Famed for its gorgeous sandy beaches with sunny skies, rich culture, musical lifestyle, and friendly inhabitants, the SS'16 "Wanna Be Carioca" collection draws inspiration from the amazing sights and sounds of the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

The "Carioca" spirit is one that embodies the essence of simplicity, joyful living, optimism, and a carefree relaxed-in-the-city attitude... and this collection pays homage with comfortable lounge-worthy footwear in exciting summer-inspired vivid brights. 

Rio de Janeiro is a world of dualities where the real and the imagined mingle. It is latent Brazilianness, and simultaneously a fantasy destination in imaginations around the world... and "Wanna be Carioca" was born with a ray of Sunshine inside. It comes warm, with bossa and samba for your feet.

We go from the boardwalk to mureta de Urca, from the seaside to the waterfalls, from rhythmic drums to rock concerts. Melissa is every bit as versatile as Cariocas themselves.

For more than 35 years, Melissa has always stayed true to its legacy in the universe of plastic shoes. This season, we are pleased to launch the all-new Mel - Dreamed by Melissa range, delightfully designed for the playful 4 to 9 age group.

Mini Melissa range: Adorable baby footwear all lined up for our little fashionistas!

One city, one imagination, one lifestyle. 
I Wanna Be Carioca!
