Designer: Gaetano Pesce, Italy
Producer: Melissa, Brasil
Melissa is a Brasilian fashion brand known for developing amazing collaborations, the most recent collaboration is with Italian architect and designer Gaetano Pesce.
The work of Pesce work is characterised by the 'diversified series' the double functionality of objects and architecture combined with the creative use of colours, the political dimension of his projects mixed with the theory and practice of the 'poorly made'. The provocation and the use and improvement of synthetic materials are important characterists of his poetic.
Pesce has designed the most revolutionary shoe done by Melissa where directions on how to create each new style is included when purchasing.
The ankle boot is comprised entirely of interconnected circles, customers will be able to create seven different styles from this one shoe, by cutting the edges to create each new style. To visualize this concept think of the shoe as an origami, it can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs.
The shoes are made of transparent PVC and available in six different colors; black, red, off-white, transparent, blue and translucent orange.
