Please welcome handcrafted Brazilian footwear for modern men named Docksrio. In today's post I want to introduce to you label's newly launched Summer 2015 collection, what is available to the UK market and online at docksrio.com. What is so special about this collection anyway? The presented shoes were inspired by Rio de Janeiro. Each design carries a name synonymous with a neighbourhood in the vibrant city, including Barra, Copa, Leblon, Lapa and Leme.
Docks Rio takes an original approach to the iconic boatshoe, by offering us high quality craftsmanship and striking design. The footwear is handcrafted in Franca (municipality in the Brazilian state of São Paulo). Docks Rio uses ethically sourced materials, like Tilapia leather (an exotic fish skin previously discarded as a by-product of the food industry). The collection is entirely handsewn. Docks Rio client is a modern man who is a self-confident person with active, vibrant lifestyle. All in all, we see a totally authentic collection that reflects the charm of Brazilian style and delivers a future of sustainable luxury.
