As the seasons change in the fashion world, we readily welcome one of the most game-changing shoe collections – the Melissa Nation Autumn/Winter 2014.
Known for their clever and fashionable usage of Melflex plastic, Melissa unveils a collection that has us nodding and clapping in approval. Celebrating a civilisation that’s globalised, colourful and without prejudice, the ‘Melissa Nation’ Autumn/Winter 2014 is inspired by the richness of multiethnicity of different peoples from around the world. The values of this theme include happiness, friendship, love and collectiveness.
The result? A stunning star-studded collection.
To translate said positive themes into shoes, a team of renowned designers have once again joined forces with the Brazillian shoe brand. And while it can’t be denied that Melissa has always been recognised for their famous fashion collaborations, almost every piece from this season is a feast to the eyes and feet.
Whether it’s the quirkiness of Karl Lagerfeld, modish Jason Wu ideas, or even Melissa’s own brand of fashion ideas that work; plastic and jelly shoe lovers are definitely spoilt for choice.
For a better idea of why we’re going gaga over this collection, we lay out our top seven picks from the Melissa Nation Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection.
Vivienne Westwood Anglomani + Melissa Ultragirl XII
Mixing modern and Baroque styles, the English designer uses an ultra feminie bow to give a dramatic touch to one of Melissa’s most beloved flats. Your feet will certainly not go unnoticed.
Melissa Ultragirl + J. Maskrey II
Donned with real Swarovski crystals, designer J. Maskrey will make any girl feel like a modern-day Cinderella with this pretty pair. The fact that you can pair them with almost anything is a definite plus point.
Melissa Ascension + Gareth Pugh
A definite head-turned, this futuristic boot is a glamourous version of the sandal designed by Gareth Pugh in 2011. Inspired by the ‘aileron’ flaps used in aircraft wings, we foresee it being an object of desire of design and architecture afficianodos.
Melissa Ballet Heel
For those who love all things ladylike and the art of ballet, leap your way to an elegant finishing touch with these unique heels. The Ballet Heels by Melissa feature a subtle shimmer finish with laces to leave a feminine touch to the feet.
Melissa Ultragirl Heel + Karl Lagerfeld
If those sunnies seem familiar, you’re absolutely right – they are akin to Mr. Lagerfeld’s. Humorous and daring, this is an indispensable item for trendsetters. The shoes also come in the Ultragirl ballerina flats style.
Melissa Magda + Jason Wu
Ideal for adding a bit of history to your look, this stylish pair of shoes are retro, casual and is perfect for those who want to experience the revival of sandals + socks.
Melissa Lady Dragon III
If you’re not a fan of stiletto heels, these medium-height large heels are just right for you. Exhibiting simple and minimalist lines that evoke a futuristic as well as a sophisticated image at the same time, Melissa Lady Dragon is totally in trend and would look great with tailored pants or flowy mini dresses.
Mini Melissa Sugar Rain
It’s a rhino in the form of comfortable shoes, need we say more? The only complaint we have is that we wish these were made in adult sizes.
And all these are just part of the Melissa Nation. Check out the remaining showstoppers here:
