Play, explore, be adventurous, with all these happening, there is one that we can rely on and that our flip flops. Havaianas made sure that we can do all this things without a need to worry about.
Havaianas, the world's favorite flip-flops brand, is coming out with three fun and youthful designs for the Filipinas 2015 collection.
True to its nature of collaborating with world-class artists and brands like Mara Hoffman, Missoni, Valentino and our very own Francis Libiran for last year's Filipinas collection, three young Filipino artists worked with Havaianas to bring you Lakbay, Lasap and Laro. "The big idea for Filipinas 2015 was to collaborate with young Filipino artists, true to the brand's direction to constantly evolve and renew the customer experience while still evoking some feeling of nostalgia" said Anne Gonzalez, Managing Director of Havaianas Philippines.
Over the past years, the Filipinas collection has brought Filipino culture to every colorful pair of Havaianas flip-flops. And this 2015, the brand is excited to bring you the special collection that will serve as a reminder that it is truly more fun in the Philippines.
The Havaianas Filipinas 2015 collection will feature three flip-flop designs inspired by the original artworks of Abbey Sy, Alessandra Lanot and Patrick Cabral. Lakbay.
Abbey Sy brought to life the thrill that comes with exploring the motherland. She makes use of words and iconic images that make you want to hop on to the next plane, boat, and yes, even jeepney to take you to a one of a kind adventure. Her knack for creating travel diaries was her main jumping point for this concept. After all, she believes that good flip-flops will take you to great places. Lasap. Filipinos' love for flavorful food is portrayed in Alessandra Lanot's classy black and metallic flip-flops.
For the young watercolor artist, it's the simple things that make people happy, much like Filipino delicacies that are uncomplicated but simply delicious! This pair will definitely make you crave for the mouth-watering goodness of sorbetes - in a cone, cup or even pandesal. Laro.
Creative digital artist Patrick Cabral features the nostalgic feel of the classic Pinoy childhood in this collection. Let his pair take you back to the good ol' days to reminisce the thrill of playing Pinoy games like Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Agawan Base or even Bato Bato Pik. Patrick's design is a reminder for all kids and kids at heart to never lose their inner child.
Each pair comes in a drawstring knapsack making it the perfect gift this Holiday season. Whether you’re halfway across the world or just around the country, the Havaianas Filipinas 2015 collection will definitely help you remember that there is no place like the Philippines.
The Havaianas Filipinas 2015 collection will be available in December at select Havaianas retailers nationwide for only Php 1,195.
