Havaianas lately signed a license agreement with Disney and Warner Bros. for a new children's collection that will also be sold in Europe. The line is co-branded and the agreement also includes a partnership for marketing and commercial activities. The European offices of Alparagates, parent company of Havaianas, will include the lower-priced thongs of Dupé into its offerings as of 2012. This alternative Brazilian brand, which was purchased by Alpargatas a few years ago, will allow the company to enter mass market distribution in Europe at prices of between €7- €12, below the €16-30 range of Havaianas.
