Melissa x Karl
Oh, hail King Karl with your multitasking skills. Just when you thought he couldn’t add one more brand to his resume, a much loved Brazilian brand has stolen his attention.
Karl Lagerfeld developed his first collaboration collation with brand our fav and most comfortable shoe brand Melissa.
“I had never worked with plastic in this way before. It’s not the classic technique, I am used to working with more traditional techniques for Fendi, Chanel and Lagerfeld shoes. My inspiration was the native country of the brand, celebrating the Brazilian “joie de vivre”. Explains Lagerfeld
This partnership, which will continue for four capsule collections with Melissa, will help him to get to know Brazil and its industry better. Finally, when asked about who he would like to see wearing his creations, he stated: “A designer should never ask himself such a question”.
