Accessories to <3: Edie Parker & Del Toro’s Emoji Collaboration

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.
