NBA star Chandler Parsons and designer shoe label Del Toro have just released their second capsule collection together. The Spring/Summer 2016 line will be launching exclusively at Del Toro and Saks Fifth Avenue later this month and will include a selection of boots, sneakers, slippers and high-tops. This isn’t the first time the basketball star and the luxury label have partnered together—earlier this year Parsons joined the company as the new brand ambassador and a special edition driving boot was released to celebrate. Matthew Chevallard, co-founder and creative director of Del Toro, is known for looking to athletes when searching for inspiration, in the past he’s worked with the Seahawks for their 2014 Super Bowl championship and Oklahoma City Thunders player Russell Westbrook on a capsule collection exclusively for Barneys.
A launch party for the Chandler Parsons x Del Toro collection was held at the end of October, at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. The 27-year-old player was joined by fellow teammates Wesley Matthews, Salah Mejri, Jeremy Evans and Derron Williams, celebrities like Michelle Trachtenberg, and models Toni Garrn and Kendall Jenner. Guests were served drinks by Casa Amigos and grooved on music by DJ Skee.
