Toms is reaching out to men and boys with the launch today of a limited-edition capsule collection created in conjunction with The Hill-Side, an accessories and apparel brand based in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The collection marks Toms’ first menswear designer collaboration and includes accessories such as ties, pocket squares and sunglasses. The idea for the collection was sparked by The Hill-Side’s founders, brothers Emil and Sandy Corsillo, who came to Toms with the idea of creating a capsule collection using Toms’ styles — the Alpargata and Paseo — with The Hill-Sides’s signature Japanese fabrics.
To celebrate the launch, Sandy Corsillo took to the streets of Brooklyn to photograph his influencer friends for companion imagery. It’s a playful look at cool dads and their sons wearing items in the collection.
The collection is available at Toms stores, The Hill-Side store in Brooklyn and online. Retail prices range from $40 to $129 for the shoes, $238 for the sunglasses and $39 to $90 for the pocket squares and scarf.
And, as with all Toms products, for each pair of shoes purchased, a new pair will be donated to a child in need while the purchase of a pair of sunglasses will help restore someone’s sight. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of accessories will be donated to a New York charitable organization.
