A Brazilian State of Mind – Havaianas 50th Birthday Party

By Yasmin Ghanem

Havaianas hosted their exuberant 50th Birthday bash at iKandy ultra lounge, Shangri-La Dubai on 21st November, spicing it up with their bona fide Brazilian themed night.

iKandy was kitted out with all things Brazilian and all things Havaianas, from giant Havaianas floating around the lounge, to home grown Brazilian DJs, to authentic Brazilian samba spectacles throughout the night, with a towering Havaianas birthday cake and birthday gifts for all, you could even leave a happy birthday video message for Havaianas!

The night was off to a bang with Brazilian dancer taking to the floor in illustrious Brazilian carnival costumes, parading brightly colored feathers and bejazzled wear and of course shaking it to the hottest Brazilian beats in Dubai.

The birthday cake was without a doubt something else. Golden, shimmering sparklers lit the night with mini Havaianas cupcakes lining the cake. There’s no guilt in a cake like that, even if I did go for seconds… We were rocking in Rio the whole night; Brazilian beverages were flowing partnering with laughs, only to top it off with the most relaxed, free and easy vibes of iKandy.

Born in 1962, Havaianas has brought us 50 years of unfailing savoir faire in the flip-flop world and inspiring more that ‘just a flip-flop’. Havaianas have taken the world by storm, undoubtedly being one of the very best.

With every flip-flop style to every color you could think imaginable possible, whether you want to keep it classy or go bold – what ever you want, I can guarantee you Havaianas have it! This year the brand is bringing you the spirit of ‘always summer’. With Havaianas you will be able to walk on Brazilian sunshine all day long, navigating your way through uneven sandy beaches, shopping until you drop or all the more rocking up to your fav à la mode coffee shop looking fluently stylish. What could be better than matching your flip-flops to any outfit you want to flaunt?

The sole police was on the hunt spotting socialites to fashionistas, snapping only the best shoes out on the town.

Thank you for a brilliant night, Happy 50th Birthday Havaianas!
