Brazilian plastic footwear brand, Melissa, launched its newest collaboration with visionary designer Jeremy Scott.
Together with Melissa, Scott has created two signature styles: an ankle boot and a mule. “I’m so excited to have the chance to collaborate with Melissa! I’m a fan of the fun that they put into footwear and I’m honored to be included in the long line of great fashion designers that they have collaborated with over the past 44 years,” said Scott. “It’s been a joy to watch my ideas become translated by their expert team and to be able to bring to life designs that are not only high fashion, but affordable, too.”
The mule and ankle boot feature a wide spectrum of colors. “Being my first foray into plastic footwear, I wanted to play with the concept of inflatable pool toys,” continued Scott. In addition to the two original designs, the collaboration also includes two pairs of flats, a sandal, and a rain boot for kids. All the styles will have a mock air nozzle to hint at the inflatable pool toy inspiration.
Scott, creative director of Italian brand Moschino and of his eponymous brand, has been known for his fun, cheeky, and colorful take on fashion. His admiration for pop culture and humor has consistently reflected in his designs, including his collaboration with Melissa. Full of bright colors and pool inspiration, this designer collection offers shoes perfectly apt for the sunny summer season.
Last May 31 at SM Aura Premier, Melissa collaborated with Preview magazine on the launch of the Jeremy Scott collection with Preview Shops Here: Melissa x Jeremy Scott.
