Havaianas, the maker of the popular rubber flip-flops, is bringing Brazilian chic to the west coast with the opening of an exclusive pop-up shop in Los Angeles now through July 24th.
The “Havaianas Mercado” is located inside the Urban Outfitter's ever changing “Space 15Twenty” at 1520 North Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood. The 1,000 square foot store is inspired by a traditional, colorful, Brazilian marketplace and features a stand where you can “Make Your Own Havaianas” with customizable color soles, straps and embellishments for just $25.
I made purple ones with a flower charm and a gold Love charm punctured into the straps. Uber cute for summer. I also bought a slim pair in black and silver.
Also attending the opening party and making a pair of sandals was actress Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars):
Why should you stop by? It houses the largest assortment of Havaianas in Los Angeles with an extensive selection of both men’s and women’s collections, including special graffiti styles and the newly launched closed toe “Soul Collection," which still has their flip flop bottom inside it. Also, the popular Umami Burger is located in the adjacent outdoor courtyard, so you can shop for flip-flops and then chow down on a juicy truffle burger. At least, that's what I did!
