Another day, another Karl Lagerfeld
collaboration. This time, the Chanel
Creative Director has teamed up with Brazilian plastic shoe company Melissa
on a line of squidgy footwear—four styles set to arrive in stores in fall 2013.
"Karl's design talent, synonymous with couture, has been translated into footwear, bridging the gap between high-end and commercial, extending our customer base and making his name accessible for all," said Melissa CEO Paulo Pedo.
This isn't the first designer collaboration for the plastic-is-fantastic shoe company. Melissa has previously worked with Vivienne Westwood
, Jason Wu
, Julie Verhoeven
, Pedro Lourenco
, Angry Birds, and The Muppets. Okay, those last two aren't luxury designers, but they're awesome.
