The Art Bag was created by Melissa del Bono and Federica Fanari.
Melissa, creative director of meli melo, and Federica, an art collector, share a passion for the world of contemporary art which influenced the art bag collaboration.
Federica was inspired mainly by two female artists, Olivia Steele and Rebecca Ward.
Olivia Steele harnesses the power of neon to assert symbolic phrasing that allures and provokes.
Rebecca Ward works are influenced by Minimalism, Abstract Art and Arte Povera: her varied practise surrounds the iconography of feminine gesture, contemporary Americana culture and craft.
Paired with Melissa’s modern and contemporary handbag designs, they created the statement and empowering Art bag.
