Fancy Feet: Del Toro x TYPOE
Last year, Miami-based footwear label Del Toro introduced its Artists Series—a range of in-house capsules created in collaboration with local artists. For its upcoming project, the brand tapped TYPOE—a provocative street artist known for his depiction of urban undergrounds and pseudo celebrity. “We are very like-minded,” said TYPOE when asked about the collaborative process. A fusion of TYPOE’s pop-modern aesthetics and Del Toro’s traditional-with-a-twist ethos, the shoes feature a floral motif messily printed across the house’s signature wing-tip silhouette. “[TYPOE's] style of mixing classic and contemporary is something I feel strongly about—enhancing the heritage per se,” said Matthew Chevallard, Del Toro’s CEO and creative director.
The kicks will debut at Laure Heriard Dubreuil’s The Webster on April 26. And just to make the launch a little more special, TYPOE and Del Toro have designed a small selection of Webster-specific shoes, which will be stamped with hues mirroring the South Beach retail mecca’s tropical color scheme.
Del Toro x TYPOE’s shoes are priced at $350 and will be available at The Webster and deltoroshoes.com from April 26.
