Coveting | Del Toro X Pepsi loafers and chukka sneakers

6 artists. 6 brands. 1 global collection.
This week I got to head to Bloomingdale's to preview the "Live For Now" global capsule collection from Pepsi. It features 6 different artists collaborating with 6 fashion brands, fashioning everything from skateboards to headphones and street wear.
It was a really great collection in general -- the artistic doodles totally on trend with what's happening right now as far as collaborations are going(Forever21 just released a collection featuring art by Keith Haring and Jean Michel-Basquiat) -- but what caught my eye in particular was the footwear from Del Toro.
I'm honestly not much of a shoe guy unless it's a high top or a boot, but these color-punching Made in Italy leather fits caused me pause.
Retailing at $365 a pop, the slightly limited-edition chukka sneaks and slippers are available at 15 Bloomingdale's stores Stateside and online as well as at Liberty in London and colette in Paris.

Check out some of my favorites from the Del Toro styles below.
