If you thought statement making shoes were only meant for the Lady Gagas of the world, think again! Del Toro has joined with designer Edie Parker to bring shoeholics a collection filled with colors, fun and quirky cool emojis! Between Karl Largerfeld’s new app and Del Toro’s new shoes, it looks like emojis are taking over the fashion world.
Made for the text savvy generation, the collection is titled M’oticons and includes a range of brightly colored loafers reminiscent of smoking slippers and matching clutches each ornamented with a cheeky emoji. The shoes are christened with names that capture the spirit of their unique emojis and you can choose from eccentric titles like DaBomb, the Shit, ToungueInCheek, CatLoafer, QueenBee, HighMaintenance, HotChick and NoEvil. The fun accessories are the perfect way to add some street-cred to your outfits; wear with distressed jeans and a t-shirt for a casual day out or get instant it-girl status by pairing them with a stark formal suit.
The collection may be just for fun, but the prices are definitel6y serious, while the loafers themselves are about $340, the clutches will set you back a cool $1,600. Currently the collection is available only at Moda Operandi.
M’oticons may never earn favor with the couture crowd, but we predict that they will be street style stars for many seasons to come! But get them soon! The trunk show ends in just 11 days.
