Gareth Pugh unveils shoe line for Melissa
After months of anticipation, Gareth Pugh has debuted his capsule shoe collection for Melissa. The designer has branched out further from his MAC collaboration with a new shoe line for the brand. Melissa are best known for their plastic shoes, which Pugh admits is what drew him to partnering with the brand.
"Of course the whole plastic thing is very up my street," Pugh told Vogue UK. "Melissa is a company that I have known for many years - they supported me with shoe sponsorship for my second show at London Fashion Week - spring/summer 2006. We have talked about doing something together ever since - I just don't think it was ever the right time to do it before."
The collection features two styles - a flat peep-toe in Pugh's signature zig-zag print and a gladiator sandal which is available in variations of black, white and silver. This style was adapted from his Spring/Summer 2009 show.
"The Melissa style has quite an amour-like quality to them which I love," added Pugh.
