In 2011, Missoni met Havaianas?and they fell in love. Their first collaboration sold out within 24 hours after hitting the Havaianas website (Missoni has plenty of practice at this, of course: hello Target!), and this summer, the duo has teamed up again for their second partnership, which launches in June. Titled the Missoni ? Havaianas Collection, the range will feature four unisex styles and is being billed as "eco-friendly." The collection is made out of leftover rubber pieces from the manufacturing process, and the (no doubt zig-zaggy) packaging is made of recyclable material, too. Phase 2 of the Missoni ? Havaianas Collection will be available at Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, all Missoni shops, and on Havaianas' website. Fingers crossed that this time those who want to buy them online actually CAN buy them online.
