stop. collaborate. listen.


the twins behind the high-end line The Row are joining TOMS for a charitable shoe collection. the popular espadrilles are known for donating a pair of shoes to a child in need, per purchase. shoes usually go for about $40-70 but The Row's shoes that will be made of Italian-sourced wool and cashmere blends will range from $98 to $150. Stylelite raised a great point, that with almost twice the price, the brands should be able to donate two pairs, not just one. that's the politics of this collab. but on the brighter side, I'm glad the Olsen's have hopped on board for this great cause.

"We feel it's really important to spread awareness of the TOMS One for One mission...The giving is immediate. Having the opportunity to be a part of something so meaningful has made the collaboration with TOMS special to everyone at The Row," explained Ashley Olsen
