The Mini Melissa range is Westwood’s second collaboration with the Brazilian label, famous for their candy-scented plastic shoes and collaborations that bring the talents of renowned designers and architects – the likes of Zaha Hadid, Karim Rashid and the Campana Brothers – to footwear.
The collection revisits two styles from the Vivienne Westwood and Melissa spring 2009 Lady Dragon collaboration. The popular and iconic hearts and bows of ‘Lady Dragon Bow’ and ‘Lady Dragon Heart’ have been shrunk to miniature proportions (minus, of course, the heel and with the introduction of baby-safe Velcro fastenings).
The shoes are as environmentally responsible as they are cute, made from Melissa’s signature Melflex plastic – a non-toxic, breathable and recyclable form of PVC.
Trendsetting tots sporting shoes from the Mini Melissa range might still be learning to walk, but they’ll certainly be doing it with style.
