Havaianas, the fabulous flip-flops (that I have at least three pairs of, btw), has joined forces with Threadless.com, the online community-based t-shirt company, to create a collection of limited edition sandals for summer 2010. The project officially launched in mid-July with six designs from original artwork submitted and voted on by the Threadless community. Using the ever-increasingly popular method of crowdsourcing, Threadless received over 600 design submissions from designers around the world with the winning artists being: Farhan Hassan from Singapore, Alvaro Arteaga Sabaini from Chile, Josh Perkins from Arizona, Jess Fink from New York, Ross Zietz from Chicago, and Emmy Cicierega from Massachusetts to form the complete limited edition collection. The way the designs translate from the tees to the body of the flip-flop just looks so artistic and cool – I received a pair of Farhan’s designs, and just love them! Which one is your favorite? You can buy the tee or the flip-flop (or both!): check out all the designs here.
