Havaianas Local Soul Project for Summer 2019

The Havaianas local soul project is about giving local artists in 3 locations, Ibiza, Tel Aviv and Mykonos, the chance to use Havaianas as a canvas to showcase their design and inspiration.

The brand will be taking over a beach venue in each place for the whole summer to bring a touch of Brazil to the Mediterranean, with a special music session each week, and one very special headline event in each location over the summer. 

All 3 locations have been chosen because of their vibrant landscapes and atmosphere, their beach location and their cool vibes. 

These 6 pairs (2 per location) are only available to buy from a selected retailer in either Ibiza, Tel Aviv or Mykonos – so if you are lucky enough to be visiting these special places over the summer one of these could be an exclusive reminder of your trip!
