Latest Obsession: Meli Melo Handbags

I had been eyeing these pretties for a few months and then when I saw them on Gaby's blog a few weeks ago I was further convinced that I just needed to introduce you all to Meli Melo. I consider myself a big fan of large, structured handbags and these have all the qualities I look for in the perfect bag. I'm particularly obsessed with the Thela design, but we'll discuss more about that in a bit. Now, so you learn a little more about these beauties, I had the chance to conduct a brief interview with Paola, a sales executive at Meli Melo.


1. When was the company established?
It was established in London in 2005.

2. Where does Melissa Del Bono, creative mastermind behind the line of handbags, draw her inspiration from?
Melissa Del Bono has a natural entrepreneurial spirit, brought up by her English mother and Sicilian father who have been a strong inspiration for her business, in a truly international, multi-cultural background in Sicily whilst always seeking to foster her business savvy spirit and creativity. Her Italian origins and traditions are to her a way of life and these values will always be at the core of her brand ethos and Meli Melo philosophy. Some of Melissa's creations are names after her closest friends or family, allowing her to creadit those around her for inspiring her to continue her dream. Her great passion for interiors and art is reflected in the sculptural and defined shapes of her creations.

3. What makes Meli Melo handbags unique?
Sculpted and skilfully shaped, Meli Melo bags are tenderly made by artisans in Europe with only the most expensive Italian leather, creating a fervent image based on strong designs. The signature bag belonging to the company the 'bon bon' has evolved over the years becoming the face of the company. The infamous 'Thela' bag is internationally sought after and is a 'sell out' sensation. Celibrity clientele such as Olivia Palermo, Poppy Delavigne and princess Kate Middleton are all devotee's of the brand. The company continues to evolve, and now Meli Melo is entering into a more mature stage, taking the current collection to new heights, experimenting with different materials and designs with plans to brand further afield into accessories over time and outside the fashion world.

So, what are your thoughts? Personally, I'm in absolute love and can't wait until one of these beauties is out and about with me in NYC.
