Inside Melissa's World - August

This month meli melo's Creative Director and Founder, Melissa Del Bono has gone back to her roots on a Summer vacation to
the beautiful Aeolian island of Lipari where it all began. 
Prepare to have serious vacay envy! 

Melissa spent her childhood  growing up on the idyllic Italian island and her inspiration for the iconic Thela tote bag stems from here.
The island's traditional wicker baskets are what inspired the designer, she recalls as a young girl how she would carry her handmade basket where ever she went. 

‘it was a huge wicker basket and I took it everywhere! We were inseparable! I would find any excuse to take it out with me. I just wanted something pretty to carry on my arm like the ladies in the villages did.’

The perfect and most fun mode of transport on the island are the classic Italian Fiat 500.  
My bespoked Daily Mint clutch is the ideal accessory for a spin to the beach, don't you think?
Our meli melo Piaggio Ape car is a little piece of Italy in London, it's the only way to travel between shows at fashion week. 

Picture perfect scenes are at every turn around on the island. 
"When I am here I love taking in the atmosphere and beauty that surrounds you. 
From quiet ports to historic buildings, inspiration is here in an abundance"

Although it is so difficult to leave my Italian paradise I am excited about what's in store when I'm back in London! 

We have just launched our very own mobile shopping app, which you can download here . Now it's easier than every to shop your favourite handbags whilst on the go!

Fashion week is coming up and at meli melo HQ we have been planning something fun to share with you!
