Not a brand you’d initially expect to collaborate with a world-renowned supermodel, but none-the-less, Melissa is partnering with Alessandra Ambrosio to boost their sales power. Previously collaborating with major designers, the Brazilian shoe company started a new line of customized shoes in a series called Melissa Loves. Inspired by Melissa Loves, Alessandra Ambrosio designed two styles: Melissa Incense Glitter pump and the Melissa Divine ballet flat.
Remarking on the collaboration, Ambrosio said, “I decided to take part in the project because I was looking for something beyond the modeling career” and “I thought about something that represented my style. I only wear what I love. I think the creative process fascinating, and I have to tell you that I was willing to get involved and create something with my name, my brand”.
While the model is expanding her career resume to include designer (and muse), doing what she does best, Ambrosio also covers the seventh edition of the company’s in house magazine, Plastic Dreams.
