Havaianas expands the launch of its first eyewear collection worldwide


In partnership with Safilo, the brand grows its portfolio by presenting more than 80 sunglasses proposals

The Havaianas Eyewear collection is one of the greatest announcements from the brand. Launched in August 2016 as avant-première in Brazil – Havaianas birthplace – the collection is ready to conquer the world!


The eyewear collection is full of colors on great shapes, expressing all the fun and Brazilian mood already recognized and admired around the world in an unprecedented partnership with Safilo.

The glasses bring the spirit of the Brazilian summer with many colors and surprising combinations, which, as well as flip-flops, are great for wearing from sandy beaches to urban centers.

The line features four best-selling shapes of sunglasses with a variety of sizes and countless color combinations, baptized with names of famous Brazilian beach destinations: Rio, Paraty, Trancoso and Noronha. The collection represents the essence of Havaianas translated into eyewear: the sunglasses feature Havaianas comfortable rubber finishing with the famous rice pattern present in the sole of the flip-flops.

On top of these four styles, the collection has a special style called Brasil, the only style in the collection whose front is produced in acetate, featuring layers with the colors of the Brazilian flag, as the famous Brazil flip-flops.

The sunglasses are produced in three different materials: rubber, acetate and polyamide, in sizes ranging from small, medium and large. The lenses have UVA/UVB protection and have different lens finishings: solid, gradient and mirrored.

Created based on Havaianas rainbow of colors, the sunglasses promise to have the same success as the original flip-flops, sneakers and clothing. The Havaianas Eyewear collection has soon become an object of desire in Brazil.

As Havaianas is recognized to be a democratic brand for every taste, the eyewear collection satisfies both classic as well as more innovative consumers thanks to the wide variety of color combinations and shapes. Havaianas Eyewear takes the Brazilian summer and fun all year round to the rest of the world.

Havaianas Eyewear packaging

The eyewear collection will be sold with neoprene pouches in six color options: gray, blue, green, red, orange and yellow.

The first Havaianas Eyewear collection will be available worldwide from February 2017.
