IPE AND HAVAIANAS WORKING FOR BIODIVERSITY

Who doesn't think 'colour, light and music' when talking about Brazil? For many, it's the place on Earth that best evokes a whirlwind of colours just when one utters its name. And Brazil does indeed overflow with light from every corner.

One of the main culprits for these spectacular colours is the Amazon forest. Brazil is the country with the largest Amazonian jungle surface in the world. This makes it a unique country. That's why we work with the Institute for Ecological Research of Brazil (Instituto de Investigación Ecológica de Brasil: IPÊ) on Brazilian conservation and biodiversity. We give 7% of the benefits of this collection towards the conservation and biodiversity actions of the institute.

This year, we had the help of a high profile collaborator: a cool dude who turns everything he touches into gold. It's Arlin Graff and, for those of you who don't know him, we have to say he's a pro.

Arlin is an urban artist who specialises in graffiti art. He has painted murals halfway around the world and has worked with global brands to decorate their buildings. He depicts the immense colours of his native Brazil in formidable works of art, using geometric shapes and converting them into spectacular murals with an unmistakable style. And we love them!

He will be painting a huge mural of one of his designs for the Havaianas IPE colleciton in Lisbon between the 6th and 14th May in Alges – come by and see him in action! Or follow @havaianaseurope on Instagram for live updates

His Works of art decorate the urban landscape of places as far afield as the Canadian Subarctic region, São Paulo or Detroit. What's more, he also shares his artwork indoors on some of the most representative buildings of several cities around the world.

And now, it's possible to carry Arlin Graff's cheerful happy spirit around wherever you go! The artist has designed a collection of flip-flops featuring some of the most emblematic animals of Brazil's fauna, using his unmistakable geometric shapes to give your feet some colour this summer. The result is spectacular!

Now you have two reasons to get yourself a pair out of the Havaianas feat. Arlin Graff collection: you're helping a great cause and you'll look really cool with every step you take. Get ready because the summer is just around the corner and this collection will be there to follow you around, adding a touch of colour and originality to everything you do. It's about being original, from top to toe!

Which are you favourites? Get a pair and also help Brazilian conservation and biodiversity: together we will make this work! Let's be positive!
