Leave it to fashion titan Karl Lagerfeld to make these jelly shoes even more covetable. He has collaborated with Brazilian shoe brand Melissa yet again for the holiday season, with footwear that you’ll want to grab as soon as you can.

Available in Melissa stores from December 6, 2014, the new Melissa shoes and Karl Lagerfeld collection reinvents the Brazilian jelly shoe brand’s classic styles with felines and pretty pearls.

The pair that you’re likely to wear-to-death will be the Melissa Ultragirl + Karl Lagerfeld (as seen above), which features a wide-eyed cartoon motif of the fashion designer’s beloved cat Choupette; it’s available in five punchy colour combinations.

You can also count on more fun, slightly surreal details from the designer. After putting ice-cream cones on chunky heels of his previous Melissa collection in 2013, the fashion kaiser has moved on to a new design, the quite literal Melissa Pearl; a stack of pearls form the stiletto heel of this shimmery style. There’s also another topsy-turvy style (Melissa Up Side Down Heel + Karl Lagerfeld) which flips the typical shoe heel the other way up to create yet another unusual peeptoe stiletto-like style.

See over 20 styles of the new Melissa x Karl Lagerfeld here, and start shortlisting your must-buys before the launch date nears.

Prices for the latest Melissa x Karl Lagerfeld line range from $175 to $295 and will be available in stores from December 6, 2014.
