ONE of Grafton Street’s newest addition – & Other Stories – has collaborated with footwear brand TOMS and the results are toe-rrific!
The new co-lab sees new interpretations of TOMS styling along with a ready-to-wear collection and a campaign fronted by model Erin Wasson.
Four of TOMS’ classic shoe styles are transformed with colours and prints by & Other Stories: the classic TOMS Alpargata (the slip-on style that started it all), the Lexie (which is TOMS’ signature summer sandal), and two completely new styles: the Deconstructed Alpargata (with a minimalist structure in a soft suede treatment), and the Palmera Chukka (moccasin-inspired lace-up booties).
The best part is the news that with every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need.
Materials and colours applied to these styles can also be seen incorporated throughout the ready-to-wear selection.
Georgine Le Toqueux, designer at & Other Stories, said: “The giving aspect of this co-lab gives it an extra dimension.
“Inspired by TOMS’ idea that two strangers on either sides of the planet or the street, can enrich each other’s lives, we created this collection.
“The goal was to combine modern shapes and embellishment that feel authentic with beautiful details, putting a lot of love into it.”
This collection is available now from & Other Stories Grafton Street, and also online.
