Flip-flops could be a comfortable footwear choice for your day to day. But for the especially style-conscious, the only acceptable places to slide them on are at home, the beach, or a nail salon. They argue that flip-flops are a fashion faux pas; wearing them makes an otherwise put together outfit appear casual, sloppy, and old-fashioned. The latest collaboration between Havaianas and Saint Laurent, however, are well worth considering.
Havaianas is a leading flip flop brand from Brazil that transformed a once typical working-class shoe into a trendy footwear staple. Every pair they produce puts style, function, and fun above all. Moreover, Havaianas consistently strives to give consumers utmost comfort and quality at an affordable price point.
Such is evident in the limited edition sandals they created with Saint Laurent. “Creative Director of Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello has developed the label into one synonymous with impeccable tailoring and a distinctly skinny silhouette,” said a representative of the brand’s marketing team in the Philippines.
Available in Saint Laurent Paris Rive Droite in France, the pair features a classic black rubber strap attached to a zebra-printed insole and monochromatic black outsole. “Vaccarello recently showed the brand’s Spring Summer 20 men’s collection in Malibu and it seems he’s been inspired by the beach,” they added. “The monochrome, zebra print which is part of the SS20 collection’s exclusive accessories range, has given the summer flip-flop a high-end transformation featuring the French fashion house’s logo.”
Its bold design is timeless enough to not only compliment clothes, but to be worn anytime—from a morning stroll to a chill afternoon with friends. “Style them with a sharply-tailored blazer, tank top, and relaxed trousers for a polished effect or pair them with your favorite sundress for a fun, summery vibe,” they suggested.
