Del Toro X Evoca1

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Miami, FL – October 24 & 26, 2013 – If the shoe fits, wear it—especially if it’s from Del Toro’s latest collaboration with Evoca1. The comfy and cool shoe brand, known for partnering with local artists, recently launched a shoe designed by Elio Mercado, a.k.a. Evoca1. The collaboration was a long time coming. When Del Toro’s owners were shopping for new office space in Wynwood, they stumbled upon a wolf mural that struck a chord with them. That mural was by Evoca1. The team admired it so much, they requested Evoca1 make a mural for their own space. And the relationship blossomed from walls to footwear, yielding shoes inspired by the classic Western wolf motif of the ‘80s and ‘90s.

The partnership also marked a new technique for the brand. Here, the leather of the chukka and slipper styles is directly printed on, giving a hand-painted look to the shoes. Says Matthew Chevallard, the brains behind Del Toro, “My purpose is to continue building and embracing the special cultural movement progressing in Miami, and working with key members of the community, like Elio, to further convey my brand’s message and bring the art I love to the industry Del Toro focuses on.” For Mercado, the opportunity was about exploring new horizons. “The greatest element of the project was being able to offer my art and my vision in a new medium: fashion. In leveraging the luxury platform that Del Toro has built, we’ve resulted in the perfect partnership.” To celebrate the launch, the brand hosted a cocktail party fueled with fashion, music, art and cocktails in its Wynwood boutique.

iii Points

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

James Murphy

Miami, FL – October 3-5, 2013 – This past weekend, Miami’s nightlife set took a weekend-long trip to Wynwood for iii Points, the art, music and technology fest put together by Amir Ben-Zion, Erica Freshman, David Sinopoli, Jason Odio and the record label Young Turks (the label behind the xx and SBTRKT). Through DJ sets, locally made art installations and burgeoning technology, Wynwood became more than just a hipster hang, it transformed the city into a cultural epicenter. “The neighborhood was busy, places that would be normally closed were hosting events that were out of the box, like freeze dance, music showcases, panel talks. There were many new faces exploring all the amazing little nooks that make Wynwood so incredible,” says Freshman. “Seeing it all come together, people interacting, dancing and marinating in the spirit of iii Points was my favorite aspect of the festival.” Fueling that spirit were acts like Yacht, Jamie xx, DJ Shadow and James Murphy. Providing art candy were local talents like Agustina Woodgate, Sleeper, Twinhaus, Jason Peterman and Typoe, making sure there was plenty to see in addition to what you could hear. Agustina Woodgate created a grand holographic entrance that swept Instagram by storm, while Jason Peterman did 3D mapping and Twinhaus created its “Moving Ride.” Can we expect another dynamic festival next year? According to Freshman, “Yes, for sure.” Until then, revel in these highlights as experienced by Freshman herself.

Point Blank, Music by Jacques Greene, Koreless, James Murphy, Jamie xx

It was the show of all shows. James Murphy played a bunch of old disco and funk remixes. And he only played vinyl. Some of the tracks included, Paul Simon’s “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes” re-mixed by Todd Terje. He kept it in that 100-110 bpm tempo and had it super funky with lots of horns, strings and percussion. Meanwhile, Jaques Greene was so into his delivery, think full body movement from behind the booth, robotic and sexy dance moves. Jamie xx, however, was all ‘90s sounds, like drum and bass and house. He closed out his set with an xx song, of course. And Koreless created the eye candy with a pop-up installation.

DFA BBQ with YACHT – LIVE

Some of the songs played included “Party at the NSA” (a new song), “Utopia,” “Dystopia” and “Psychic City.” Jona and Claire from the band had great banter on stage, including an impromptu Q&A segment with the audience. Topics included: the band’s favorite animal as a collective (which is the domestic housecat) and if Jona has a gag reflex. There was a lot of energy in the small performance space. It was an intimate show, but it felt just right.
