Rose Huntington-Whiteley is no stranger to the business of fashion. Beyond her status as one of the world’s top models working at the moment, Huntington-Whiteley also has launched a number of successful business ventures and collaborations. There is to date: Rose Inc. a beauty content platform; Resorè, a luxury towel brand; Clean Beauty Collaborative, a forthcoming line of cosmetics; a partnership with Hourglass Cosmetics; and finally, who could forget her Rosie for Autograph line with British retail brand Marks & Spencer.
Now, she’s putting yet another business foot forward. Huntington-Whiteley has collaborated with Italian shoe brand Gia Couture Firenze on a collection of shoes.
“I’ve designed four exclusive styles, mixing modern silhouettes with natural-looking textures and materials, such as radica wood, suede, and braided leather,” shared Huntington-Whiteley in an Instagram post about the launch. “Each pair is handcrafted in Italy and makes a beautiful addition to any spring-summer wardrobe.”
As for her favourite? It’s the Rosie 2, in white specifically—this is the minimalist and neutral-loving Rosie we’re talking about after all. Featuring both an extremely on-trend square-toe and puffy, padded strapping, Huntington-Whiteley said that the style has “to be one of my favourite pairs from my #GIAxRHW collection.” Would we expect any less from the woman whose home looks like this?
“For me personally I have been enjoying the revitalization of the square toe finish,” she added, before going on to explain some of the design processes: “It was vital to me that we designed a heel and flat within the same collection to cater for all. In terms of heel height that was key for me, as I wanted the height, but we needed to create a heel that was comfortable and easily wearable,” shared the model.
Below, take a peek at some neutral outfit inspiration and the new collaboration.
