Collina Strada x Melissa's New Romantics
Only rarely do matches made in heaven come together at just the perfect time. But back on September 9 2022 during an off-location show at New York Fashion Week, Hillary Taymour's popular label Collina Strada showed its new collection in a field of wildflowers. All the models were dressed in the brand's signature romantic silhouettes and shod in the outstanding new Melissa collab collection. It was, as New Yorkers say, kismet.

Never heard of Collina Strada? Well, now you have.
The brand is one of the world's most exciting new fashion talents. To be honest, there couldn't be a better match than the eccentric and colorful maximalism from Collina Strada combined with Melissa's sustainably minded technologies and joyful aesthetic. And it was a magical moment to watch where gender and age were blurred and the eye was drawn to the clothes and those amazing shoes.
The exclusive Melissa x Collina Strada capsule collection values each brand's core values of responsible consumption and playfulness. The collection focuses on reimagining classic silhouettes with a sense of irreverence, humor and youthful spirit. For this collaboration, futuristic shapes, quirky designs, and bright colors are the highlight of both shoe styles ––the Melissa + Collina Strada Puff Sandal and Melissa + Collina Strada Possession.
The Melissa + Collina Strada Puff Sandal takes on the form of a chunky yet chic hiking sandal - maybe the most ambitious and outstanding Melissa design to date. It will be released in hot neon pink, bright blue, metallic lilac, iridescent glitter brown, and black.
Meanwhile the Melissa + Collina Strada Possession is a new twist on Melissa’s iconic jelly shoe, and will be released in silver, glitter lilac, glitter pink, and glitter brown.
Available exclusively in Australia and New Zealand at melissashoes.com.au, The Iconic and INCU from 1 November 2022.
