Making 40 years of history is not for just anyone. Melissa has developed itself through a powerful past with strong influences in design, the arts, fashion, and people's daily lives. Four decades later, we’re a brand that’s known and enjoyed around the world.
In the late 90's Melissa returned stronger than ever, allied to the disruptive nature fashion was bringing to the end of the decade. Top models’ huge success changed behaviors and influenced both audiences and brands, and ours was no exception. They also served as references, creating and promoting big trends in the market. This is context in which Melissa launched the first TOP Collection, based on the image of muse Claudia Schiffer and marking a turning point for our repositioning.
Years later we created Model, a re-release from the TOP Collection that revives successes from the past with a current, minimalist look. It’s inspired by the great models of the time and has been reimagined especially for our 40th anniversary celebrations. Despite the changes in the fashion world and exactly which concepts make a top model today, we’ve managed to keep Model’s essence in tact throughout all these years.
