Flip-flop meets zigzag in Missoni X Havaianas collaboration

Havianas X Missoni

We finally have some more details about the upcoming collaboration between Italian fashion house Missoni (whose Converse collaboration hit stores this time last year) and Brazilian sandal label Havaianas (which co-branded a cool camouflage pair for menswear designer Michael Bastian a few seasons ago).

Due to hit select Havaianas retailers and Missoni boutiques across the country (and the Havaianas website) in early May, the limited-edition collection will include two women's sandal styles, one unisex sandal and one style of women's espadrille, sell for $60 to $130, and come packaged in a crocheted shoe bag that incorporates the colors of both the Brazilian and Italian flags.

I don't know if the United Nations has a gift shop, but if it does, these would definitely be a shoe-in.
