This summer, Melissa Shoes launched their SS16 range of flats, sandals, heels and platforms; all unique in only Melissa’s way. The range, appropriately called ‘Mash Up’, drew inspiration from an array of different countries, cultures and traditions. This melting pot was mirroring our modern society: a mix of people, spaces and nationalities, all drawn together by the power of the Internet. Together, we click, scroll and post at the same time, connecting our lives.
We thought we would highlight some of our favourite designs that stemmed from Melissa’s Spring/Summer 16 range. Summer isn’t just over yet, so there’s still plenty of time to don these unique designs.
Melissa + Vivienne Westwood
Partnership with the British designer is transformed into the perfect fusion of Melissa fun and Westwood innovation for the summer season. Vivienne renewed great classics and brought new ones, full of details that translate her punk and romantic power in each creation.
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Melissa Ultragirl XII
From a simplistic style that could easily pass as a stylish basic flat: Vivienne shakes it up by placing a large bow on the upper. This combined with the bicolor print on the insole assures this Ultragirl singular personality. A staple shoe for any summer evening party.
Melissa + Jason Wu
Melissa’s partnership with the Taiwanese designer brings his luxury elegant style, resulting in feminine and unforgettable shoes. This season Jason Wu continued this minimal modern line and refreshed the summer with delicate creations, full of personality.
Melissa Jean + Jason Wu VI
A classic flat, inspired by a stylish ribbon makes it a modern and very comfortable shoe for the season. For the color options: blue, red and the classic black and white are perfect choices for a comfortable, elegant and feminine style.
Melissa + Salinas
Salinas’ tradition in the “wonderful city” of Rio de Janeiro inspires a collection that brings its lifestyle to Melissa Summer 2016. The sun, beaches, blue sky and sunset parties are some of the elements in this amazing mash up.
Melissa Hotness + Salinas
This beloved Melissa design gets the carioca essence. Hotness comes up all new, with X vamp and crossed wefts, inspired by Rio’s beaches and their sidewalks. Still very comfortable, it keeps the flat form with a very modern tratore sole.
Melissa + Mariko Mori
The Brazilian brand got a fresh, new look under the modern perspective of Mariko Mori – one of the most recognized and respected Japanese artists of our time, with works acquired by museums and private collectors worldwide. Through her work, Mori tries to translate her perception of oneness: human and nature combined.
Melissa Space Love + Mariko Mori
The classic Melissa flat comes up in iridescent shade with a circle detail placed on the upper – oneness symbol – spreading Mori’s philosophy to another level. As of this icon, Space Love brought the fullness and eternity concept between inside and outside, a constant reflection in Mariko’s work – now, also through fashion.
Melissa Aranha Quadrada
The Aranha Quadrada style has made a comeback this season. In a brand new version, Aranha Quadrada comes in a versatile colour palette, highlighted by the see-through and metallic options. Comfortable and minimal in terms of design, it is one of the multiple variations from the Aranha classic style created in 1979, the oldest in Melissa’s history and a constant favourite.
