Melissa + Zaha Hadid collaborate on  Melissa Plastic Dreams eco footwear collection

All the shoes featured in the  Melissa Plastic Dreams  shoe collection are made from MELFLEX plastic, a patented, hypo-allergenic, recyclable, and extremely flexible PVC. Through a series of collaborations with international designers such as Vivienne Westwood  and for this collection with world renowned architect Zaha Hadid , Melissa Plastic Dreams have taken a base material generally  used for ‘jellies’ (children’s waterproof  plastic sandals) and turned them into an art form. ‘Zaha Hadid’s Dreams’ for  Melissa could be a 3D maquet  for one of her new concept buildings . With fluid lines and sweeping   curves, they are  both good to look at and comfortable to wear. An ecological fashion statement that reconciles both form and function …and when you’ve finished wearing them…..they are much too cool to store in the bottom of the wardrobe they are worthy of displaying on a shelf!
