Established in 2012, M2MALLETIER is a luxury handbag brand conceptualized and designed in Barcelona. Reminiscent of works from French interior designer Jean-Michel Frank and Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill, the brand’s philosophy is interpreted as the unification of two fundamental cultural movements: Minimalism and Surrealism. M2MALLETIER combines influences from the world of architecture with the world of history – referencing medieval armor and thought-provoking tools relevant to the time period. The brand pays homage to iconic pioneering women such as one of the 20th century’s most daring and influential patrons of the arts- Vicomtesse Marie-Laure de Noailles- with its unexpected and trend-setting designs.
Design duo Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez, who met one another at Parsons School of Design in New York City, envisioned a handbag that preserved the two designer’s Colombian roots while transforming traditional leather goods into an intelligent, extraordinary piece for collectors of the remarkable and unexpected. Melissa and Marcela have continued to define their own distinct vision of blending unparalleled luxury with notable architecture. The result is both enchanting and unmatched – a progressive design enhanced with an aesthetic that is rooted in a modernized old world sensibility. A forward, inimitable linear handle inspired by medieval tools and armor, a hallmark of M2MALLETIER, perfectly articulates unforgettable glamour and spontaneity evident in the brand’s avant-garde designs.m2malletier.com
