Del Toro will be releasing its latest artist series in collaboration with Brooklyn based artist, Katherine Bernhardt for Art Basel 2016. A release party will be held at The Webster flagship store in Miami Beach from 3-6pm, November 30th. The capsule will be available exclusively at The Webster, Colette in Paris, The Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth, as well as the Del Toro Wynwood Boutique and online store.
“I am extremely excited to be working with Katherine. I fell in love with her work immediately and bought my first piece from her last year. Her subject matter is universally optimistic and relevant. Encapsulating a variety of pop cultural items in a whimsical format, her work is amazing. It is an honor to collaborate with her and my intent was to translate her work to my footwear. We chose a faded distressed leather that mimics the water color effect of her work and chose embroideries so as the subject matter would pop, the socks/ fries/ cellphones and various items used in the shoes are exceptional” said Matthew Chevallard, Creative Director and President of Del Toro Shoes.
“Brooklyn deli culture meets toilet paper and sharpies meets cool Caribbean colors and sharks meet Del Toro. Come see what that looks and feels like!” said Katherine Bernhardt
