"Flip flops" or "Slops" as we say in South Africa are a vital fashion accessory today, as you can buy a pair in every colour under the sun! They are also not confined to wearing to the beach or just around the house.....but can be worn nowadays to almost every type of occasion.The most famous brand on sale in South Africa through several retailers are havaianas!
Havaianas were born in Brazil in 1962 and the first pair was inspired by the Zori a typical Japanese sandal made of fabric straps and rice straw soles. It is for this reason that the soles of all havaianas have a textured rice pattern,one of its unmistakable features. Havaianas later expanded their range to include men's, kids and even a baby collection!
On Wednesday 24th October a new stand alone store will open in the Gateway theatre of Shopping.. on the 1st floor, next to the new location of the iStore.
My baby pink pair are looking a little "worse for wear" after several years, so I will be off next week to check out which style and colour to buy next....I have visited their website and there are soooo many colours to choose from I may have to buy more than one pair....
My favourite designs are "Grace" "Slim Kokeshi" & 'Fit".
The havaianas website has a cool interactive page under "havaianas Mania" where you can create your own screensaver or wallpaper. It's called Havaianas Ink...give it a try as its really fun!
