Gaetano Pesce for Melissa

Let me be the first to share that Gaetano Pesce's limited edition shoe for Melissa is coming to town. As a matter of fact, it will be available in very few and selected concept stores around the world, one of which is SHOP at Ermou, Athens.

The reknown Italian architect, artist and designer who lists Osaca's famous Organic Building among his achievements, worked closely with Melissa in creating this bootie that will unleash the diy ma(on)ster in you. The discs it consists of are connected in a way that can be easily cut with a pair of scissors in order to create your very own pump, sandal or any other design your creative mind can think of.

Pesce said he wanted to explore the potential of a shoe that offers the option of "post-customization". Indeed he's given us a playground.
