Havianas team up with Fred Butler for Royal Ascot

Ever since the Royal Wedding, we've been hat-mad at MC Towers and any excuse to experiment with flamboyant headwear is good enough for us. So just imagine our delight when the woman behind Lady Gaga's telephone hat, Fred Butler, announced her latest collaboration with Havianas

Ever since the Royal Wedding, we’ve been hat-mad at MC Towers and any excuse to experiment with flamboyant headwear is good enough for us. So just imagine our delight when the woman behind Lady Gaga‘s telephone hat, Fred Butler, announced her latest collaboration with Havianas.

The flip flop kings are bringing a touch of Brazilian glamour to the most quintessential of British events, Ascot Ladies Day. Accessories designer Fred Butler has been specially commissioned to make a hat – completely out of flip flops!

With Philip Treacy’s recent creations provoking mild hysteria (Beatrice, we’re looking at you), it seems the more outlandish the better. And where else to showcase the weird and wonderful than at the races? We’re thinking feathers, frills, flowers – and now flip flops.

Fred has captured the colourful style of Haviana’s ‘Always Summer’ campaign and she’ll be showcasing her three designs on 16th June at Ascot Ladies Day.
