I came home with my commemorative pair of Make Your Own Havaianas 2010 in its 5th year and jetsetted to several airport terminals in 2011 when I ended up with my pink sole and Eiffel tower pins in Make Your Own Havaianas 2011. This year, Havaianas once again will be celebrating 50 years with us of Summer and Style with Havaianas Celebrates Golden Anniversary in MYOH 2012!



This year, Havaianas will take you through a colorful and exciting tour back to where it all started. As the brand celebrates its 50th anniversary, Make Your Own Havaianas 2012 is geared to be the most special one yet. Havaianas will let you experience this through Make Your Own Havaianas’ exhibit. The Havaianas story is told through a blaze of color and fashion, showing how Havaianas paved the way for flip-flops to become a respected style statement the world over.

50 Is the New Chic

Only the best things—and brands—age gracefully. Fifty colorful years have passed, yet Havaianas has remained the flip-flop of choice for most of the laid-back fashion lovers across the globe, as the brand has always stood for things that make them happy—summer, style and good memories.

From August 2 to August 5, SM City Cebu Northwing Atrium will house its grandest Make Your Own Havaianas CEBU yet. Express “you” and tell your own story by mixing and matching candy colored soles and straps and embellishing these with this year’s special pins that characterize the Havaianas heritage – from the happiness, 1962, Brasilipinas and soccer ball or opt for one that spells something about you with personality pins such as letters, aviators, crystals, crowns and more. It’s the ultimate act depicting freedom of choice and whichever style choices you make, what colors and combinations you choose, it will be a statement expressing who you are– and who you are is unlike any other.  Tag all your Havaianas tweets and Instagram photos with #myohcebu2012

For each pair you purchase that is embellished with a Happiness pin, you donate Php 100 to Operation Smile, a charity organization for children that provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe.
