Meli Melo – Where Italian craftsmanship meets London cool

meli melo thela medium handbag

Meli Melo is now officially my newly obsessed brand from London, the style and designs are casually chic, timeless and also elegant. No loud and big logos at all! (Because I cannot really stand that. LOL) The best thing is, it doesn’t break the bank! Their signature bags are priced around £500 only, totally affordable. Even heiress Olivia Palermo is a fan!

The founder and creative director Melissa del Bono established the brand Meli Melo in 2005, without attending any design school before. She set out to achieve one mission, to create beautifully designed and timeless handbags for real life women.

A lot of her designs are inspired by the wicker basket that Italian women carry every day in the village she grew up in Lipari, Sicily. And you can tell from her designs!

See the top inverted handles? Just like the handles of a wicker basket!

And this textured leather bag Rosalia? It looks just like a basket, with the weaved pattern and even the shape itself! I have always been obsessed with basket myself, so there is no doubt that I am falling in love with this brand!

Even Olivia Palermo is a big fan, she has been spotted carrying their Thela bag a lot! She even has two colors of the same style!


Not to mention her new collaboration of the Meli Melo’s Severine bucket bag, which is a super cute and great for the weekend!
