What a genius idea: Missoni Havainas. If you're going to wear flip flops, then why not wear the chicest possible ones? Havainas are Brazilian flip flops with colorful dynamic prints on their interiors, and now the Italian knitwear giant has teamed up for the second season with the summer shoe staple to create the only $70 Missoni one will ever find -- since Missoni for Target isn't coming back for the foreseeable future.
Their first exclusive line, out last summer, sold out within 24 hours of hitting the Havaianas website. FYI, there's also a kids' version for fifty bucks.
The chevron striped rainbow print shoes will be sold at Kitson on Robertson -- where else -- and on June 7, the store will have a soiree with Vogue Magazine, and one celebrity guest is Ashlee Simpson, for the launch. Harley Viera-Newton will DJ.
Missoni Havaianas will be available at Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, all Missoni shops, and www.us.havaianas.com in June 2012.
