Looking at our wall calendar spring has officially started. Unfortunately, we are still experiencing cold temperatures and cannot help but daydream of the rays of the sun and warm summer days wearing shorts, tops and flip flops.
Who doesn’t have a pair of flip flops in the shoe rank? We all agree that they are the most inexpensive and comfortable shoes for our feet. The most popular ones on the market come from Havaianas, a Brazilian-based company known for fun and style, which teamed up with Missoni, the Italian luxury brand, to produce the capsule collection Missoni Loves Havaianas in 2011 and 2012.
Of Italian origins, if I close my eyes I cannot help but think of a better representative for those vivacious colours. Known for its knitwear and traditional zigzag patterns in a rainbow of colours, the name Missoni hits my head these days as we are approaching the 4 of April. Three months ago Vittorio Missoni, the marketing director, with his life partner Maurizia Castiglioni, two friends Elda Scalvenzi and Guido Foresti and two Venezuelan pilots disappeared while flying back between Los Roques archipelago and Caracas.
The search has been ongoing and everybody continues to hold hope. email@example.com is the email address to write if you know anything about it.
Moreover, the fact brings me back to the thought of other tourists who disappeared on 4 January 2008 without leaving trace and sharing the same devastating event of Vittorio Missoni and his friends in Venezuela.
The Missoni Loves Havaianas flip flops illustration is a hymn to hope.
Never cease to hope.
