Macy’s, the U.S. chain of mid- to high-range department stores, teamed up with our favorite flipflop brand to bring indigenous flare to the stores’ “Journey to Brasil” initiative this spring. Celebrating the culture and spirit of Brazil, Havaianas will create signature windows in three of Macy’s flagship locations, an exclusive pair of sandals and allow Macy’s consumers to enjoy the special “Make Your Own Havaianas” activation.

On May 14th, Havaianas will unveil their first-ever window installation for Macy’s. Designed by the famous Brazilian agency Criacitta, the installations were inspired by the heart pumping euphoria of Rio and the carefree spirit of Brazil.  The windows will be on display at Macy’s flagship locations in New York, San Francisco and Chicago until June 1st.
