Known for her folklore illustrations and collaborations with labels such Michiko Koshino, Mathces and Topshop, East End based illustrator and designer Vanessa da Silva teamed up with Melissa. Based in East London, Da Silva created a series of illustrations for Melissa’s non-for-sale publication ‘Plastic Dreams Magazine’, which is distributed within the industry.

Da Silva received 'Timecode' as a brief, and came up with the idea of presenting the pages as scarves. On the partnership with Melissa Da Silva said: “I wanted to illustrate the collection in a way that still if you looked at the drawings you would have the desire to wear the shoes. I thought the plastic feel translated into the illustration with that feminine girlie look, which its very Melissa.”
