Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy and Laura Mercier worked closely with the Havaiana’s team to create three very special pairs of flip flops, limited edition season must-haves in fact!
I’m constantly amazed by the trickling in of Brazilian influence on international style and culture. Now you may be thinking, flip flops are that important? yes, they are the icons of footwear, I’ve never met a Brazilian who didn’t have them. I seriously never, ever in a trillion years imagined the Havaiana’s I loved and left with no regard in Brazil would get designer attention some day abroad. But they are getting just that AND being sold in Saks Fifth Avenue and Saks.com (now there’s a link you don’t see everyday!)
I can’t help but find them strange bedfellows for some reason but I’m a sucker for charity and I’m thrilled about Havaiana’s success! I also love the fact that the proceeds of the sale go to charity water. The price point,$15, is great because it’s reasonable and attainable for many people. For those of you that have never tried Havaiana’s for some reason, you’ve got to, limited edition or not, they are thin but bouncy… I love mine and can walk for miles in them.
Here are some excerpts from the press release…
“Bobbi Brown created a pair that reflects the spirit of summer- keeping it simple, enjoying every moment, and of course, and always looking fabulous in the process. “The beach is where I go to unwind with my family, so I keep things easy by wearing sunscreen, simple makeup and a fun pair of flip-flops.” (Julia are you getting these or what?)
“Trish McEvoy wanted to bring to her sandal design the feeling of a walk on the beach—her favorite way to relax. “My colors this season brighten your complexion and call to mind the deep blues of the ocean, the pearlescent shades inside a seashell, and the glitter of the sand-taking you on an instant vacation.”
Laura Mercier decided to fill her canvas with kisses showcasing the new lipstick shades in her summer assortment, saying “A comfortable sandal should be as comfortable as wearing the lipstick on your lips.”
