Originally a men’s-only footwear label, Del Toro has evolved into a full-fledged line of accessories with an impressive reputation for merging fashion and art. In the fall, the brand debuted its Artist Series, a collaboration with Miami artists on limited-edition styles for Wynwood Art Walk. Del Toro then recently revealed another creative installation by local and international artists to fête the launch of its first boutique. The shop showcases leopard-printed sneakers for women, color-blocked suede wing tips for men, brightly colored woven belts, baseball caps, and patterned socks, as well as a striking collection of leather goods, including backpacks, wallets, and tech cases, that will launch soon. 2750 NW Third Ave., Ste. 22, Miami, 305-571-8229
