While some people were busy working on their tan this summer, Olivia Palermo has had her head down, working hard on yet another design dream-team pairing in her latest collaboration with one of our favorite accessories brands, Meli Melo. Having been a fan and supporter of the brand since it’s inception back in 2005, it was only natural to take this adoration for each other to the next level and finally collaborate on what has resulted in the absolutely stunning Severine collection.
“Olivia Palermo brings New York-cool to our London brand, and we are super thrilled for this collaboration. By adding two new limited-edition colors, Olivia adds to the design her fashion-forward vision and rich, timeless style.” – Melissa del Bono
Known for their high-quality design and exquisite craftsmanship, Meli Melo has created The Severine collection in order to bring an original and structured shape to a woman’s wardrobe. Modeled after the sculptural works of late architect and artist Max Bill, these pieces helped to provide a starting point in developing the organic and continuous shape of the hardware for this modern spin on the bucket bag.
“Craftsmanship has always been important to me, and Melissa understands that, which is why working together is seamless. The Severine bag is the latest extension of the brilliance that is meli melo.” – Olivia Palermo
The bag comes in five brilliant shades. At the core are, Liquorice Black, Poppy Red and Primrose Pink with two new special-edition colors, Olivia Palermo’s Hues – Bianca White (symbolizing Olivia’s monochrome chic style) and Cardinal Burgundy (representing Olivia’s eclectic, yet polished touch). With it’s sleek exterior of buttery-soft Italian leather and interior fabric bursting in a colorful ikat floral, the Severine also sports an oversized knot feature for added dimension, a long tubular strap for versatile styling and embellished abstract geometric charms resulting in a truly sophisticated look.
