Trance icon Paul van Dyk is dancing into a new world: fashion. Tomorrow (June 17), he’ll release a collaborative collection with California cool brand TOMS.

The shoes and eyewear collab will feature a galaxy-inspired design with Paul’s signature triangle logo. There’s also a nod to his VANDIT record label logo. Van Dyk is excited about the pairing.

“I love the way the shoes and glasses turned out,” van Dyk tells Billboard. “It was my first cooperation with fashion designers.”
He’s even more thankful for TOMS’ One for One program, which gives away a pair of shoes for each one bought. TOMS also helps restore sight to someone for every pair of glasses purchased.
“As soon as I learned about their program it was a natural connection,” he continues. “Supporting such programs is an important part of what I do. So when the idea to do something together came up it was a short conversation. TOMS and I had an immediate understanding about what is important: help people if you can. And if we can do so with a bit of style, much the better. I think we succeeded doing both here.”
The TOMS x Paul van Dyk shoe collection will be available in two silhouettes: TOMS Classics for Men and Women for $59 and TOMS Paseo Mids for men at $70.
TOMS Beachmaster eyewear frame is priced at $125. The entire collection will be available at TOMS.com and TOMS retail locations June 17.
By the way, van Dyk is set spin this weekend at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.
