Brazilian plastic footwear brand, Melissa Shoes, has joined forces with furniture design duo the Campana Brothers for Barroca, an inspired Spring/Summer 2016 collection. A fresh take on Campana brothers' signature mesh and overlapping lines, these florid flats blend ornaments of the past with modern details and an organic color palette. Inspired by their Baroque furniture collection, Melissa Barroca x Campana lends a playful interpretation of Italian Baroque infused with the vibrancy of everyday Brazilian culture.
In celebration of the latest designs, the Campana Brothers launched an installation Barroca: The Harmony of Imperfection at Galleria Melissa in London. The instillation features five furniture pieces from the Campana’s Baroque collection, the primary source of inspiration for the shoes. The space is lined with intricate wallpaper bearing the Campana Brother’s signature mesh combined with traditional Rococo motifs of shells, plant tendrils and cherubs balanced by contemporary references including bones, insects, screws and scissors. Both the instillation and collection create an organic language among the tradition of a culture and the perspective of a new through the fusion of ornaments from the past with contemporary elements.
Melissa Barroca x Campana is now available at Melissa Galerias and online at www.shopmelissa.com worldwide. Each pair retails for $98.
