OUR STORY

Melissa was born out of disruption. We emerged in 1979 to transform plastic into classic, and classic into extraordinary.

The Aranha style, inspired by the footwear worn by French Riviera fishermen, was an immediate success and has become a symbol for generation after generation.

Our Philosophy

“Our story is yours. And in your story there is Melissa.“

Melissa is made of stories. Each person’s story with the brand is what makes it relevant. It is connecting with others and assimilating other points of view and ways of living that makes us both singular and plural at the same time.

SUSTAINABILITY

Melissa is art, fashion and design. But it is also sustainability.

We are cruelty-free. And 100% recyclable. Thanks to Melflex®, our very own PVC, every pair of Melissas is flexible, comfortable and resistant. We know that an extraordinary future is only possible if we are very responsible and take a stand.

Melissa was one of the first brands in the world to create collaborative collections

In 1983, we launched our first collaboration with the iconic Jean-Paul Gaultier, renowned for his eccentric and avant-garde designs. Our products, created with and carrying the signature of big names in fashion, art and design, are accessible to everybody. Take a look at our timeline and reminisce with us about our story.
