Ipanema brazilian flip-flops

Ipanema, the cult Brazilian flip flop brand that's fast becoming the go-to name for stylish sun-seekers everywhere, is back for summer 2013 with a chic new collection of quality shoes available now through its new UK portal. 

Ipanema's flip flops are made in Brazil from PVC, not rubber, which makes them particularly soft, flexible and comfortable to walk in - as well as a more ethical choice: many other brands take natural rubber from trees in the Amazon, but Ipanema flip flops are made from more sustainable synthetic materials that are 100% recyclable.

I've long been a huge fan of Ipanema's shoes, and have tracked them down every summer in department stores and online boutiques to get my flip flop fix. But now it will be even easier to find them in the UK as there's a new, dedicated website entirely devoted to Ipanemas at www.ipanema.uk.com: here you'll find the entire collection in women's, men's and kids' sizes. 

The new collection of over thirty fashionable styles features some really fun and feminine variations on the classic Ipanema flip flop. I'm particularly keen on the new metallic shades that are coming through in the summer 2013 collection: bright, sunny golds and shiny silver straps are ready to catch the sun with a wide range of silhouettes: there are gentle wedges to add height and flatter the ankle alongside the classic flats - in this category I particularly love the gold glitter love heart detailing on black.

All of these sizzling styles will look great worn with this season's glitter and metallic nail polishes peeping through.
