In the lead-up to Ascot ladies day (we’ve already looked at the pics of Epsom, haven’t we girls?) numerous suggestions are floating between the PRs and Fashion journalists' inboxes. One style of hat you WON’T be seeing advertised however, is accessories designer and all-round creative genius Fred Butler’s creation for Havaianas flip flops, not to be unveiled until the glorious day, June 16th – or Ladies Day at Ascot.
Basically, absolutely sick flip flop purveyors Havaianas, are aiming to bring a touch of Brazilian glamour to this most British of festivals by commissioning ace designer Fred to make some hats out of flip flops – and put her own inimitable stamp on the creations. Watch the video for a sneak peek of what the hats will look like when completed, and Fred’s inspiration for the project.
We’re both excited about Ladies day – Fred told us; ‘Havaianas are the ultimate summer shoe aren’t they? Personally, because I’m known for always wearing a different bright colour every day – they are perfect for co-ordinating with your look every day. I’m looking forward to taking the Havaiana hats to Ascot and seeing what everyone’s wearing and what they’re rocking and also seeing how everyone reacts to our hats’
But Freeeeeeeeed, what are YOU gonna wear on the big day?
‘I haven’t decided yet. Possible all-white outfit with one of the colourful hats, but I don’t actually know for sure’
