I wanted to share with you some snippets of inspiration from my travels this Christmas and of the new Spring Summer Collection.
This Christmas I returned to the magical volcanic islands of Sicily and the Aeolian Islands where I was born and raised.
Staying in a beautiful monastery on the side of Mount Etna, I was struck once again by the magical power of this live Volcano and I marvelled at the incredible fertility in terms of amazing Kiwis, Clementines, Lemons that this land can bring and how amazing it was that so many people chose to live in such close proximity to a volcano in return for such divine riches of the land.
Seeing Father Christmas arrive by fisherman boat in the sea was magical….
My new Spring Summer Collection has now launched and is available in some of our exclusive stores. My inspiration for this collection has been pops of colour mixed with timeless shapes. Our Hero the “Thela Bag” has been given interchangeable loops which you can mix and match with your outfit. The Backbag is a new statement piece for that sport luxe look. I took my blue one on holiday and couldn't part with it, it has all the right 'C's… comfortable, cool and overall so chic ...
2013 has been an amazing year for meli melo with the launch of our first store in Notting Hill, London.
We hope that 2014 is just as exciting.
