Melissa, the famous Brazilian shoe brand created by famous designers and stylists, moulded of plastic in a rainbow of colours and aware of footwear’s fetish value, has put miniatures of its most successful models on the market, including collectable items like tiny reproductions of the most important classics of modern furniture created by masters of design, and proposed by Vitra and Cassina. Currently the collection of miniatures features models of shoes by Fernando and Humberto Campana, Zaha Hadid, Gaetano Pesce and Karim Rashid. To emphasize the relationship between footwear and design, the latest models designed by the Campana brothers, inspired by Barrocco furniture and created for the gallery O in Rome, are displayed in an exposition in the London store.
