The Campana brothers have united Baroque art to Brazilian lifestyle with the Melissa Barroca Flat + Campana

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.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
