The most surprising fall designer collaboration we've heard of yet is this one, which comes to us courtesy of The Row—yes, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen—and charity buy-one-give-one shoe business Toms Shoes. The two companies have teamed up to offer luxe versions of Toms' signature slip-ons constructed of Italian-sourced wool and cashmere—and priced accordingly from $98 to $150.
"We feel it's really important to spread awareness of the Toms One for one mission," Ashley said in a statement. "For every pair of Toms + The Row shoe sold a child in need will receive a new pair of shoes."
"The giving is immediate," Mary-Kate added. "Having the opportunity to be a part of something so meaningful has made the collaboration with Toms special to everyone at The Row."
