Ken Done Takes On Havaianas

On 29 September, we launched a collaboration between two icons of Summer: Ken Done and Havaianas. 

Havaianas teamed up with celebrated Australian artist Ken to create a limited edition collection featuring Ken's iconic Barrier Reef Garden print.

“I chose this artwork for the exclusive Havaianas style as it’s bright, fun and perfect for Aussies to wear to the beach”, said Ken.

The launch party featured tunes from DJ Valerie Yum, a reef themed giphy booth, and special guests including brand ambassador Mimi Elashiry, Danny Clayton and Helen Chik.

For every pair of the limited collection sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the research and restoration of The Great Barrier Reef - something very close to Ken’s heart.

“I’ve long found inspiration in the Reef and based many of my works around it’s awe-inspiring natural beauty."
