Luisa Clare is an Australian design label created by sisters Luisa and Carla Sanzone, whose original inspiration for the concept came in 2001 when the sisters came across some leather swatches and fabrics at an industrial centre in Sydney.
These inspired the creation of the first line of Luisa Clare handbags, it was only one short year later that Luisa and Clare were selected to launch their accessories label at the prominent Australian Fashion Week.
Since that time Luisa Clare has grown into a distinctive and exclusive world ranking Australian fashion brand that is sold in some very interesting boutiques across the world.
The label has earned a reputation for unique, handcrafted leather handbags that are high quality, glamorous and feminine works of art; a reputation within Australia and internationally.
Luisa and Carla offer designs that are distinctive for their beautiful hand-crafted embellishments and the special designs printed on superior quality materials. Recognising this flair for the unique, originality and quality the Australian fashion industry awarded the Luisa Clare label as Best Accessory in 2006.
2006 also saw the launch of an online boutique to showcase all of the Luisa Clare products and editorial content from around the world.
July 2007 saw the birth of the first Luisa Clare European Showroom followed by the Luisa Clare expansion into the United States with a Los Angeles Showroom in 2009.
Every season Luisa Clare continues to release gorgeous collections hand-crafted from the label’s signature soft leathers and superior finish. The label produces fashionable pieces that are also enduring designs with fundamental value and appeal for the collector.
Every collection also contains special limited edition pieces offering distinction in design and technique that are timeless conversation pieces.
Luisa Clare have also extended their range to include a collection of stunning clothes. The Spring Summer 2011-12 Collection is available from the 1st August 2011.
The Spring Collection is stunning, summery and steamy all at once; while retaining a sense of fun and light-heartedness. Consisting of 8 different material prints the collection contains 42 pieces. The pieces share that stand out quality and unique spark so ingrained in the Luisa Clare label.
Original prints in the collection with names like Giraffe, Nautical Dreams and Fireworks evoke imagery that is unusual and distinctive; and that would be right on the money. These pieces may have classic cuts and styles but the original prints make them stand out and demand attention.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
