Ta­mara Mel­lon is res­ur­rect­ing the hal­cyon days of Stu­dio 54 with a lim­ited-edi­tion line of rug­cut­ting plat­form san­dals that are made from silk scarves she sourced from vin­tage shops in Los An­ge­les. From fuch­sia geo­met­ric tri­an­gles to psy­che­delic paint drips, each kalei­do­scopic pat­tern is groovier than the last. The ver­tig­i­nous plat­forms, called the “Kalei­do­scope,” are cre­ated from a sin­gle scarf, mak­ing each pair one of a kind. Even if two pairs are fash­ioned from the same print (one scarf can yield two pairs of shoes), the pat­tern falls dif­fer­ently on each. Mel­lon de­scribes the shoe as “a cel­e­bra­tion of in­di­vid­u­al­ity and un­apolo­getic fem­i­nism.” The dis­tinc­tive shoes are Mel­lon’s way of ob­serv­ing that ev­ery woman is unique. They are set to launch on March 8— In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day.
