23 June 2012, Singapore – “The Missoni ♥ Havaianas Collection” was first launched in April last year. This year “The Missoni ♥ Havaianas Collection” returns with a mission to contribute and care for the environment. They are made of residual rubber pieces from the manufacturing process and are mixed to create the unique sole and signature Missoni zigzag patterns.
“For Missoni, the relationship with nature has always been a priority. Living and working closely in touch with the natural landscapes have inspired us to capture the seasons and its changing colours into our designs. At the same time, Havaianas is firmly concerned about reducing waste, re-using and recycling of materials. With this collaboration, it’s indeed a perfect match of both our passions: fashion and respect for nature,” said Angela Missoni, Creative Director of Missoni.
The collection is presented in a Missoni knit bag and is available in two styles – Slim (Missoni Slim Rachel) and Top (Missoni Top Fiammato and Top Patchwork). The Missoni Top Fiammato/Top Patchwork is retailing at S$69.90 while the Missoni Slim Rachel at S$89.90.
