For summer aficionados who live in tropical countries like the Philippines, fashion trends come and go, but summer never goes out of style.
On the 6th year of Make Your Own Havaianas, these ambassadors of the sun take time to share how they make summer last forever.
The year’s hottest season is one meant to be spent with friends and family. “Summer is hanging at the beach and teaching people the joys of surfing,” shares professional surfer and surf school owner, Luke Landrigan. His quest for the perfect waves both in and out of the country drive him to search for that eternal summer. For food columnist and travel enthusiast, Stephanie Zubiri, summer is about spontaneous travelling, adventure, and surprising oneself with exquisite gifts from every country’s culture. She adds, “Summer is lifting the weight off your shoulders, letting go of all shackles, and surrendering yourself to life.”
Meanwhile, for fashion designer and travel buff, Sassa Jimenez, summer is the time to be more carefree and laid-back. “Summer is a time to experiment with your personal style and even explore places that you’ve never been to before. Summer to me is basically about freedom, self-discovery, and, of course, fun!” she says.
