Havaianas and Dolce & Gabbana Collaborate on Luxe Flip-Flop Collection

Brazil's Havaianas has partnered with the Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana to bring a fresh twist to their classic flip-flops
June 11, 2024

When it comes to summer shoe essentials, Vogue editors often deliberate between high-fashion choices like The Row’s Ginza thongs, Hermès’s Chypre sandals, or Chanel’s “Dad” sandals. Yet, a simple pair of rubber Havaianas flip-flops frequently tops their list. These “Made in Brazil” flip-flops, with their effortless charm and sporty minimalism, embody the essence of summer – picture salty toes, breezy white dresses, and casual shorts.

Havaianas have long been the favored summer footwear for celebrities. From Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian in the early 2000s to Jennifer Lopez, who loves trading her high heels for these ergonomic sandals while exploring the Amalfi Coast, Havaianas have consistently been a symbol of understated allure.

This summer, the iconic Brazilian brand takes a stylish leap forward with an exciting collaboration. Havaianas has partnered with the Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana to bring a fresh twist to their classic flip-flops.

Dolce & Gabbana, renowned for their opulent and vibrant designs, have infused their signature flair into the beloved Havaianas, creating four new prints: zebra, leopard, majolica-glazed pottery, and the ornate patterns of Sicilian carts. In a luxurious update, these flip-flops feature a printed velvet finish instead of the traditional rubber, adding a touch of extravagance to a summer staple.

As summer approaches, this collaboration between Havaianas and Dolce & Gabbana promises to elevate the seasonal wardrobe with the perfect blend of casual comfort and high fashion.
