ANNIVERSARY IN RIO: Melissa, the plastic shoe company that seems to have developed collaborations with nearly every major designer over the last few years, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a blowout on Oct. 27 in Rio de Janeiro (the company is based in Brazil). The company has rented a colonial home overlooking Guanabara Bay for the occasion, within which different exhibits will be set up to showcase previous collaborations, notably one with Zaha Hadid, as well as the history of the brand, and the way in which the shoes are made. (A machine will be brought in to create miniature samples of the shoes.) For those without an invite but eager for a backstage glimpse, there’s plenty of time: The exhibit, titled “Melissa Eu! Celebrating 30 years of dreams in plastic,” will be open to the public for three weeks following the party.
