Limited Edition SHOKO for meli melo
Where innovative Illustration meets Luxury Accessories
Introducing the Sleek Stegosaurus Limited Edition Collection to the SS15 line. The Exclusive Collection see’s two creative minds merge to produce a bag that is both enticingly playful and effectively cool. Inspired by her passion for illustration, Creative Director Melissa Del Bono has teamed with Japanese Artist and Blogger SHOKO on a mission to introduce Illustrative art to the Luxury Accessories Market.
‘Illustration is a way of expressing emotion and character through image. I was inspired by a vintage dinosaur toy that my daughter loved. It was more of an ornament than a toy and I loved the futuristic lines and modern art aesthetic that it had. I wanted to create something stylish and individual turning the ordinary and unexpected, into a luxury fashion piece. This collaboration is very personal to me. It’s a lot about contrasts. There is an element of fun and a certain naivety that I wanted to play on with these accessories. The illustrations reflect childhood fantasies yet they are made elegant by the contrasting palette of a beautifully soft dusky lilac and grown-up pastel pink.‘ Melissa Del Bono SHOKO’s designs adorn the signature Thela Bag in medium and mini size. The illustrations are expertly painted onto the finest Italian leather to achieve a discrete matt finish and pristine line representing the freehand nature of Shoko’s work; as if the image has been drawn straight onto the leather. The relaxed nature of the Thela bag allows you to carry a modern print without feeling try hard.
