MIAMI: 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers

Known for its innovative designs and superior materials and craftsmanship, Brazilian shoe brand Melissa has opened a pop-up shop on Lincoln Road in Miami’s South Beach. This gallery-like space stocks the complete range of jellies alongside designer collaborations, including its most recent with Karl Lagerfeld. And just in time for Art Basel, this South Beach space has partnered with Chilean-born, New York-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz for a shoe installation and exhibition entitled 12 SHOES for 12 LOVERS. Featuring 12 shoe sculptures each inspired by a former girlfriend, Errazuriz explores the boundaries of art and product design using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology. The exhibition will be unveiled Thursday, December 5th, and will be on view for one month. So for those headed south for Art Basel, be sure to check out the unique footwear range and its corresponding art installation. –Sarah Ryan Hecht
