The ultimate Pinoy Adventure with Havaianas!

by - December 13, 2015

Havaianas is no doubt the world's favorite flip-flops brand and I myself have come to love it for their durable and unique designs. :) Aside from their famous 'Make Your Own Havaianas,' I have a new favorite from them and it's their fun and youthful designs for the Filipinas 2015 collection!:)

Three young Filipino artists worked with Havaianas to bring you Lakbay, Lasap and Laro. I'm sure you're all familiar with Abbey Sy, Alessandra Lanot and Patrick Cabral, because their quite popular in the arts and crafts industry of our generation. :)

It won't be hard to guess why I love this event - It's artsy and it was filled with all my favorite Filipino snacks! ^_^

" The big idea for Filipinas 2015 was to collaborate with young Filipino artists, true to the brand's direction to constantly evolve and renew the customer experience while still evoking some feeling of nostalgia."- Anne Gonzalez, Managing Director of Havaianas Philippines


Abbey Sy brought to life the thrill that comes with exploring the motherland. She makes use of words and iconic images that make you want to hop on the next plane, boat, and yes, even jeepney to take you to a one-of-a-kind adventure. Her knack for creating travel diaries was her main jumping point for this concept. After all, she believes that good flip-flops will take you to great places.

So, if you're an adventurer or love going on beach/road trips, take the Lakbay flip-flops with you!


Filipinos' love for flavorful food is portrayed in Alessandra Lanot's classy black and metallic flip-flops. For the young watercolor artist, it's the simple things that make people happy, much like Filipino delicacies that are uncomplicated but simply delicious! This pair will definitely make you crave for the mouth-watering goodness of sorbetes - in a cone, cup or even pandesal.

 This is the pair that I picked out, because I'm a foodie at heart! And since I love Lasap, I couldn't help but also eat sorbetes and taho! ^_^


Creative digital artist Patrick Cabral features the nostalgic feel of the classic Pinoy childhood in this collection. Let his pair take you back to the good ol' days to reminisce the thrill of playing Pinoy games like Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Agawan Base or even Bato Bato Pik. Patrick's design is a reminder for all kids and kids at heart to never lose their inner child.

All the games mentioned above is close to the heart of the 90s kids. Sigh... I miss all those! During our time (yuck! revealing my age! >_<), all we did was play outside. There was no social media or even apps to get hooked on! The main obsession I had with games was the Gameboy Colored! =P

Since this is an artsy event, we also had a live demo from Abbey, Alessandra and Patrick. :)

Over the past years, the Filipinas collection has brought Filipino culture to every colorful pair of Havaianas flip-flops. And this 2015, the brand is excited to bring you the special collection that will serve as a reminder that it is truly more fun in the Philippines. 

This is also one of the reasons why this collection is my favorite. It shows the culture of our country and I truly love Havaianas for being a brand that shows there are so many things to love about the Philippines. I'm hoping you guys could grab a pair or three from this collection! ;)

The Havaians Filipinas 2015 collection will be available this December at select Havaianas retailers nationwide for only Php 1,195. :)
