At the end of Portobello officially deemed “cool” by the locals you will find a little shop filled with beautiful bags. Created in 2005 by Melissa Del Bono, meli melo is a British luxury brand offering handbags and accessories made in the finest Italian leather. If you are into it-bags, look away now. At meli melo, it is about creating something different, unique and timeless. Of course all the bags I saw there have the potential to become it-bags but they are better than that. I paid a neighbourly visit to the store and snapped my favourite pieces for this Spring/Summer. Have a look…
This Sicilian head stole my heart. Sadly it didn’t fit in my bag, otherwise I would have kidnapped it
The best way to find out how to wear your Thela
My personal fave: the Thela prep apex in red suede. To let you in on a little secret, I left with one and I can’t stop staring at it.
If you are not in the market for a new bag you can also go for some of their cute accessories such as the Leonie bracelet. It would make a great birthday present for your BFF!
Another one I love is the Thela prep clutch in snake skin and paint splatter. SO cute!
The pièce de resistance is of course the emblematic Thela bag.
The ID Stone // The ID Spot Snake // iPad Case Spot Snake
Last but not least, the bag that started it all: the Bon Bon!
