‘I’m fascinated by plastic, a simple material with many possibilities of being.’
- Melissa’s Creative Director, Edson Matsuo
I've been seeing these shoes in various colors; all over the internet. I thought they were pretty but my interest didn't go past that. Recently I learned that these Dragon Lady shoes are a collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Melissa Shoes.
I'm not a brand name type of girl, but my styles are very varied. Yes, I said, very varied. Makes sense in my head.
I'm vaguely familiar with Vivianne Westwood but had never heard of Melissa Shoes. Apparently the designer behind Melissa, is actually a man named, Edson Matsuo. Matsuo was a student of architecture and graphic design. He uses plastic to create these high end shoes. He also uses means of scent as each jelly shoe has a candy like smell.
For whatever reasons, I am able to look at these shoes and not feel the ugliness of Valenetine's Day/Hallmark Day, hover over me.
These shoes are in "Dove Blue".
These shoes are from the Spring Collection. There are few left at the Vivienne Westwood site. I found these on another site which offered them on sale, which is why I was able to afford them.
There are other colors which appeal to me but are sadly no longer in stock.
I was hoping I'd find this one as it's design is glittered with a golden heart. Take a look at some other colors.
