When it comes to my shopping habits, I proudly admit that I fall under the popular category of relentless shopaholics, notorious for believing that a woman can never have too many bags and shoes. That’s a commitment I adamantly adhere to, hence my constant hunt for new brands and styles to try out. Lucky for me, when I found out about the recent opening of Dumond, the hottest brand for impeccably made contemporary shoes and bags just in from Brazil, I paid the boutique what I knew would be a long, leisurely visit.
Opening up just in time for my annual pilgrimage to The Avenues, where I’d dress up in casual trainers and scour the mall from end to end, Dumond will surely please every fashionista looking for a different take on the season’s must have- trends.
Brazilian fashion elements combined with a sophisticated and audacious design, that’s the way Dumond offers women the best in accessories and shoes. The collections in store reflect the brand’s heritage of the Brazilian way—premium quality, beauty, and style. From shoes in various styles like sandals, wedges, peep toe heels, platforms, pumps, loafers and slippers to clutches, totes, wallets and other accessories, I was absolutely stunned by the fabulous collections.
The Spring-Summer collection is nothing short of a palette of temptations, with colors that reflect the exotic spirits of tropical Rio. Gorgeous bright colors dominate the collection, with a medley of tangerine, astounding neon greens, deeper blues, coral, and teal. Color blocking details are seen on platform heels and wedges alike, especially with lighter, neutral shades that will remind you of succulent fruits such as guava, lime, raspberry and blueberry.
Another dominant trend includes enticing leopard and python prints in a plethora of bright colors in the form of stiletto heels, platform pumps, and wedges, paired with modern materials like satins, pearly varnish finishes, and patent leathers. An ethnic homage is also made with Bohi-chic styles that combine linen, cut out leathers, cork heels and shades of camel and earthy greens.
When it comes to morning to nighttime glamour, the Spring-Summer collection will leave you smiling with shimmering sequins, patent leather styles and my personal favorite, a demure take on the studded trend. This materializes in the form of a classy peep toe heel that is available in both pastel shades and bright colors with elegantly studded details. Along with metallic leathers, chromed heels, mod-ish acryclic and vinyl accessories, the Spring-Summer collection also includes cool and casual sneakers in gold and silver metallic—a necessity in every fashionista’s summer wardrobe. Don’t forget to check out the clutches, totes, and cross body bags, these will elegantly compliment the shoes you’ll be rocking from spring till the end of summer!
