The 10-day event was attended by style squads, sun worshippers and generations of Havaianaticos, from millennials making their first pair to those making their 11th MYOH combination. Every year, MYOH highlights a destination or theme that celebrates its heritage.

This year paid homage to its Japanese roots with the commemorative sole inspired by the ancient art of Shibori, a Japanese fabric-dyeing technique that makes use of indigo shades to create beautiful patterns on cloths for kimonos and obi sashes.

The 2016 collection also came with a selection of kawaii pins – Sakura, Ramen, Japanese Fan, Empress, Zori, Ninja and other statement pins – with the finished pairs packaged in an eye-catching dyed bag with Japanese designs created by local craft artist Alessa Lanot.
