Jelly jiggles into ‘now’

Telfar, known to be the “Black-owned, genderless fashion project founded in 2004 by Telfar Clemens in New York City,” is the latest collaboration to watch with shoe brand Melissa, the leader in jelly shoe fashion.

Unveiled recently in Manila, Melissa’s upcoming collections come at the heels of high-profile design collabs, such as Marc Jacobs, Viktor and Rolf and Karl Lagerfeld.

It is, indeed, “a thrilling double act,” with collaborations featuring “styles that ignite movement and momentum,” as seen in the following must-have pieces:
