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?

Melissa Miniatures Design Collection

All that girls that love Melissa shoes can talk abut here un Brazil is about the Melissa Miniatures Design Collection.

It’s a five model collection, all iconics and designed by great worldwide renowned designers. The Campana shoe is the same one that came in the Easter egg we talked about here.

The photoshoot was live instagramed by the Cartel 011, and it was love at first sight. Myself included. So I went to Galeria Melissa São Paulo to take a closer look into these babes. And, of course, took some pictures of them.


The miniatures are exactly the same shape as the real ones. It’s quite impressive! They are made with the same jelly material (despite it seems more like acrylic), which means a perfect miniature.

The miniatures also come in a special box that tells the story of that model’s designer, and also one limited edition black acrylic pedestal, so it can be exposed, just like the pictures above. It’s also important to say that only the Zaha Hadid model come as a pair; the other ones come just the right foot.

I don’t need to say that I wanted all of them, right? but, as I could choose just one, I chose the one that I always wanted in “real size” but I could never find it on my size.

As soon as I left the store, I made a click of my brand new miniature of Melissa Zaha Hadid at the new facade of Galeria Melissa de São Paulo, that is already in the Eat My Melissa collection theme.


So far the miniatures are just for sale at the Galeria Melissa São Paulo, and in the next months will be for sale all over Brazil. We have no information about sales outside the country, but my guess is that Galeria Melissa Nova York must sell them too.

Where? At Galeria Melissa São Paulo (see here)
How much: R$59,90 (about US$30)

What do you think about them? Aren’t they lovely?
