Plastic-O-Rama is back!

And after a pretty long time away from this blog… I’m back!

I was on a vacation with my husband for the last couple weeks, and when I came back home I just realized how I miss so bad share my thoughts and ideas in English. For those who don’t know , I’m a Brazilian living in Sao Paulo. English is a my second language 🙂

Since is a new beggining for this blog, a make over was necessary. Now we have a more clean responsible layout, that is pretty much the way I see life. And the girl with the pink hair is not only regarding the bubblegum color – my hair is actually pink right now.

Well, I have some content already prepared to fill this blog, so you will see lots os fresh content in the next weeks. I’m so excited! Melissa shoes had done a lot of cool stuff – and I was part of a some of them -, and that means we have a lot to talk about!

Melissa Dance Machine: The Fall/Winter Collection

Boys and girls, great news for every plastic lovers: the name of Melissa shoes’ new collection is Melissa Dance Machine, and has tons of inspiration in the art of dancing.

As we expect from the winter collections, the models are more cold weather likely, and with darker colors. I must confess that I’m in love with the boots that I saw – and they come on flats and medium heels.

Save the Date: Galeria Melissa London!

Save the date, Londoners!

The first Melissa Galeria in Europe has a date for the big open: october 9th 2014.

After the big sucess of Galeria Melissa São Paulo and Galeria Melissa New York, the brand decided to open its first european concept store in London. And we couldn’t agree more!

Various designers from UK has teamed up with Melissa, as Gareth Pugh, Judy Blame, Julie Verhoeven and lady Vivienne Westwood. During the Olympics 2012, Melissa launched pop-up store at Convent Garden, the same place that the Galeria will take place, and was a huge success. And the Melissa style fits so well the londoner style.

The two floor store has 400 square meters, and has its project signed by Muti Randolph (who also signed the project for the Brasilian Galeria!). The place, an old bulding from the 18th century, is a pretty clear contrast of the old and the new (so London!), and has lots of interactive facilities. I’m pretty curious to see kinetic installation, with acrylic blocks that move in sync with the soundtrack. How awesome does it seem?
