It Started In Capri

img_0271as.jpgSaying that Capri style is beach style is like saying that Madonna is a singer – while true, it understates things by a mile. Things do stay quite casual on the street and around the main beach areas during the day – lots of designer bikinis under cover-ups, expensive sunglasses, and an impressive array of tote bags. Come aperitivo time however – when the daytrippers who visit the island have gone back to the mainland – Capri’s main square starts to resemble a resort collection come to life. Whether wearing the latest designer creations from the boutiques that line Via Camerelle, or opting for Caprese chic by wearing famous local labels such as the handmade sandals from Da Costanzo, everyone is looking summer chic. Costanzo by the way is 75 years old and not in his namesake shop everyday these days. (He was a cobbler in 1959 in the sandal maker’s shop that Sophia Loren and Clark Gable visit in the legendary Capri-filmed movie, It Started In Naples.) He also famously made sandals for Jackie O. He is still alive and still working however and everything in his shop is still handmade by either him or his son. No website and no mail order – only in Capri.

    If they Costanzo sandals include the pairs from the first pic, then they are definitely all I have been looking for this summer…
