While the warmth of summer is still keeping most of our ankles out in the open air, the bold stylings of Richer Poorer's latest line has us looking forward to socks. Dropping this week to coincide with Capsule Las Vegas, the seven-style Union Thread collection introduces a handful of new colorways that join the three designed in collaboration with lavish smoking shoe maker Del Toro, which launched this spring. Made in the US, the Union Thread collection features stripes, stars, polka dots, digi camo and Native American-inspired prints.

The socks are made from a blend of 96% cotton and nylon, with 4% spandex adding just a bit of stretch. The combination results in a sock that's soft, stays in place and stays comfortable for all-day wear.

Of the bunch the boldest designs are the digi camo and stars and bars designs from the Del Toro collaboration. Stepping it up from the typical dots and argyle, the patterns remain easily wearable with just a subtle flash of flamboyance. These styles sell directly from Del Toro online.

The entire Union Thread collaboration is available now from Richer Poorer for $20 a pair. Also expect to see them in some of the bigger-name retailers like Bergdorf and Neiman Marcus in the coming months.
