It may have nothing to do with the theme itself. It could be to do with the hosting package or other features. You should contact the author of the theme and ask them

It’s most likely your hosting. Magento is a beast to run and requires a fast server.

Hosting capable of managing Magento’s resources is important, but it only goes so far.

A badly written frontend can completely train-wreck site performance. There is plenty that an inexperienced (or uncaring) developer can do to make a site look pretty but load like a tortoise. The only fix is doing your homework before choosing a theme, or hiring someone to fix the poor decisions.

If Magento runs smoothly when you remove the theme, then that’s probably what you’ll need to do.

removing the theme, the shop is excellent. http://www.jeanjoluvierluthieria.com.br/ initially found the template beautiful, but left the store very heavy even.

Well, the site is hilariously large: 205 HTTP requests, 5.0 MB, and 48.9 seconds to load.

Looking at the assets, half the blame is on the theme for being bloated with jQuery scripts but the other half is on you. Almost 3.5 MB is just from images.
