NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sexy, strappy, sleek, minimal - the NUDIST sandal is as close to bare as a fashionable foot can get. Coveted by Hollywood's chicest starlets, this new Stuart Weitzman collection silhouette has garnered a cult-like following so quickly and dramatically that the designer has created an interactive customization tool that will launch on Wednesday, February 12th, exclusively on www.stuartweitzman.com.
The "SW x You" limited-edition customization program celebrates personal style by giving shoppers the unique opportunity to design their own NUDIST sandal in a variety of 12 materials and colors. From camouflage linen to floral python to foil nappa to sugar lace, and with a vast palette of bold spring brights, shiny metallics and soft neutrals, there is a combination to satisfy every stylish shoe lover. And if the NUDIST's 4 ½-inch heel is too towering, a 3-inch heel version (the NAKED) is available within the customization program. Retail prices range from $385 - $625, with an approximate delivery period of 6-8 weeks.
The NUDIST has become a red carpet favorite of Hollywood's fashion elite including Diane Kruger, Jennifer Lawrence and Olivia Wilde, and has swept this season's awards shows, having made appearances at the Golden Globes and the People's Choice Awards. But, the simplicity and elegance of this silhouette makes it equally appropriate off the red carpet, as exemplified by Naya Rivera and Lauren Conrad who have been spotted wearing the NUDIST in their everyday lives. And now, every woman will have the opportunity to create a custom version that can easily transition from day to night with fashionable ease.
