I love havaianas myself, but it's just funny to me how they have become such a fashion hit in the US and Europe...! I mean, i've been wearing them since i was 5, and so has every brazilian, rich and (very) poor. They are the commonest footwear in Brasil, and
cheaper to buy there than when they are exported to the rich countries. I must say i had a chuckle when i saw them being sold in Selfridges in London at those ridiculous prices. I don't know... Don't want to offend anyone here, but to me it's all just very ironic and wierd!
I guess you could call it an incredibly clever marketing move from the company of havaianas!
On another note.. My cousin is bringing me the flowery pink ones from Brasil, can't wait! cute and comfortable!
Didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective.
