Comfortable and eco-friendly “jelly” shoes
It’s hard to find a fashionista who wasn’t over the moon when news hit that Melissa shoes were finally arriving to Singapore. As the original “jelly” shoe brand, this Brazilian label revolutionised women’s footwear in 1979 with its unconventional designs that combine art, luxury and self-expression. Not only are they fashionable (Melissa has collaborated with renowned designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu and Jean Paul Gaultier), the shoes are also comfortable and eco-friendly – a plus point for any fashion label!
