Plastic Loving: Melissa Adds Jason Wu And Gareth Pugh

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!!

Plastic: Barbie Is Model Perfect For Melissa

I love it when brands do something creative, and I am an avid fan of Brazilian brand Melissa shoes magazine, Plastic. Each issue always has gorgeous editorial spreads, which make me swoon, last issue it was all about Dita Von Teese, and this time around Katy Perry graces the cover but I am afraid that Barbie up-staged her with this glamorous photoshoot.

Barbie looks a doll in her designer wear, teaming her gorgeous gowns with tiny plastic shoes from the Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier collaborations. I am not sure if they are just for the shoot, but seriously these would fit nicely alongside Christian Louboutin’s shoe packs, Barbie is a very lucky girl.
