One of the strongest indications that a given item is a design classic is when it can be restyled in a seemingly infinite range of ways, while never losing what made it so iconic in the first place.
Here at IC Clothing, we are in no doubt that Havaianas can be placed in that category. Despite the abundance of imitations down the years, these legendary flip-flops remain nigh-on unmistakable, with their tough, but light and bouncy sole giving them real-world usefulness as well as style.
A shoe of astounding design versatility
It’s amazing to think that Havaianas have been around for well over 50 years now, and indeed, are well on their way to their 60th anniversary. It’s equally curious that a shoe that now seems utterly and quintessentially Brazilian was actually created by a Scotsman, Robert Fraser.
But hey, that’s a common theme throughout the Havaianas story. Just when you think you have them sussed, they suddenly show an incredible new level of versatility that you had never imagined before.
That was certainly the case back in 1969, when the usually blue and white flip-flops suddenly became available in green. Apparently, this only came about due to a production error, but Havaianas quickly recognised the commercial opportunity, and duly introduced brown, yellow and black pairs to the market.
Down the decades, in fact, Havaianas have been consistently re-interpreted and re-styled, including the launch of a version of the sandal with a small Brazilian flag on the strap. This ‘Brasil’ style, launched to coincide with the 1998 World Cup, became one of the brand’s best-selling variants.
Celebrated footwear, re-imagined for girls
Fast-forward to the 2010s, and the Havaianas brand has long established a reputation for keeping at the forefront of fashion, often in association with leading-edge designers.
In fact, the Summer 2018 range of catwalk-ready Havaianas is now available, including girls’ Havaianas in Freedom Lipstick Rose and Freedom Valley Rose styles that your little one is sure to adore.
