Ballet dancer Daniil Kolmin puts our slippers to the test.
When Daniil Kolmin, a professional ballet dancer and fashion influencer, got in touch to discuss a collaboration that involved a unique video interpretation of our slippers, we simply had to say ‘Da!’
Following in the footsteps of his father, also a professional dancer, Siberian-born Kolmin has toured the globe, performing with numerous dance companies and taking on roles ranging from Don Quixote to Depeche Mode. Currently a soloist at Serbia’s National Theatre in Belgrade, he also sidelines as a guest teacher at ballet schools around the world.
“Fashion has always been a very important part of my life, especially in a profession where how I look is tantamount to success. Donhall & Bell footwear is unique and beautifully crafted, but also quite classic – like ballet! So I wanted to wear the shoes, play around with them, and create something iconic, that people would remember. Luxury is a feeling; loving what you wear can bring you confidence in your everyday life. It’s not about what you wear, it’s about finding which style makes you feel like you!”
