If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you will know I have a massive obsession with Melissa shoes. If you haven’t seen this brand before, they are a brand from Brazil made from bubblegum scented PVC, like the jelly shoes you have as a child! They are reached cult status with their collaborations with numerous designers, mostÂ notably, Vivienne Westwood. So I’m pleased to bring you my pick of the Melissa Vivienne Westwood SS12 designs.
The Ultragirl style has appeared in a form every season and is a classic ballet pump. This season they have lost the peep toe feature of precious seasons and added a selection of juicy fruit shades, like these peach ones. I love the addition of the coloured orb on the toe.
A new take on the Lady Dragon design, these are available in a range of colours and feature a angel wing motif on the toe, a very vintage look, which is a little more toned down than my favourite heart Lady Dragons. I like the choice of combining matte and gloss PVC in this design for a new take on the material.
Something would be wrong if they stopped creating the ever popular heart toe Lady Dragons! I have theses in sky blue and red, from one of the first collections. This season we’ve got some more juicy fruit shades, mango and peach with eye catching metallic finish hearts. How can you not love this shoe design?
What do you think of Melissa shoes? Do you own any?
