In Item of the Day, What's New by Ann Loynd

Melissa x Baja East

Besides its signature cruelty free plastic constructions, Melissa is best known for its designer collabs. The latest, with NYC luxury brand Baja East, debuted on the runway at NYFW last week. The collection includes a “Thriving” pool slide, desert boot, flatform sandal and bucket bag, all featuring the collab’s signature python texturing.

Available in black, white or pink (shown), the Melissa x Baja East bag features Python texturing and rope closure for depth and material interest. Malleable construction is roomy enough for all of the essentials, and the drawstring bag comes with a clutch perfect for makeup and other small necessities. The Melissa Bag retails for $170 on www.shopmelissa.com.

Always ahead of the curve, Melissa debuted its first U.S. Galeria earlier this summer in NYC, featuring a rotating immersive art exhibit.
