In their latest collaboration, Tony Bianco has joined forces with one of the world’s biggest fashion bloggers, Australian fashion blogger Sara Donaldson of Harper & Harley (www.harperandharley.com).
As a an already established ‘friend of the brand’, Sara’s love for the timeless, clean lines of black, white, grey and natural seemed all too perfect for Tony Bianco to pass on, Sara’s aesthetic blends seamlessly with a large proportion of the Tony Bianco range season to season. A huge influence on Instagram, the brand can instantly see results from Sara’s posting, and so contact was made to make Harper & Harley their next collaboration partner.
Sara’s inclusion in the Fashion Bloggers TV show on Foxtel has also provided a platform for both brands to show the extensive detail that goes into creating a shoe range, with Sara’s meetings with designer Anthony Bianco proving instrumental in her time as a footwear designer!
Over a number of months, Sara researched, designed and created a range of exclusive styles for the brand in consultation with the Tony Bianco design team. The range of existing constructions has been tweaked and perfectly matched to Sara’s effortless everyday style.

Sara says of the collaboration “The collection I’ve designed in conjunction with Tony Bianco was developed with the ideology of creating the perfect summer shoe wardrobe, with styles that can be worn almost all year round. I didn’t want to be overly trend orientated, but did want to keep them fresh and up-to-date with what women currently want to wear. To achieve this I’ve kept the colour palette quite versatile and on brand with the Harper and Harley aesthetic, while playing with some flattering shapes and understated detailing.”
