Of French and Italian origins, Elise Brasca is looking for the right balance between
the Milan’s woman, well-groomed and elegant, and the Parisian lady, more daring
and easygoing. She set up Gianlisa, her handbag brand, in 2010 upon returning
to her hometown, Milan, after many years spent in Paris studying.
She first earned a degree in Law, followed by a Master course in European
Business at ESCP. While living in the French capital she had the chance about
the designer to work for some of the most prestigious fashion houses around like
Pierre Hardy, Miu Miu, Dior and Lancel. In particular within the Richemont group
she discovered her current direction, working as a Product Manager for the luxury
handbags department. The desire to create something unique became stronger,
by mixing craftsmanship with precious materials, that may turn an everyday object,
like a bag, into a jewelry piece, with a special attention to details,something original
to love and admire.
Rockmantiques mixes within the collection a rock vibe with romanticism, rigorously
Made in Italy. Her creations are realized exclusively in the Tuscan countryside
by highly skilled hands. Leather is handled in respect of tradition.
Today Gianlisa handbags are distributed in France, Italy, Switzerland and Japan.
