The story of Dolla begins with a portrait of Dolorès, Carla's Spanish grandmother who, throughout her life, has never ceased to be a model of empowerment, elegance and generosity.
A healthy glow, hair tousled by the wind and sparkling eyes, she soaks up the summer sun on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
In this photo, she is wearing a black bikini with gold-colored jewelry straps that cast the rays of the setting sun.
For several years, Carla tried in vain to find this perfectly cut and minimalist style, the epitome of carefree elegance. So she decided to rewrite the story, and Dolla was born.
DOLLA IS A RESORTWEAR LABEL INSPIRED BY MEDITERRANEAN NOSTALGIA.
The warmth of the sun on the skin, the balminess of a summer's evening, the light heartedness of holidays… With each creation, Dolla celebrates a delightfully retro and nostalgic vision of the Mediterranean art of living.
Natural elegance and exacting high standards combine here to create unique and timeless pieces. Each design in this debut collection can be adapted and personalized to suit your mood for a custom style that stands the test of time, summer after summer.
Dolla believes in more sustainable and valued fashion, with pieces that can be passed on like a family heirloom.
Designed in Paris and made in Italy and Portugal, Dolla—a combination of the names Dolorès and Carla—is a story of women, a story of theMediterranean, a story of summer holidays.
Sustainable fashion has been the focus of Dolla since day one.
On one hand, through the creation of timeless basics imbued with an elegance that lasts through the seasons, pieces that we treasure summer after summer.
On the other hand, by choosing to work with eco-friendly fabrics and implementing green production practices. All this with a single objective in mind: to channel all of the project's authenticity and sincerity into the creation of exceptional swimwear.
All of the fabrics used in Dolla creations proudly carry the Standard 100 label, the highest level of OEKO-TEX®certification. This guarantees the articles are free of substances known to be harmful to the skin and the planet.
What is more, the outer fabric of Dolla swimwear is made from ECONYL®, a recycled yarn derived from plastic waste collected around the world. Cleaned and then purified, the resulting nylon is exactly the same quality as virgin nylon.
A virtuous production process
Designed in Paris and then sustainably produced in Portugal and Italy, Dolla swimwear stands today as a symbol of tomorrow's fashion.
And with reason: the Portuguese firm that produces our Dolorès and Lola designs is recognized as a responsible and socially conscious company.
They promote the use of natural raw materials and their carbon footprint is close to zero, achieved through a significant investment in renewable energy sources. The rigor and high standards of the Italian house that manufactures our jewelry chains can be seen in the irreproachable quality of their work: a collection of four couture straps in perfect affinity with the skin.
Packaging that looks to the future
The cotton pouches and cardboard boxes that protect the Dolla designs are made of over 90% recycled materials.
To go even further, Dolla has chosen to support the One Tree Planted organization and to offset the carbon footprint of each shipment of recycled cardboard boxes by planting trees in an effort to help global reforestation.
