Flip-Flop Buzz: Cambardi, Jerusalem Sandals

Summer Sun
Handbag and accessories brand Cambardi is entering the sandal market. Designer Toyin Badiru turned to the summer season in the Amalfi Coast and Capri, Italy, for inspiration on the just-launched collection, which was manufactured in Positano, Italy. The 28 styles use bright colors with Swarovski crystal embellishments on leather and patent leather. Retailing for $200 to $330, the line is sold online at Cambardi.com, and will soon roll out to select department stores and high-end boutiques.

Roman Empire
Jerusalem Sandals is paying tribute to ancient Roman and Greek styles with its spring ’11 debut. The new 27-style collection features natural leather in three colors — brown, black and camel — and was produced in Jerusalem. Priced between $58 and $69, the line is sold at Kitson in Los Angeles, Finery in Seattle and select retailers in Japan.
