MELSANV MADE: The Chloe and Nikol Handbag


So far, you’ve had the chance to meet Ileana, Amy and Jazmin, and now Chloe and Nikol! Two amazing and head-strong women I feel like I’ve know my entire life. Let’s jump into their stories!

Meet The Chloe handbag. She’s the loudest in the bunch. You can see her from a mile away and something about her presence makes you feel happy. I met Chloe sometime in 2009ish, back when the name Chloe was cool before it was cool. We were coworkers at the time and it only took a few meetings for us to hit it off instantly. She was sassy, said cuss words and had attitude and it was then that I knew we’d become best friends.

Chloe’s bright and mixed colors tell you that she’s well traveled. From backpacking in Europe to laying somewhere on a beach in Mexico, this girl knows a thing or two about getting around in the world. The Chloe hand bag will likely be a conversation starter between you and a new friend and she’s the ultimate handbag for getting you photographed at New York Fashion Week. Don’t let her sweet structure fool you though, this girl is street smart and a little rough around the edges. She’s had heartache and struggle, but she’ll never let you see her cry.

Take Chloe with you to Spain! Travel the world and rough her up a bit. Bring her to places where she can hear new stories and connect with different people. She has a personality and story of her own that she’ll shine with just about anything in your closet. Chloe is the the kind of girl you want with you for the long-haul and I personally know that to be true!






Meet The Nikol Backpack. Anyone that knows this girl knows that she bleeds Warriors’ blue! Nikol was one of the first friends I made in San Francisco before I decided to move. We were the last two standing in a networking event and we were hovering around the brownie plate so much we just decided to start a conversation – the rest is history. Whenever I’m feeling like I’m stuck in a rut, I makes sure to get in a mere 15 minute coffee date with this girl and I’m back to new.

Nikol is an artist. She’s obsessed with makeup and loves to connect with people. She’s the first backpack in the bunch and it’s because she needs something that will be in the long-haul when she’s out kicking it with her friends and has space to hold notebooks and receipts because you bet your ass she runs her own business. Nikol’s cool-toned flowers tell you that she’s always chill and only let’s people see her sweat when she’s getting in a good workout. The Nikol backpack is the kind of backpack you want with you from day to night – on the job and after hours. I picked a backpack with some stretch to tell you that she’s always flexible and goes with the flow, but never flake on her. A Capricorn in every imaginable way, the Nikol backpack will be a forever kinda friend from the very beginning.

I hope you’re connecting with these girls as much as I have over the years!

I can’t believe we’re almost done revealing the first set of MELSANV MADE bags! If you’re already eyeing one of these handbags, get your tickets to Femme Fair where you can shop the entire collection! I have one more blog post to share so stay with me – it’s an emotional one! Let’s meet back here in 1100 hours. BREAK!
