New York Fashion Week was taken to a whole different level when the Spring 2011 line introduced scuba dandy and aesthetic fashion designer Michael Bastian and his new, limited-edition range of flip flops for Havaianas. Enough of the clothes prancing down the runway who always seem to steal the limelight. This Spring 2011 theme will make us wish that summer will forever be seasonless as shirtless men in tiny shorts and open shirts (gah!) were seen sporting The Michael Bastian + Havaianas Collection.
The Michael Bastian + Havaianas Collection features four styles inspired by two distinct motifs that are featured prominently in his Spring 2011 Men’s Collection—deep sea exploration and an exclusive leopard/camouflage pattern. The jungle inspiration comes out in an exclusive leopard camouflage print featured in two colors—military olive and slate gray.“I’ve always been a big admirer of Havaianas,” said Michael Bastian. ‘’They’ve become a global brand by focusing on one thing, but doing it simply and perfectly. It’s a real honor and incredibly fun to have this chance to work together.”
Afonso Sugiyama, president of Havaianas USA. “Michael Bastian has a unique talent to infuse fresh perspectives into our classic sandal design, and we are very excited to work with him. This collaboration will be a highlight of our renewed Men’s line.”
After his GANT by Michael Bastian for Fall 2010, Michael Bastian, who used to be the men’s fashion director for Bergdorf and Goodman for five years definitely shared a passion with Havaianas for casual luxury with four new limited edition flip-flops. The collection, priced at $48, will hit stores in March 2011 – just in time for a little vacation, perhaps some scuba diving and six packs!
