It’s summer and summer means it’s MYOH season! This coming May 2 to 5, let your imagination shine and create your own pair of Havs. Yay!
If you haven’t been to MYOH, like, ever… MYOH is the most anticipated time of the year for Havaianaticos to mix and match their soles and straps and add some embellishments here and there to make their own pretty pair of Havs. I’ve been an MYOH follower since 2010. And I love my MYOH pairs. Actually, I don’t really buy from stores, the Havs I keep are all from MYOH events.
Traditionally, Make Your Own Havaianas features a commemorative pair that best visualizes the theme for the year. This year, the brand launches its first-ever collaboration with a Filipino Illustrator and Havaianatico, Dan Matutina, who is renowned for his unique visual mix of handmade and digital, clean and dirty, and old and modern aesthetics.’ With his love for combining colors with different textures and shapes to tell a story, and the thrill and vibrancy inherent to Havaianas, it was no fluke how this collaboration took place between the two.
Introducing this year’s theme for Make Your Own Havaianas—“Imagination.” This cute pair, “Dan Matutina + Havaianas,” will be the first glow-in-the-dark MYOH commemorative pair with carbon blue sole and showing two spacemen with space markers connecting the stars to form images—representing how Havaianas invites each and everyone to let loose their creativity brought about by their boundless imagination.
So if you’re looking for a new pair of Havs, this is the great time to get one. Have your own Havs made, according to your likeness. See you there!
