meli melo is a combination of designer Melissa Del Bono’s rich Italian and patriotic English Heritage, paired with the inspiration from her daily life. Named after a mix of Melissa's playful nickname and a mishmash of her creative and cultural influences, meli meli retains a unique DNA of luxury Italian Design and raw London Cool.
An Island girl at heart, Melissa had been inspired by the large wicker baskets that the local women would carry on the volcanic Aeolian Island of Lipari, Sicily, where she grew up. In 2005, having never been to design school, Melissa drew her take on the local fisher women’s basket, interpreting the relaxed shape and the inverted handles from the traditional design. At a time of ‘it’ bags and logo loving, Melissa saw a gap in the Luxury Accessories market for beautifully made Designer Handbags without the extortionate price tag and harsh branding. She wanted to create effortlessly stylish bags that women could wear everyday. The timeless shape and buttery soft Italian Leather of every meli melo handbag meant that the brand soon became a go-to label for industry insiders and A-List names alike. Today, the brand is worn by the world’s most stylish A-List Celebrities, including Olivia Palermo, Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge. Each and every bag continues to be Made in Italy and Melissa goes to great lengths to ensure the finest leather and materials are used by her team.
