Cheeky, clever, and occasionally offbeat, emoticons have wiggled their way into our everyday. But the latest collaboration between designers Edie Parker and Del Toro has transformed them into something even more special: an accessories collection.

The whimsical line features Del Toro’s punchy Italian-made loafers adorned with hot-chick, dancing-queen, and lovestruck-feline emoticons, while Parker’s showgirl-inspired clutches are emblazoned with sparkly hashtags that mimic their shoe counterparts.
Now I, like many a fellow iPhone® user, consider myself an emoji connoisseur. I’ll sprinkle them into just about every conversation, when possible. So when I set my eyes on these tangible recreations of my much-loved animations, well – let’s just say I instantly pictured myself in a swanky bar, wineglass loafers afoot and #Tipsy clutch in hand.
