If you are not already a fan of the iconic footwear brand, Melissa (from Brazil) then you will be after reading this!
Melissa transforms plastic spheres into objects of desire.
They use a specially developed kind of plastic that is super comfortable, fully recyclable and perfumed (yes, my pair actually smells like strawberries!)
Over the years, Melissa has partnered with some of the world’s brightest design talents including fashion designers (e.g. Vivienne Westwood), architects (e.g. Karim Rashid and Zaha Hadid), and furniture designers (e.g. The Campana Brothers), among others.
You can order yours direct from www.melissaza.co.za otherwise they have just opened up a Pop-up Store (only until April 2013): Shop L85, Ground Level at Eastgate Shopping Centre (close to Ster-Kinekor Cinema)
From sexy stilettos to fabulous flats, Melissa shoes have re-invented the much-loved jelly shoe...that's for sure!
