Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s collaboration with shoe label Gia Couture, has just landed on Frwd.com – and it looks great.
True to her minimalist flair and love of all things neutral, the collection is filled with warm, earthy tones, sculptural heels and square toes galore.
Huntington Whiteley teased the launch last December with a casual snap of a pair of very promising-looking mules, featuring a toe ring and thick leather strap that got the Internet and shoe lovers excited.
And she didn’t disappoint: The full collection, dubbed GIA/RHW is filled with modernist staples that will take you a long way this summer, including a series of flat sandals featuring luxe leather and a platform that’s the perfect height. There are also some very interesting constructions, including a wooden wedge merged with a gold kitten heel, while the mules that the supermodel teased last year come in an array of suede and matte leather options and feature cool, slanted heels.
Another favourite is the acetate ankle chain that can be used to add a little extra character to all the strappy sandals in the range, or any other summer shoe.
Prices range from £411 ($575) for the flat sandals to £529 ($740) for the toe ring mules. The full range is currently available to pre-order on Fwrd and is set to launch on the Gia Couture website on March 20.
It’s no secret that I love a good shoe and that I love collaborating with talented women,” said the supermodel when announcing the collaboration on her popular Instagram.

She was referring to Gia Couture’s Barbara Borghini, the woman behind the Florentine label. Borghini helped the young brand shoot to fame by collaborating with fellow female creatives she admires, from London retailer Alex Eagle, to everyone’s favourite Danish influencer Pernille Teisbaek and now Huntington-Whiteley, who has been on a roll as of late, growing her beauty platform Rose Inc. and adding her own signature to products, from shoes to La Bouche Rouge sustainable lipsticks and chic Hunting Season travel cases.
The four GIA/RHW styles are available in a range of colours and materials, explore the full collection below.
