Havaianas is known for making the world’s best flip flop, straight from the beaches in Brazil and available worldwide. São Paulo, Brazil is the predominant city in the graffiti world with the largest number of works, and considered one of the top cities in the world to appreciate street art and Havaianas has found a way for you to sport some of this killer art. We are stoked about the union between Havaianas and urban art, and have these limited edition flip-flops with prints from 3 renowned graffiti artists: Highraff, Speto and Zezão. Havaianas are a must have for the summer months, whether paired with denim, your favorite boardshorts from Onia, Sundek or Olasul; or rocking shorts from Burkman Bros. Throw on your Ray-Bans or Persol shades and fill a Wm. J. Mills & Co. duffel with some tanks and Fred Perry polos and you’re ready for a rockin’ beach weekend.
With a strong graphic design influence, Highraff blends graffiti, illustration, cartoon language and psychedelic art, which results in organic forms with striking color combinations. His inspirations mainly come from natural forms such as the sun, moon, stars and plants.
Born in São Paulo, Speto is one of the artists responsible for the originality of Brazilian graffiti. He developed a unique style that carries hip hop elements and a strong influence of woodcut.
Zezão became famous for expressing his art in the sewer galleries in the city of São Paulo. It was a way of bringing color and life to forgotten places. During his career, he developed two types of art: the first remits to abstract calligraphy; the second employs abstract and colorful drawings.
GQ’s obsessed and so are we. Need new gear for the beach? Lightning Bolt offers great swim trunks and sick graphic tees and tanks emblazoned with the bolt and we’ve got a great stash to choose from. Pair ‘em with your favorite jeans, havaianas, some Burkman Bros. bracelets and killer shades and you’re good to go!
The Riviera Club label was conceived by Joe Sadler, Derek Buse and Greg Ullery on a golf course. The collection is infused with an unmistakable aura of west coolness. This spring is no different and references Palm Springs, California. We can’t wait to rock the Mira Mar Crew for those chilly nights on the beach and the guys are on the money with their Mutu Stripe shirt and perfect shorts.
Gant by Michael Bastian hits the surf and takes inspiration from ’70s kitsch—think the original Hawaii Five-0 or the Brady Bunch visits Hawaii. Call it a mash-up between East Coast ivy covered campuses and chilled-down island tropics. Who cares we can’t wait to get our hands on those red camo cargo shorts and the retro chest stripe windbreaker.
We coined the term WEAR WORLDWIDE here as Doug & Ben are always inspired by their travels. This season is no different and the locale this time is the island of Kaua’i. We say ALOHA and the bros have brought us a huge variety of tanks in colors and stripes, all cut to show off the results of your tropical rock climbing or simply hours in the gym. Pair those tanks with original jacquard, striped and printed shorts and arm yourself with a handful of bracelets and you’re ready for the tropics, the Hudson river, the Hamptons or the Santa Monica pier.
