Ever since Mastermind Japan stopped its runway shows back in 2013, the high-end Japanese brand has been collaborating with numerous brands for seasonal drops, such as its latest foray into street-cool slippers done together with the king of flip flops, Havaianas. The duo created two designs in the inaugural Havaianas x Mastermind Japan collection, both of which are available in limited quantities at selected retailers worldwide.
The first design comes in the popular Havaianas Top silhouette with Mastermind’s signature skull logo artfully split in two halves, one on the left, and the other on the right.
The second pair is an exclusive design inspired by traditional zori sandals (a clear homage to Mastermind’s Japanese roots), featuring an elevated footbed and knotted straps to complete the avant-garde look. Both pairs are sold together with a jet-black shoebox, with Mastermind’s repeated skull motif decorating the interior.
And even though the Havaianas x Mastermind Japan collection was sold out the moment it launched in Japan earlier this week, the rest of Asia Pacific (including Singapore) will only be releasing the exclusive designs from 10 June 2020. In other words, you will still be able to get your hands (or rather, feet) on a pair (or two), and you can call or WhatsApp Club21 at 8121-5208 to reserve a pair, with home delivery right to your door. Take note that sizes range from men’s EUR39 to EUR45, priced at SGD120 for the Havaianas Top Mastermind and SGD220 for the Havaianas Tradi Zori Mastermind.
