Del Toro’s Back to our Roots – Torino FW ‘17 is a story about what Del Toro means and more specifically about Italian heritage.We want to share with people about Del Toro: who we are and what we stand for. This process will be a two-part series with our first collection based on Torino, Italy releasing now and our second part of the series our collection on Miami releasing in the Spring/Summer ’18. Del Toro stands for a fusion of Italian heritage mixed with Americana
Del Toro Creative Director, Matthew Chevallard’s father was a die-hard FC Torino fan and as Italian tradition goes, you root for the team your father supports. We have launched our new collection to pay homage to our brand roots and to honor the City of Torino where Matthew was born. “Del Toro” specifically means a fan of Torino Calcio so it was a dream come true to shoot the collection on three FC Torino players.
Check out all of the silhouettes, original photos by Matthew, and photos captured by Emanuele D’Angelo with FC Torino players, Daniele Baselli, Tomas Rincon, Lorenzo De Silvestri in our lookbook.
Some selections had particular sentimental value for Chevallard, such as the Navy Corduroy Chukka. “I chose corduroy due to the ubiquitous nature of the material growing up with my Dad and uncles always having them as their given uniform for the majority of the year in Torino, Italy.”
Don’t miss the opportunity to snag a pair of the new Del Toro Torino – Back to Our Roots collection, now available on our website.
