Territorio Havaianas


Curated by renowned fashion entrepreneur Maria Kastani, who explains “Havaianas is a brand I love and support fully. They care, love and appreciate all humans and their colourful creations are a catalyst for happiness. Women for Women International is a truly wonderful charity that cares and supports marginalised women in countries affected by war and conflict. They have helped almost half a million women rebuild their lives and given them hope, skills and knowledge to support themselves, families and their communities. I wanted to bring those two organisations together based on my mutual admiration on what they both stand for: love, kindness, support, vision, hope, happiness, will and creative spirit.”
Brazilian lifestyle brand, Havaianas, has launched an exciting collaboration with some of the world’s most influential creative's this summer – which will see pieces of art inspired by the iconic flip flop brand auctioned off to raise funds for global charity Women for Women International.

Alice Temperley, Aquazzura, Arizona Muse, Charlotte Olympia, Christian Louboutin, DSQUARED2, Manolo Blahnik, Mary Katrantzou, Naomi Campbell, Nicholas Kirkwood, Simone Rocha, Stephen Jones and Swarovski are amongst the artists to create bespoke one-off art pieces for this great cause. Funds raised by the auction of the Havaianas artworks will help Women for Women International to continue their admirable and wonderful journey to keep supporting marginalised women survivors of war. The charity helps women earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support.

Brita Fernandez Schmidt, Executive Director UK, Women for Women International describes “At Women for Women International we truly value creative and innovative partnerships and that is why I am delighted to be collaborating with Maria Kastani and Havaianas. I am deeply grateful to Maria, whose passion and commitment to raising the voices of women, who are normally not heard, is inspiring. It is thanks to her leadership that we will be celebrating the imaginative, colourful and inspiring creations that have been made for this campaign. We know that the awareness and money raised through this collaboration will support women survivors of war rebuild their lives in some of the most dangerous places in the world. I am so grateful to Maria and Havaianas for their wonderful support of our work.”

Merel Werners, Marketing Director EMEA, Havaianas says “Havaianas is happy and proud to team up with Women for Women International and the amazing designers who have been doing an incredible job in creating pieces of art inspired by our iconic flip flops. The result is fantastic and we are super excited to raise a lot of money for the charity.”

These bespoke pieces of art will be auctioned online to raise funds for Women for Women International. The auction website will officially launch on 1st July 2017 and more information can be found at www.havaianas.com.
