As a fashion devotee, business woman and an equestrian, Alexandra is drawn to the design of meli melo bags. Melissa del Bono takes inspiration from equestrian style for key design elements in our own bags

I am independent in all aspects of my life
Alexandra Tolstoy

Which is your favourite meli melo bag?

The Santina bag. With a history of travelling by horse, the Santina bag reminds me of a horse's nosebag!

What makes you a meli melo woman?

I relate to meli melo because I am independent in all aspects of my life. I spent ten years riding horses all over central Asia and Siberia. In Fashion I am equally independent - I don't care what other people think and love to create different and quirky looks, which the meli melo bags fit perfectly into!
