Funky Brazilian shoe company Melissa has always focused on creating interesting and fashionable footwear. However, their recent collaboration with the crazy talented and super futuristic architect Zaha Hadid has caught my attention. This latest venture in the "Plastic Dreams" empire has resulted in a wonderfully creative line of jellies, which are perfectly sculptural and different. Although the label has worked with the likes of Jean Paul Gautier and Vivienne Westwood in the past, Hadid's architectural background has added an especially amazing twist. The shoes are structural yet functional, and deliciously avant-gard.
The collection is set to be released this September, but there isn't much, currently, about the line on the company's website just yet. I just had to give a shout out to the concept and unique look they've created.
