Melissa® is an iconic global no. 1 plastic footwear brand creating innovative designs and electrifying women’s imaginations for 30 years.
Melissa® is the original “Jelly”, born in 1979 in Brazil and is as much a part of daily life as the Brazilian bikini.
Melissa® launches two seasons per year at Sao Paulo (Brazil) fashion week where international media and buyers come to marvel over the stunning designs to be released on to the market.
Melissa® has been available outside of Brazil only in the past few years and in this short time currently sells in over 80 countries. Melissa® is celebrated in all around the world where it has reached enormous popularity selling in boutiques including “Colette”, “Selfridges”, “Crawford Lane” and “Beams”.
Melissa® is in love with originality and their main challenge is to unite cutting edge technology and design no like no other, giving new forms, colours and finishing touches to their shoes. Melissa® has pioneered plastic innovation in their laboratories by developing a composition called MelFlex® which offers improved comfort and style. Its formula contains products which are hypoallergenic and 100% safe for health. It is odourless, neutral and natural.
Melissa® enjoys worldwide recognition for its innovative work with plastic, searching for and reinventing trends. These trends are largely created in-house under the control of Edson Matsuo, however every season Melissa® will launch collaboration with a major international designer including Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Alexandre Herchovitch, J. Maskrey, Isabela Capeto, Patrick Cox, Thais Losso, Doc Dog, Neon, Irmaos Campana, Zaha Hadid, Judy Blame, Lovefoxx.
