Em­brace sum­mer nos­tal­gia wher­ever your flip-flops take you

Northern Living - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Imag­ine your­self sip­ping fresh co­conut juice while walk­ing by the sea, with the sun warm­ing your face, and soft sand be­neath your feet.

Sum­mer liv­ing may seem like an elu­sive fan­tasy to city dwellers with tight sched­ules that keep them locked within the metro. But what if there was a way to take the beach with you any­where, any­time?

Live the eter­nal va­cay vibe with a pair of Hava­ianas, the world’s fa­vorite flip-flops brand. Its lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion with young and vi­brant Filipino fash­ion la­bel Neon Is­land, is just the thing to make you live your sum­mer dream.

Known for its quirky take on hand-drawn trop­i­cal prints and retro aes­thetic, Neon Is­land was founded in 2013 by best friends Aira Me­d­ina and Chi Gibbs. With its 100 per­cent Philip­pine­made pieces that match the life­style of the fun, mod­ern, con­fi­dent, and ad­ven­tur­ous woman, this in­de­pen­dent la­bel has worked with some of the coun­try’s top brands for spe­cial col­lec­tions, and now adds a global com­pany to that list.

“Neon Is­land Hava­ianas is a match made in heaven!” Me­d­ina says of the col­lab­o­ra­tion, adding that she had al­ways hoped to see Neon Is­land prints fea­tured on Hava­ianas flip-flops.

“Aira and Chi’s col­or­ful and en­er­getic ap­proach per­fectly suits Hava­ianas, and we are very happy to be col­lab­o­rat­ing with them,” adds Hava­ianas Philip­pines ex­clu­sive dis­trib­u­tor, Anne Gon­za­lez.

The lim­ited edi­tion col­lec­tion comes in Hava­ianas’ well-loved sil­hou­ettes, and fea­tures punchy prints that look great no mat­ter the des­ti­na­tion. Af­firms Gibbs, “We’d def­i­nitely wear both pairs to the beach, but they are per­fect for the city and for pool­side loung­ing as well.”

Both styles evoke sum­mer nos­tal­gia: The Top style comes in black, mak­ing Neon Is­land’s Fiz­zle­pop print stand out, while Slim high­lights the con­trast be­tween the fash­ion la­bel’s ec­cen­tric Aurora print and the soft­ness of pinks and golds. A spe­cially de­signed bag com­ple­ments both pairs, round­ing off the per­fect trop­i­cal look while help­ing you tote your stuff in style.

Neon Is­land Hava­ianas are must-haves for those who want to live in sun­shine, no mat­ter the sea­son. Neon Is­land Hava­ianas flip-flops, re­tail price at Php 1, 399 for Top, and Php1, 499 for Slim. Avail­able at Hava­, Rus­tan’s (Ala­bang Town Cen­ter Gate­way, Makati, and Shangri-La Plaza), Com­monThread (Greenbelt 5 and Power Plant Mall), and se­lect All Flip-Flops
