Vivienne Westwood and Zaha Hadid for Melissa


Here's something to absolutely look forward to!!! I can't wait for Istila Companhia, the Philippine distributors of Melissa, to reveal their latest collection for Spring!

What I know from reading Robb Young's article from the International Herald Tribune, is that Vivienne Westwood has reinterpreted two of her classic shoe styles in Melissa's plastic! I doubt if it will be her pirate boots though...(But hey, those would make fabulous rainboots!) Hmmm, Sex Shoe is that you?

As if that wasn't enough, architect Zaha Hadid (2004 Laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize), has come up with a tentacled sandal prototype that is "already causing a stir among design maniacs".

Exciting times not only for Melissa fans but for design fanatics and shoe fetishists as well don't you think?
