Un pas vers l'art et la mode : la collaboration entre Melissa et Y/Project

A step towards art and fashion: the collaboration between Melissa and Y/Project

Posted by Melissa France on

Showing boldness and innovation, iconic Brazilian footwear brand Melissa joins forces with Paris-based fashion house Y/Project for a remarkable collaboration that marries fashion, art and design.

A touch of history in contemporary fashion

Inspired by Y/Project Creative Director Glenn Martens, this collaboration introduces two new footwear designs that fit perfectly into Y/Project's design ethos. The brand has always excelled at mixing and distorting historical references and pop culture, past and present, high and low. This time, the Melissa x Y/Project collaboration is no exception.

The first model is a mule that draws inspiration from the historical Rococo period, often represented by miniature porcelain shoe figurines. With a reference to profusely ornate Victorian vases and the popular British tradition of porcelain objects, these mules twist the idea of ​​preciousness to create a true slippery masterpiece.

The second model is a classic slide available in two colors, featuring Persian rug patterns and paintbrush-inspired prints. In keeping with the vision of a girl's dream of wearing a crystal shoe, this shoe offers all the comfort Melissa is renowned for.

A collaboration that defies trends

The disruptive quality of Y/Project's brand and design is Melissa's biggest motivation in this new collaboration. This is a new episode in their history and dedication to innovate and create trends, highlighting Melissa's three pillars: art, fashion and design.

The Melissa x Y/Project collaboration is not only a reflection of the craftsmanship and artistry of both brands, but it is also a testament to their shared commitment to sustainability. Melissa is dedicated to delivering fashion that contributes to more sustainable living, which creates remarkable synergy between the two brands.
