When it comes to eco-friendly fashionable shoes that express individualism, Melissa is your choice.

In the newly launched Melissa Wanna Be Carioca collection, the brand honours Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro and takes a nostalgic look at the past with a nod to the contemporary.

The collection boasts a colour palette that goes from neon pink, yellow, blue, green and red to classical white, black and brown.

A new model signed by Jason Wu, Melissa Charlotte + Jason Wu, an asymmetrical flat playing on the natural curves of Rio will be presented. There are also new shapes by Vivienne Westwood, J. Maskrey and Salinas.

All Melissa shoes are made from a unique, patented plastic material called Melflex, a form of PVC that provides improved elasticity, impermeability and resistance. It is hypoallergenic, odourless and 100% biodegradable.

Priced from RM269, Melissa shoes are available only in the Klang Valley. – Lee Shi Yuan
