Melissa x Y/Project Team Up For a Third Time
Jelly mules are back in business, baby.
Brazilian footwear brand Melissa has once again teamed up with Y/Project for a third capsule collection, continuing the pair’s newfound legacy of jelly mule silhouettes.
Following the latest collection, which released last year after its debut at Y/Project’s Fall/Winter 2021 showcase, the two have come together for another range of unisex footwear comprising three silhouettes. First up is the Melissa Court Boot + Y/Project, followed by the Melissa Court Slide + Y/Project and finally, the Melissa Court Slide + Y/Project.
Each shoe arrives in vibrant new colorways of black, pink, lilac, white and orange, complete with the collaboration’s signature translucent hue. Made from recyclable materials, the spiky-textured silhouettes feature scallop-like edges and delicate detailing.
The collaboration with Y/Project follows a long line of partnerships for Melissa, including the likes of Marine Serre, Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler. Similarly, since Y/Project appointed Diesel’s current Creative Director, Glenn Martens, in 2013, the Parisian label has gone from success to success, collaborating with brands like FILA and UGG.
The Melissa x Y/Project collaboration is available for purchase from Melissa’s website, priced between $159 and $500 USD.
