Just picked up the MELISSA in collaboration with Vivienne Westwood flats in iridescent gold, and they are to die for. Part of the Anglomania collection, these ultra-lightweight plastic flats are made of an eco-friendly material that feels like butter and has helped to popularize the brand. The minute you put them on your feet, you become aware of how heavy the rest of your shoes are! The Brazilian based designer has received mentions in prominent glossies and books around the world, yet remains an industry insider brand— her shoes are worn by trendsetters around the globe, even Marc Jacobs has a pair purely as a collector’s item. With collaborations including Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, and Alexander Herchcovitch, MELISSA’s shoes have been named one of the revolutionary footwear brands of our time, a must-have in every closet, which has earned her a spot on our radar…there’s no telling what’s next for these plastic dreams!!!
