Color is the new black: MYOH 2014

MYOH 2014

The local scene is turning glocal. Straight from the future — at a UNESCO, City Government of Laoag and Northwestern University collaboration of an anticipatory thinking and strategic foresight forum-workshop — I went to Brazil for the Make Your Own Havaianas event of the year at the Robinsons Ilocos Norte.  If these are signs of a brighter future, then the Bonfim print wishes for each and every holder of the Havaianas commemmorative pair should come true.

My fellow workshoppers from the Cagayan Valley Region dropped by the MYOH 2014 area.

Michael and I made Brazilian icon Carmen Miranda flip-flops for Raine who is semi-globetrotting these days. In my head, I wish her sunshine.

Ilocanos make way for Make Your Own Havaianas 2014

MYOH2014 set3

The Havaianas event you and me have been waiting for kicks off once again at the Robinsons Ilocos Norte on the 23rd of May, Friday, and winds up on the 25th, Sunday.

Last year, we got our Ilocos pride pins on our flip-flops. This year, we say hello to the festive Brazilian street culture. To quote Vogue, “Brazilians have the ability to make a party out of nothing, and then make it the most exciting night you’ve ever had.” So it’s time to party with Make Your Own Havaianas full-customization out of Brazilian Carnavale bright, bold soles and straps and fun limited edition pins.

Anne Gonzalez, Terry SA Managing Director, says,  “Brazilian culture is all about self expression, and not being ashamed of how vividly you express it.”

2014’s commemorative pair features colorful Bonfims. These are Brazilian wish ribbons worn for good luck. The print wishes every wearer Alegria, Diversao, Empolgacao, Euforia, and Felicidade or Joy, Amusement, Excitement, Euphoria and Bliss – true to the Havaianas always summer spirit.

Brazilian inspired performances will make the event even more bouncing, as Capoeira, Mardi Gras, and Samba dancers hit up the dance floor every day at 5 in the afternoon.

As the summer season hits full throttle, tis the time of the year with our favorite Havaianas. See you, guys and girls! Viva Brasil!
