delirio tropicalI think I’m a little behind the curve, but I just discovered Melissa Shoes magazine Plastic (not sure how often it’s published) and although I don’t speak Portuguese, I do understand the language of visually pleasing, well conceived pictorials. Available for free download on the Melissa site, the e-magazine is chock full of highly saturated colors and high profile celeb features (Katy Perry adorns the cover of this installment). An Amazon-jungle theme runs throughout each spread, and my favorite has got to be the Barbie segment titled “Delírio Tropical” in which our favorite childhood doll models mini versions of popular Melissa styles, including the Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood collabs as well as the Amazonas and Patchuli that are favorites around the Karmaloop office. Cheers to Melissa for honoring our “plastic dreams” and the natural beauty of Mother Earth while producing one of the more fashionable green lines we’ve seen yet! View the pictorial below, and definitely download the magazine to see the rest of the sweetness.
