Gandys Flips Flops Arrive at Dolci Follie

Gandys glitter flip flops

When we first heard about Gandys flip flops, we immediately fell in love with the heartbreaking but inspiring story behind the company, and the uplifting ethos of the brand.

Gandys white leopard flip flops

The company was founded by two brothers, Rob and Paul, after coming up with the idea at a music festival. The brothers wanted to create something unique and driven by their personal passion after the tragic loss of their parents in the Boxing Day Tsunami whilst the family was travelling.

The pair tied in their “orphans for orphans” mission, which supports children in need of basic essentials such as nutrition, shelter and education, has already started to make an impact by funding children’s homes in India and Sri Lanka and the vision is to open them all around the world. With 10% of profits from every flip flop going towards the “Orphans for Orphans” mission, you can purchase with purpose whilst freeing your feet.

After starting in their small bedroom in Brixton, the company has captured many hearts with its inspiring story, and continues to grow.

Not only do we love the spirit of the brand, we also love the fun designs of the fantastic flip flops! For the wild at heart there’s the Leopard Print style, or for those looking for shimmer and shine and in the sun, there’s a gorgeous glittery range in pink, green, white and black!

Dolci Follie in the Press January 2014

dolci follie press blog japan paper

It’s already becoming a very busy year for all at Dolci Follie, so it’s lovely to come across the name of the store in the pages of magazines and newspapers when we catch a moment to sit down and take five.

After our incredible Catwalk Party at Le Baron de Paris in Tokyo at the end of last year, we’ve had a lot of coverage in Japan. The most recent being at interview with Senken newspaper:

Simona talks about Dolci Follie to Senken newspaper, Japan

The article talks about the origins of Dolci Follie and our passion for beautiful lingerie with a perfect fit, as well as Simona’s plans to expand to Japan in the future. It’s very exciting to receive international press interest from so far away! We loved hosting the party with Hidden Agenda last November and can’t wait to visit Japan and do it all again very soon.

This month, our latest arrival from Fleur of England, the smoulderingly sensual red lace Amor set (available online here), appeared on the ‘THINGS WE LOVE’ section in the fashion pages of The Hill Resident:

Dolci Follie in the Hill Resident
It’s a strikingly sensual set perfect for Valentine’s – no wonder it’s getting a lot of attention! The lustful lace cups and luxurious silk satin ties make it a true pleasure to wear, whilst the bright, bold, rose-red colour conjures romance and passion.

Hot on the heels of our recent win at the UK Lingerie Awards 2013 (for Independent Retailer of the Year no less), the gorgeous Simona and Mariko were pictured in The Mayfair Resident:

Les Jupons de Tess Lingerie: Modern French Luxury with a Vintage Feel

Les Jupons de Tess Lingerie st Dolci Follie shop

Introducing the latest designer to land at Dolci Follie: Les Jupons de Tess. Based in Paris, Les Jupons de Tess offer that classic French luxury and style with a delightfully modern twist.

We fell head over heels for the latest addition to Dolci Follie – combining the most exquisite lace with tempting and tantalising silhouettes, Les Jupons de Tess are a dream for a lingerie connoisseur. The brand’s designer takes inspiration from the coquetry of the 18th century; the ruffles, ribbons and abundance of lace. LJT takes this romantic, resplendent era and ties it in with an altogether more modern muse.

One piece that you’re sure to adore is the Honour Black Lace Body. The high chiffon collar reminiscent of Edwardian dress contrasts with the devilishly plunging neckline, broken only by the slim black band just under the bust. Delicate lace skirts the hips, giving a feminine flourish that won’t go unnoticed.

Enchantingly elegant – the Honour Black Lace Body

Add a touch of sparkle to your ensemble with the Tea Party set. The oh-so cheeky peekaboo briefs have a detachable panel at the back adorned with gorgeous, glittering sequins. This matches perfectly with the cute peter-pan sequin collar and delicate sequin cuffs. The adorable collar and cuffs ensemble is perfect for adding glittering glamour to a party outfit, and best of all you can reveal the matching briefs at the end of the night!

As its name may suggest the Garden Of Tuileries ensemble is designed with opulence and splendour. The graceful and intricate cotton lace is in a deep plum shade, accented by jet black chiffon sleeves. The sheer set can be worn with a figure-hugging slip. This elegant and elaborate ensemble is the perfect balance of lingerie and outerwear, giving the wearer complete choice over how much skin to show…
