Not all of us can pull off a moon walk like Michael Jackson, but we can walk on the moon – at least, with the Melissa Star Walker collection, part of their fall/winter styles that reference stars, planets, and the eternal cosmos. The futuristic styles aren’t that literal, but still embrace looks inspired by a galaxy far, far away.
L to R: Melissa Spice in Black, White, Grey, Purple
A new model, the Melissa Spice, sees a slim front with metallic details, and the mostly neutral colours are a sure bet for any outfit you’ve got, from bright and flirty to cool and monochrome. Other designs, such as the more casual Space Love, comes with an angular heart-shaped bow, and the Cosmic has shiny or metallic accents on its mostly matte surface. The Constellation sandals recall the 3-D solar system models we peer at in science class.
L to R: Melissa Love System Now in White, Grey-Purple, Pink-White, Grey, Grey-Red
Then, there are also sportswear vibes in Love System Now, a tennis shoe that makes a comeback with a neoprene mesh front. Walk in those shoes, and you’ll be surprised that the patented plastic material feels flexible, comfy, and lighter too.
L to R: Melissa Space Sport in Beige, Black, Blue, Orange, Pink
The Space Sport models are also a pleasant cross between sneakers and casual loafers – there’s both shiny patent material and lightweight neoprene rolled into one, while the tw0-toned styles look good and feel comfy, all at once.
Melissa shoes are priced from $85 to $390, available online and at MDREAMS boutiques, including Wheelock Place and One Reffles Place. mdreams.com.sg
