A collaboration of Australian fashion and Brazilian beach culture.
In October of 2012, iconic sandle brand Havaianas teamed up with sass x bide designers, Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke to create a limited edition sass & bide x Havaianas style, entitled ‘Brazil Brazil’. The womenswear designers have transformed the classic Havaianas thong with their signature use of print and embellishment. The slim style features a grey and black cheetah print and is adorned with the trademark sass & bide gold star charm, which is a symbol of Heidi and Sarah-Jane’s enduring friendship and love.
Both brands embrace a free-spirited approach to design, take inspiration from tribal sources and draw influences from the natural world – therefore a collaboration was obviously a good fit from the start. Sarah-Jane said of the collaboration: “Brazilians and Australians share a love of all things summer, that’s why we felt the partnership was a beautiful match. We’re excited to start the summer with Havaianas.”
The release of the sass & bide x Havaianas limited edition style coincides with the footwear brand’s global 50th anniversary. Priced at $49.95, the sandals are currently available form the Havaianas online boutique, all sass & bide stores throughout Australian, as well as on the sass & bide online store.
