Chelsea de Luca – Una Bella Vita collection

Posted in Autumn Winter 2010, Designers, Jewellery, Video, Wintergarden by brisbane on January 7, 2010

Brisbane jewellery and accessory designer, Chelsea de Luca, has just launched a preview of her yet-to-be released new collection – Una Bella Vita. 

This is the label’s first collection featuring coloured stones, while still remaining true to the distinct French art deco, yet modern style that has helped Chelsea de Luca establish a cult following. Many pieces have be spotted on celebs such as Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle MacPherson, Roisin Murphy, Kate Miller-Heidke and Dannii & Kylie Minogue, to name a few.

Catch a glipse of the gorgeous collection in this short film …

Chelsea de Luca is stocked in the city at Lisa Ho, Wintergarden. And at her store at 76 James Street, Fortitude Valley.
