Havaianas celebrates its 55th anniversary. Parabéns!

Havaianas celebrates its 55th anniversary. Parabéns!

This year we are celebrating the 55th anniversary of the most world famous flip-flops brand: Havaianas. It all started in 1962 back in  Brazil. Every year, the company produces 200 million Havainanas and since the foundation of the company it is more than 1.2 billion Havaianas that were sold around the world. Happy birthday Havaianas! The name Havaianas is Portuguese for Hawaiians. The first pair of Havaianas was born in 1962, based on the traditional Japanese sandal known as the Zori, whose soles are made of rice straw. The texture of Havaianas’ rubber soles are like rice grains, one of the many details that make Havaianas unmistakable. By 1964, almost every Brazilian worker had a pair of Havaianas. Salesmen from the company would drive around the country in small trucks in order to sell the flip-flops in simple plastic bags. It was the beginning of a true revolution. The brand…

Watchmaking and Ballooning: at the crossroads of passions

Version française ici We are used to seeing the watch brands invest into aviation, polo, cricket or golf events… but rarely into Ballooning. Breitling, Parmigiani and Zenith were able to clearly stand out from others by investing successfully and with originality into this sport that combines flying pleasure, sharing and discovery of the environment in which we live. What are the highlights? What are the similarities between these two worlds? Is it ultimately a good way of communication? Breitling and the Orbiter missions On March 1st 1999, Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones took off from the mountains of Château d’Oex (in Switzerland) for a nonstop journey of 45 755 km km around the globe. After two unsuccessful attempts, in 19 days they accomplished the “round the world balloon” dreamed of Jules Verne. Visibility for Breitling was extraordinary as the event coverage is global.
