About us

Two Austrian girls who came to bring back the retro-vibes of the past dog days of summer - with awesome road-trip-clothes and hand-picked Bohemian accessories. Just for you.

Founded in Graz/Austria by two nineteen-year-old girls, Dogdays Of Summer is a really small and totally new startup with focus on vintage clothes, beautiful shoes and accessories for men and women. Our assignment is to give everyone the chance to wear clothes they adore with a clear conscience.

We believe in amazing vintage clothes and lots of love for you and our planet. So we pick our garments carefully (we would love to wear every single item!) and pay attention to the way they got produced before they came to us. Because of that you'll find a lot of articles produced in Europe (Italy, France, Germany, Austria) and things out of natural materials (wool, cotton, leather).

You can see: Dogdays of Summer is not only a Good-Looking-Clothing-project, but also a Don't-Waste-Our-Planet-Approach with an eye on how to avoid prodigality.
All our clothes and accessories were here before and didn't only get produced for our shop. Nearly every single item is vintage - so older than twenty years - but at least everything is second-hand and something special to us.

So look around and take what you adore. We promise to do our best to bring it to you as soon as possible because also our customers are close to our heart as they help us giving our clothes a second life and home.

Vintage - What is it?

If they hear the word "vintage", many people do not know what to expect. They ask us: "What do you mean with that? What is it?"
Explaining that is not the easiest thing. You could say "Second-hand clothing that is older than twenty years". This is also, how we start our explanation. But there is much more to it than meets the eye.
Vintage also means something special to us, something unique. The pieces are hand-picked, not often seen and matchless. They have kind of a collector’s value and aren’t the simple, white tee from the shop around the corner.
We collect these pieces and bring them to you through our website. We try to have a wide range of things that everybody has the chance to find his or her special piece. The one vintage thing they do not have yet.
