Oh, Paris. The European capital of love, romance, fashion and so much more. The city of light attracts millions of tourists each year hoping to explore it and walk around its every corner. Well, in comfortable shoes for sure. And who can combine comfort and chicness better than the French?
Dondoks Paris makes dreamy shoes inspired by the romantic side we carry with us at all times.
Paris and Brazil
Dondoks is a Paris-based brand that embraces and celebrates the Parisian lifestyle. But, the shoes are handmade in Brazil, soaking in the sun, blue sky and colourful vibes of the country. Ethical production practices, high quality materials such as leather and slow, local production are core to the brand’s DNA.
Dondoks is made for women. The women who do not lose their girly side, who love colour and unique designs, romance and sunny days. Each design is eye-catching due to its vibrant shades and intricate details and definitely Carrie Bradshaw-approved.
The dreamy pieces can be worn with a simple summer outfit such as a linen white dress. Or, they can be paired with basket bags, jean shorts and a striped shirt to complete the French-girl look. The go-to style is to pair the shoe with a bag of the same colour palette and keep the rest of the outfit simple and monochromatic.
The History of Dondoks
Dondoks encompasses the fairytale aspect of its establishment.
Carmen Cerrillo and Charlotte Janaina, friends and former dancers decided to make their passion for fashion and creativity into a business. Their Latino heritage inspired them to focus their designs on summer, sunny weather and full colour bloom. Their past as dancers instilled them the focus on the feet and making them look beautiful.
And thus, Dondoks was born.
