FIRST, HULA HOOP BAG …

Now…it’s ice cream with cone heels…

from the one & only Kaiser, Karl Lagerfeld. His capsule collection for Melissa shoes, named Kollaboration has finally launched in the US. And the muse? Cara Delevigne was chosen to star in the ad campaign, through the Kaiser’s lens as well.
This is the first time Karl collaborated with the Brazilian jelly shoes brand, and also his first time working with plastic materials for shoes.
For Indonesia’s Melissa’s fans, let’s cross our fingers, as their official Indonesia facebook page already shown the pictures from the Kollaboration Collection.

SPLURGE OR SAVE?

Well, I have to admit that I have been tempted by most of the trendy pieces. Don’t we all? But, is it wise to spend a fortune on an item? Your call.

This is my first post ever about splurge or save. Personally, I believe in a power of investing in what I wear. That’s a simple rule, especially if I got attracted on something cute and I believe that it’s only going to see the sun light a couple of times. 

Check out this new bag collection from Melissa, Refraction (in Singapore, they are priced for SGD70 each), which somehow reminds me of that plastic jelly bag from Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 collection (that cost US$3150 for a MM when it was launched). Are you start counting, already? 

Anyway, this Refraction Bag is the latest version of the famous Melissa beach bag, which was originally launched in Brazil back in the 1980’s. They’re lightweight, practical and fabulously colored in Black, Orange, Yellow, Green, Pink and White. Made entirely of plastic, I can imagine toting this to the beach and leave it on the sands without any hesitation.

It’s up to you to decide what’s worth the splurge and what’s not, which products are worth paying more for or which you should get for a steal. Happy counting!

WOOED BY WU, AGAIN

Exploring his design possibilities with material like plastic, Jason Wu did it again with Melissa shoes.

Started their collaboration for the Spring 2012 collection, look at his midas touch for the Brazil brand. He played with Melissa’s unique patent plastic, named Melfex to create his own imagination of jelly shoes. I love the flats, especially the green Melissa Moon+Jason Wu.

IF I WERE A GIRL

There’s no mini me version in my family, so I could only dream about having one wearing this adorable shoes from Melissa.
