Miami, October 13, 2012: Del Toro released the first collaboration of their “Del Toro Artists Series” with artist Alexander Mijares with an event hosted at Ufficio Del Toro during Miami’s Art Walk. Guests sipped on 42 Below + Perrier cocktails and enjoyed sounds by DJ John. Del Toro will collaborate with various Miami artists and release the limited edition collaborations with events during Art Walk this fall. Mijares, a Miami based artist, has combined his Spanish style with Del Toro’s classic Prince Albert silhouette to create a limited edition run of exclusive slippers for men and women. Inspired by life, Mijares’ creation features a “shaped skull” for the men’s slipper and his signature “flamenco ladies” in the shape of a “D” and “T” for the women’s slipper.
The limited edition “Del Toro x Alexander Mijares” slippers are available for $325 on www.deltoroshoes.com.
Creative Director of Del Toro, Matthew Chevallard, is an avid art enthusiast and enjoys collaborating with local Miami artists on limited edition projects. “I am excited about this collaboration series because it creates great exposure to talented local artists. I enjoy seeing the various interpretations of the Del Toro brand from each artist’s perspective and getting to know the artists personally.” – Matthew Chevallard
“I think the collaboration was brilliant in that fashion is also a form of art and being able to mix the two worlds was a cool experience.” – Alexander Mijares
