern age,” said Weitzman in a statement. “Giovanni is respected for his attention to detail, respect of quality and craftsmanship and for his modern sensibility that is always pushing new design boundaries.” Morelli’s appointment as creative director will be effective as of May next year.
