purses and suitecases
The designs were created to help a client with certain wishes for the bags, and were inspired by pictures from holiday- or just countries were the client travels to a lot. Shapes from landscapes (like mountains) appear in the bags, in the decorations and shapes.
Because every country and area has different colors, and because the person for whom the collection would become liked ‘calm’ colors, the colors of the bags are brown and black. Brown occurs when a lot of colors are mixed. When it’s night, everything is black, so that is why there is a lot of black in the bags too. Black also stays beautiful for a long time and it gives the bags a more chic look. The studs are blue and silver, what represents the sky, because the sky has the same color everywhere.
Melanie and her artwork
This collection is designed for a customer with certain wishes. The bags I make vary in style, but have in common that this does not hinder the functionality and that they can be used daily for all sorts of purposes. My personal style is a kind of minimalistic so it is pretty timeless (what is important when you can use a product for a long time)
Practical and stylish, made from good materials that last for a long time
This work stands for a customer with a certain fashion- and lifestyle. The collection is designed for travelling a lot, in style.
Reation to Expo
Good bags and suitcases are essential for travelling. This collection shows that a different style for a travel bag has nothing to do with impracticality and makes it easy to see the world.
