My Honest DeMellier Bag Review

Everyone needs at least one chic, well-crafted handbag. Whether you use it for work, travel, or everyday use, a handbag should be both functional and stylish. London-based handbag brand, DeMellier, is known for crafting handbags that are just this. Made of durable, high-quality materials, DeMellier’s handbags combine both traditional and innovative chic styles. Because of the price point, some people question whether DeMellier bags are worth the investment; however, I am dedicating this post to sharing my honest review of DeMellier and determining whether or not their bags are worth the price tag.

And, if you decide you want to invest in one of these bags, there’s no better time than right now, with sales going on at Matches, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus!

New York Mini Croc-Embossed Top-Handle Bag

Mireia Llusia-Lindh founded DeMellier in 2010 and originally named it MILLI MILLU. However, she rebranded her company in 2017 and chose the name DeMellier, combining both the old and the new of her family history: “De” comes from Llusia-Lindh’s grandmother, and “Mellier” comes from her own first name. These chic handbags are not only trending now, they have been a hit with celebrities and royalty alike for years, from Duchess Camilla to Pippa Middleton and Princess Beatrice. Additionally, both Vogue and Cosmopolitan featured DeMellier.

Montreal Taupe Smooth

I adore my Montreal bag from DeMellier. It’s the perfect accessory for every outfit, effortlessly transitioning from casual to dressy to workwear. The smooth taupe color of this bag I’m wearing is incredibly versatile, complementing every look and making it an essential addition to my wardrobe.

Is DeMellier A Luxury Brand?

The designs created by DeMellier range from innovative to traditional – something for everyone. Due to its price point, top-tier materials, strict attention to detail, and care that it puts into its products, DeMellier is without a doubt a luxury brand. Also, to minimize waste and excess inventory, DeMellier makes every bag at a small, family-owned factory in Ubrique, Spain. In addition, the Leather Working Group certifies DeMellier’s leather suppliers, a nonprofit that audits leather makers’ environmental practices. DeMellier uses by-products from the meat industry in Italy or Spain. They do this instead of using hides from animals bred only for their hides. Through these practices, DeMellier ensures that they are using sustainably sourced Italian and Spanish materials and being environmentally and socially conscious. In my opinion, these are the kinds of things that make a brand worth the investment.

One of my favorite things about DeMellier is that they play an active role in giving back to the community. Founder Mireia Llusia-Lindh has always been passionate about using DeMellier to help others, particularly children. Since they embarked on their mission, the DeMellier Foundation has funded 170,000 vaccines for children around the world through its “A Bag, A Life” initiative in collaboration with the charity “SOS Children’s Villages.” Through funding these vaccines and medical treatments, they have truly shown themselves to be a high-quality and socially conscious brand.
