The Minions characters from the “Despicable Me” animated film are a favorite of kids and adults the world over. Aware of this, Havaianas has launched a line of sandals inspired by these characters.
There are four models, for adults and kids. The collection will hit stores in August.
The campaign for the S/S 2015 collection from Brazilian designer Patricia Bonaldi is already being launched. Just like the clothes, the theme of the photos was inspired by the country, featuring a quite lyrical feel.
The face of this season is Dutch model Yrme Stiekema. The campaign was shot by Zee Nunes. Styling is by Yasmine Sterea, a fashion editor at Vogue Brazil, with makeup by Henrique Martins. The collection will hit stores in August 2014.

If I had 12 hours in Rio I would first visit the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, it is one of the city’s main landmarks. Then I’d head to the Copacabana Hotel, where I held my first fashion show, to have drinks by the pool.
My favourite restaurant in Rio is Olympe, in the Jardim Botanico neighbourhood.
My top beach spots in Brazil are the beaches in Fernando de Noronha, Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro and Trancoso in Bahia.
Brazilian style is to be a part of every race, and to have a heart overflowing with the greatness of art, poetry and music; there’s no such thing as moderation. It ranges from the coolness of bossa nova to the rigour of modernist architecture, but, for me, it is always about freedom and spontaneous sensuality.
Don’t forget to pack a bikini, of course, plus a pair of oversize sunglasses and lots of light clothing.
Don’t leave Brazil without a pair of Havaianas.
