4 355x500 First look at Karl Lagerfeld x Melissa1 353x500 First look at Karl Lagerfeld x Melissa

Feast your eyes on the first sketches of Karl Lagerfeld’s upcoming collaboration with Brazilian footwear label Melissa! The collection will consist of 4 models – 2 original designs by Karl and updating 2 existing ones. Inspired by Brazil’s joie de vivre, Karl added some fun elements like an ice cream cone heel and transparent spheres at the top of a ballerina, whilst learning about working with Melissa’s trademark plastic material.

The first of 4 capsule collections designed by Karl will land in stores in May. Melissa has previously collaborated with the likes of Jason Wu and Vivienne Westwood.

What do you think of the designs so far?
