Territorio Havaianas


This summer the beaches are channelling the Golden Age of Hollywood. And we have the perfect capsule collection to capture this trend thanks to the Charlotte Olympia x Havaianas collection. The wonderful Charlotte explains a little more about the collaboration....

How did the two brands come together?
I have been wearing Havaianas since I was little and it has always been a brand I wanted to work with; it was exciting to incorporate my own designs into a timeless classic.

How are the brands similar?
Both brands celebrate timeless design and enjoy colour and being playful with product.

What drives inspiration and designs?
So many things inspire me; from places, people, art, movies to fabrics, textures and colours. Most importantly I like to give my collections a mood, a soul and a story. I love collecting beautiful things and I translate this by transforming everyday objects into something wearable. I am constantly collecting ideas whether it's for a current collection or saving them to develop for future projects. I would describe my designs as colourful, feminine nostalgic with a touch of humour. The 1940s and 50s are a bygone era that I am nostalgic for and play a huge part on the sensibility of the brand.

In terms of shoes, the flip flop is one of the oldest designs in history how does it feel to have your own collection with Havaianas?

Being half Brazilian Havaianas have always been a staple when on holiday. I am so excited to be able to add my creative stamp to a classic summer favourite.

Who is the woman you are targeting with this collection of flip flops?
I love to dress for women who share my motto of ‘dressing from the feet up’. I am excited to share my collection with women all over the world who want to add a touch of glamour, femininity and playfulness to their beachside outfit.

What are the big trends for us to look out for for our summer 2016 wardrobes?
For My SS16 collection I am revisiting my love of leopard print, expect to see a lot of it!

What do you wear all summer?
I love to wear little dresses that I can dress up or down with a pair of shoes, feminine pieces that work well with flip flops by day or a pair of heels by night.

The Charlotte Olympia x Havaianas models are available now!
