Matthew Williamson Teams With Havaianas, But Not On A Pair Of Flip Flops
August 29, 2012
British fashion designer Matthew Williamson is no stranger to collaborations – in 2009, his collaboration with H&M was one for the books and just last year he teamed with Macy’s for a limited-edition capsule – but this time he’s joining forces with the south. Well, sort of: Williamson has created two pairs of brightly colored (I’m talking turquoise-green and peacock-patterned) pairs of rain boots in conjunction with Brazilian footwear brand Havaianas’ 50th anniversary for fall 2012. Did I mention they’re ah-dorable?
“I’m drawn to the way Havaianas capture playfulness and light-heartedness in their products – there is clearly an element of fun,” the designer told Vogue UK. “I wanted to embrace this sensibility in the rain boots and so chose prints that were whimsical without being kitsch.”
While Havaianas might be best known for the wear-with-anything flip flops, Williamson said he’s practically an expert in guarding off the rain. Besides, a girl can always use an extra pair of rain boots, especially peacock-patterned ones! Both pairs retail for $134.66.
