Our favorite eco-friendly Brazilian footwear label, Melissa has just announced that their next design collaboration will be with fashion’s favorite Kaiser, Karl Lagerfeld. Melissa has worked with iconic fashion designers like Vivienne Westwood, Gareth Pugh, Jason Wu, as well as Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio. While it’s hard to top the Brazilian beauty, Lagerfeld certainly has the magic touch: “Karl’s design talent synonymous with couture has been translated into footwear, bridging the gap between high-end and commercial, extending our customer base and making his name accessible for all” Melissa’s CEO, Paulo Pedó said of the silver-haired mastermind.
While many designer collaborations have been announced over the past few weeks, Karl Lagerfeld’s announcement to work with this eco-friendly line is certainly one of the most exciting. Here at Modelinia, we’ve been long time supporters of the jelly shoes, even featuring them in our exclusive Fashion Week gift bag alongside our Fashion Smashion tee back in September.
Lagerfeld will design four capsule collections for the brand, the first of which will be revealed in March. We can’t wait to get our hand on these Jelly shoes come spring!
