Heed The Seeds Gisele Bündchen's collection for Ipanema

Wouldn't it be nice to prance around in flip-flops designed by famed Brazilian fashion icon and Forbes Magazine's “World's Top-Earning Model” Gisele Bündchen herself? Ipanema, one of Brazil's premiere flip-flop brands, ups the ante of the ultimate summer footwear by launching the GB Seeds Collection, Gisele's third line with the brand.

While everyone is taking a green stride, Ipanema and Gisele join in with their share of actively working for a better environment through conscientious resource management. The Ipanema GB Seeds Collection is made from safe, recycled materials and supplies such as industrial residues, painting residues, and surplus PVC, all in a stylish effort to conserve Mother Nature.

Distributors of Ipanema here in the Philippines have also teamed up with environmental organization, Haribon Foundation to create an awareness campaign on the preservation of the Philippine Rainforests. Forest-inspired prints and a metal emblem that symbolizes the “seed of life” adorn the comfy, stylish and eco-chic flip-flops of the Ipanema GB Seeds Collection.

The Ipanema GB Seeds Collection is available in SM Department Store, Shoe Salon, Chocolate Clothing Co., Red Alert, Landmark, Freeway, Planet Sports, Crossings, Brent and Chloe in Pampanga, Stand and Stride in Cabanatuan, Chimes Davao, 25th Avenue Square Naga, Basix Bacolod and for other boutiques nationwide, you can check the complete list at
