Havaianas Sandals Uncovered for Summer

São Paulo Alpargatas in Brazil took the Havaianas brand into the northern hemisphere this year with a print advertising campaign featuring five illustrations: “Banana”, “Taxi”, ” Shoe”, ” Perfume Spray” and “Crank”. The print ads each use an object to reveal the beauty, freedom and fun associated with uncovered footwear. The Taxi ad, with the colors of New York cabs, was designed particularly for the US environment.
