missoni-havaianas.jpgLuxury brand Missoni has joined forces with high street favourite Havaianas to create a sizzling summer collection that conjures up an image of sun-drenched Brazilian beaches.

The stylish summer collection, which includes flip-flops and espadrilles, incorporates Missoni's signature zig-zag patterning and is inspired by Brazilian style and exuberance. Each pair comes in its own Missoni shoe bag, which is hand-made in Italy and includes the colours of both the Italian and Brazilian flags. 

We love these styles, which seem to merge the visual styling of the two cultures just perfectly, and can see them being a huge hit on beaches around the globe this summer.The limited edition bag is bound to be a particular draw, and I can imagine they'll be a chic ad handy carry-bag for sunglasses, cameras and other holiday essentials too.

The full collection will be available from April at The Shoe Studios, Selfridges and www.havaianas-store.com
