Melissa x Jeremy Scott SS16

2 days ago in this post, you saw the Melissa x Jeremy Scott announcement where the shoes,  slated for release as part of the Spring/Summer 16 collection, would be showcased on during Scott’s runway show at New York Fashion Week. Now, here are the products, up close!

Backstage shots at all the colour variations available:

As I was looking at the backstage photos, I was kinda wondering, apart from the vibrant colours, how these shoes even remotely resembled the inflatable pool toys that Scott had wanted them to look like.. And then, I saw it: that circular plastic part with the stopper through which air gets inserted, that’s typically found on all of these aforementioned pool companions.

The Melissa x Jeremy Scott is already available for purchase at all Melissa “Galeria” stores throughout New York, London, and Sao Paolo including multi-label luxury retailers such as Colette in Paris, 10 Corso Como in Milan, and Alchemist in Miami.

To be honest, I actually expected the quirky prints and cartoon illustrations that the designer is known for, and would’ve preferred it that way. What about you?
