You’re going to need these for your next getaway!
And by ‘these’, we mean an awesome pair of flip flops with a pin-up girl illustration and a matching towel, because that’s exactly what’s in Havaianas’ limited edition Collectible Summer Kit! Yup, everyone’s favourite go-to holiday footwear just got trendier and you can send your thanks not only to the Brazilian brand, but also to world-renowned American illustrator Gil Elvgren.
If the name doesn’t ring a bell (gasp!), the artist is well-known for his pin-up paintings, with some of them being for huge clients such as publishing company Brown & Bigelow and Coca-Cola. During his active years from the 1930s to 1970s, he also dabbled in illustrating stories for magazines, such as The Saturday Evening Post and The Good Housekeeping. Simply put, Gil Elvgren’s work is a huge success story.
But it’s not difficult to figure out why his pin-up paintings garnered so many fans. The women he painted were not the femme fatale, the female adventuress, or worst, somebody’s mistress. They are the girls-next-door who get caught in situations that, though embarrassing, reveal their innocent charms, and they are usually unaware of that beauty.
