Back to the Roots: Our SS16 Collection

Rich in elegant and timeless accessories, our Back to the Roots collection evokes the luxury of Sicilian lifestyle with the gentle, understated nature of island life.

For meli melo designer Melissa Del Bono, the collection conveys the beauty of the small island of Lipari, just off the coast of Sicily, where she grew up.

The new, assured Military pigment reflects Lipari’s earthy landscapes, while the alluring Marmalade and serene Sand hues rediscover the ambience of Sicilian sunsets Melissa watched as a young girl.

Delicate and tasteful, our contemporary Aztec and White Leopard prints have been skilfully hand-designed to enhance summer wardrobes for many years to come.


After inspiring Melissa to create meli melo’s first ever handbag, the beautiful wicker baskets carried by local women in Lipari have heavily influenced this season’s collection.

Their refined weaves and free-spirited charm have been recaptured through the sumptuously embossed woven leathers that feature on an array of our signature styles.

A unique update of the traditional basket, the Rosalia tote makes its debut in the Back to the Roots collection, giving a masterclass in effortless sophistication.

Suited to the city as much as the beach, this classic accessory is designed to accompany you wherever you venture.


Another addition to the meli melo family is the Azzurra Backpack. Confirming the style is not just for school, this linear bag exudes flair and versatility.

Chic and structured, the essential Floriana is a new cross-body for Spring/Summer that’ll carry you from morning through to evening.


Tenderly crafted in Italy from the finest materials, the Back to the Roots collection revives meli melo’s Sicilian heritage while oozing the brand’s London cool.
