When the iconic Brazilian flip-flops meets the maison’s aesthetic
In 1962 the first pair of Havaianas was born, inspired by the traditional Japanese sandalwood. It was the seventies when Yves Saint Laurent dressed women with animal prints and the world looked shocked. What if the iconic Brazilian flip flops meets the aesthetics of the French fashion house today led by Anthony Vaccarello? A zebra-striped flip-flop is born! White and black, with total black strips. Available exclusively at Saint Laurent Rive Droite, the Parisian concept store opened in the former Colette headquarters.
P.S: It was 1967, when the restless genius Yves created a collection inspired by Africa: “Bambara”. A series of mini-dresses in strong colors, with wooden beads and shells, raffia hoods and ebony jewelry. Completed the following year from the first Saharan Africa and the first jumpsuit. Forerunner, always.
