What do you get when you mix quirky British style with eco-friendly Brazilian shoes? Possibly the most interesting and unique collaboration in footwear history!
“The Queen of Punk Fashion”, Vivienne Westwood, has for decades been known for making “punk” mainstream. She has come a long way from being known as the designer who famously create killer shoes that caused supermodel Naomi Campbell to stumble on the runway almost two decades ago. You may know Westwood as the over-the-top couture designer of Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding gown in Sex & The City but now she’s working with shoe manufacturer, Melissa, to design funky, yet wearable shoes.
Melissa’s shoes are cruelty-free and are all made from synthetic materials like plastic and nylon, meaning there is no guilt accompanying wearing leather or suede. Celebrities like Melissa Auf der Mar go crazy for Melissa’s eco-friendly footwear (you should have seen her when I styled her in them!).
This season, the “Queen of Punk Fashion” joins forces with eco-chic Melissa’s shoes to create retro styles, similar to what strutted down the runways of designers like Prada, but more wearable and affordable.
No ones stumbling down the runway or the sidewalk in these killer heels!
