I’m a huge fan of Melissa footwear and am always excited to learn about the latest collaboration. My first pair of Melissa jellies was from the first Vivienne Westwood collection, a pair of black flats. I wore them almost every day, until I nearly lost one in The Gap on the tube. Then I bought a pair of wine-coloured Harajuku heels and wore them with every 50s style dress I own. And THEN for Christmas I begged for a pair of Ashanti boots – and got them. I am so spoilt. I’m still coveting those pink glitter Ultragirl flats…
Anyway, you get that I’m a big Melissa fan, yada yada. So, on hearing that Karl Lagerfeld had teamed up with the Brazilian brand to create a spectacular collection, my ears immediately started burning with excitement.
Then my face started getting hot. And my eyes widened. And my breathing began to get quicker. Because I saw these.
I already own a pretty awesome pair of ice cream heels, but there’s nothing stopping me from having more than one, right?
Since all of Melissa’s heels have that gorgeous bubblegum scent (of which all of my shoes still have, even after hundreds of wears), I’m hoping that these smell like a strawberry Cornetto.
The rest of the ‘Kollection’ (oh how I hate this stupid trend for making everyone sound like they don’t know the alphabet) is just as impressive, featuring neon curves and futuristic spheres.
What’s your favourite pair from the Melissa and Karl Lagerfeld Kollection? Will you be buying a pair?
