I have kind of gone a little crazy over the Jason Wu for Target collection that I totally forgot that the New York-based designer has also teamed up with Brazilian plastic shoe brand, Melissa. Both shoes are based on pre-existing Melissa bestsellers, my favourite the Ultragirl ballet flat, and the Lady Dragon peep-toe sling-back, with both coming with a Wu injection – the ballet flats with a Miss Wu owl logo bow and a sunburst design is adorned on the heels, which has come directly from Wu’s autumn/winter 2011 collection.
Both styles are available in black, merlot, and putty, with the flats also coming in a nude smoke design as well, and all feature lace printed lining, which looks cool on the wine coloured ‘merlot’.
The plastic candy-smelling brand is also continuing its collaboration with Vivienne Westwood with new colours for the iconic Lady Dragon heart adorned sling-backs; and new for spring is a graphic collection with British designer Gareth Pugh featuring his signature zig-zag print.
The Gareth Pugh collection comprises of two styles: a flat peep-toe Ultragirl adorned with his signature zig-zag print; and a gladiator sandal which comes in combinations of black, white and silver – both inspired by the designer’s spring/summer 2009 collection.
From the Melissa White collection – my favourite has to be these yellow printed Melissa Peace wedges – how cute are they!!
