If you need proof that the once-humble flip-flop has found a firm footing in fashion, well then, how about the fact that Saint Laurent is teaming up with Havaianas for the second year running? As part of the Maison’s Rive Droite concept, the two labels have put their heads together once more and come up with a chic take on the casual design: in leopard print.
At a time when a lot of us are seeking comfortable, fuss-free pieces to wear at home, Saint Laurent’s latest collaboration hits the proverbial nail on the head — although you could probably wear this pair for a stroll along Orchard Road too. And when we all start travelling again, you can toss these babies in your suitcase for that long-awaited beachside getaway.
Dappled with tonal brown leopard spots (mimicking Anthony Vaccarello’s ready-to-wear range), the flip-flops are crafted in Havaianas’ proprietary rubber blend, and paired with matte black straps. What’s more, you can snap up a pair for yourself at just $65 (approximately SGD 89) in the Saint Laurent Rive Droite stores in Paris and Los Angeles, or online at ysl.com.
