Our Story

It all started with dancing. In Paris.  

Aurélie and I met on a dance floor 20 years ago ...  
We like to dance. With our friends, with our children, alone.
It's a bit like our way of stopping time, of finding ourselves, of laughing, of letting go. 
In Argentine tango the cabeceo is an invitation to dance. It is a nod of the head that the man and the woman exchange to invite each other to dance, to agree on a common desire to party together. A non-verbal ritual, loaded with elegance, sensuality and charm that conquered us during our stay in Buenos Aires in 2012.
Tango is much more than a dance, it is a universe of incredible sensations. It is meditation in movement, it is yoga in music. We felt such well-being while dancing that we had to share it.

Back in France, we decided to change the course of our lives and to embark on a common adventure: create a brand of shoes that knows how to marry the elegance of a Made in Italy product with the sensuality of Argentine tango and the comfort of a dance shoe.

In principle, we weren't destined for Fashion. Aurélie comes from the world of image, visual and style, me from theater and modern art. Aurélie loves colors, materials, design, I love poetry, art and spectacle. We love the elegance of the body, the music, the dance, the sensuality and the Dolce Vita. 

We really wanted to dare together, to speak in Fashion with our sensitivity, our culture and our free gaze.

It took time but with a little nerve, desire, curiosity and work ... we learned. 

We wanted a brand of shoes that were really very comfortable, light and flexible to dance the night away. And the day too.

We therefore called on various professional dancers for the development: classical dance, tango, flamenco, salsa.

We had a good laugh but… what an obstacle course: sublimate an outfit with high heels and keep the comfort!

Comfort is for us the real secret of elegance. Being well in your body to be well in your head, there is no longer any question of suffering in order to be beautiful!

So we started by traveling all over Italy in search of a workshop that could meet our aspirations 100%. Then one day ... in the Milan area, almost by magic, we met Gianni, our craftsman and guardian angel. Thanks to him everything could finally begin.

Cabeceo is a reality today.

It is a colorful and very feminine brand made up of essential and timeless models. We like simple and elegant lines. Like a lightness that dances to the rhythm of colors and the joy of living ...

A brand synonymous with celebration, sensuality and dance.
