Plastic is the new leather!

08 January 2009


Remember how much you loved your jelly shoes as a kid? But apparently they weren't appropriate for schoolwear (thanks mum) and so you were shoe-horned into sensible leather flats. Well thanks to a genius collaboration between Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Melissa plastic shoes are back and they are as cute as we were in our little jellies.

The third model in the ongoing collab is the best yet. Worn in Vivienne's SS09 Anglomania show, the models practically bounced down the catwalk in the gorgeous Lady Dragon shoes. The high-heeled, peep-toe, adjustable slingback comes in 5 colourways - peach or lemon with black hearts, and pearly white, pastel blue or dove grey, all with red hearts. But just when you thought that they couldn't get cuter, there are glittery versions in black and crystal gold, featuring the Westwood ‘orb' instead of a heart.

But the best thing about them? They are £70!! Be still our beating hearts, we might be able to justify more than one pair!

Available from Vivienne Westwood stores, Browns Focus and Harvey Nichols.
