Havaianas and Saint Laurent Bring The Classic Flip-flop Into The Wild
Flip-flops are slowly becoming a permanent part of everyone’s daily looks as they have been seen donning the feet of the most stylish people of the fashion industry and beyond!
With Havaianas collaborating with Saint Laurent in coming up with possibly the chicest yet wildest update to this much-loved outdoor wardrobe staple, it seems like flip-flops have definitely found its footing in the fashion industry.
Saint Laurent fashion house is distinctly known for a lot of things: classic black satin trimmed tuxedo jackets, extremely high platform shoes, tiny sequin dresses with shoulder pads, and high-quality leather bags so recognisable that they don’t even need to etch their branding onto the leather in gold.
Meanwhile, Havaianas is known for transforming this typical working-class fashion-items into a trendy and chic footwear staple that can be worn not only on summer days but everyday.
Anthony Vaccarello, the creative director of Saint Laurent, recently displayed the brand’s Spring Summer 20 men’s collection in Malibu and it was wild (featuring whimsical pops of animal print)! In partnership with the leading Brazilian footwear label, both brands went with a monochromatic, zebra print pattern for the collab. The French luxury fashion house gave the classic summer flip-flop a high-end transformation featuring their logo while Havaianas provided the utmost comfort and quality evident in every pair they produce.
The design is a fitting selection for Saint Laurent since the brand tends to stick to sleek, minimalist colour palettes and monochrome print. Despite Havaianas usual penchant for pops of contrasting colours this slipper features a rubber upper in all black which gives the flip-flop an overall streamlined, stylish, and a high-fashion vibe.
Their sophisticated yet outdoorsy take on this classic footwear can be styled with sharply-tailored blazer, tank top, and relaxed trousers for a polished effect or wear them with a simple sundress for a fun, summery vibe. Available in just one design, zebra printed rubber sole and a black strap, the stylish flip-flops is part of the collection’s exclusive accessories range. It’s up for grabs in Saint Laurent Paris Rive Droite exclusively in France.
