Marcela Velez and Melissa Losada are Colombian and the designers of M2Malletier – a brand that thanks to its creativity and high-quality, managed, in just three seasons, to make recognisable their designs, something for which most brands need years and years of exposure. The bags appeared everywhere – worn by celebrities and on the street style of the fashion week – two of the most important things in order to succeed.
The two met in New York while studying at Parsons – Marcela, Design & Management, Mellisa, Fashion Design and that’s how everything started, with a project – today it is a fully established company in which both have their role – Marcela is the business mind and Mellisa is the creative one and takes care of the public relations.
M2Malletier handbags have made their way into industry also thanks to the stars of street style: Leandra Medine, Miroslava Duma, Natasha Goldenberg, Natalie Joos, Anya Ziourova. All have been wearing, at some point, their designs.
The Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is inspired by their travel last summer in beautiful Capri, Patmos, Positano and Africa.
