For our summer collection we had the objective to create a project with genuine fashion from one of the most beautiful and hot cities in the whole world: Rio de Janeiro. To make it really original and carioca, we firmed an agreement with 20 designers from Rio de Janeiro, chosen by the trio Bárbara Rosalinki and Marcela Ceribelli, from the concept store Sala de Estar, and Pedro Perim, from NOO.
These 20 girls are natural influencers, with global fashion, art and design references and a multidisciplinary profile. During months of creative immersions with Melissa, the new shoes from Rio de Janeiro were born, blending the organic and the geometric, curves and straight lines.
The capsule collection is called Trópico Surreal and is formed by two models, Melissa Creatives Flat, a flatform with a thick sole, and Melissa Creatives Wedge, a platform with an asymmetrical heel. The idea is that these shoes are able to transit from cement to grass, from sand to rain and from sun to the night. Choose your favorite one for the summer.
