About

OPERA : MORE THAN JUST A BRAND THAT IS A SYMBOL OF FRENCH LUXURY, OPERA IS PRIMARILY THE STORY OF A MEETING, A LOVE STORY…

THE BRAND

OPERA IS THE LABEL CREATED BY COUPLE ALEX LEBLANC (ARTIST, CREATIVE DIRECTOR, PHOTOGRAPHER AND OWNER OF VERTU AGENCY IN PARIS) AND NATALJA BELOVA (MODEL AT NEXT MODEL MANAGEMENT). OPERA WAS BORN FROM THEIR PASSION FOR ALL THINGS LUXURIOUS AND UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL, AS WELL AS A COMMON DESIRE TO CREATE THEIR OWN LABEL AND COLLECTION OF ORIGINAL CLOTHES, ACCESSORIES AND PRODUCTS OF UNSURPASSED QUALITY.

CRAFTING IS SIMPLY ONE OF THE FEATURES OF THE BRAND AND MANY MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS ARE CARRIED OUT BY HAND. IT IS THIS APPETITE FOR PERFECTION THAT MAKES OPERA A LAVISH AND PRESTIGIOUS BRAND.
