I mean, and Australian summer just isn’t an Australian summer without a good pair of thongs. Havaianas has teamed up with Australian Print Masters We Are Handsome to create two limited edition styles for summer, Dalliance and Xerxes. Following on from popular international collaborations with powerhouse brands like Missoni, Valentino and Charlotte Olympia, this is the first Australian led international collaboration for Havaianas.

Elle Turner, Aqueo Marketing Director, Havaianas exclusive distributor, said, “We Are Handsome are the ultimate purveyors of chic swimwear and active wear, and we are thrilled to have them on board for our first international collaboration led by Australia.” “By combining their beautiful designs with our much-loved thongs, we’ve created the perfect summer style and the ultimate Christmas gift for 2016.” The Dalliance and Xerxes thongs also match a line of active wear and swimwear within We Are Handsome’s 2016/17 summer range. Jeremy Somers, Founder & Creative Director, We are Handsome, said, “Katinka and I are incredibly excited to join forces with Havaianas and bring Australians a fresh twist on one of their favourite summer essentials.” The Havaianas x We Are Handsome styles will be available in female sizes for $49.99. Presale will begin on 21 November from www.havaianasaustralia.com.au, before hitting participating retailers on 1 December.

Available first in Australia from 21 November, the styles will then be sold in the US, Brazil, New Zealand, The Philippines and Thailand.
