Our Heritage


Originally founded in 1946 by Leardo Gabrielli, the L’Alpina brand of clothing soon grew to dominate the fashionable tennis scene in the late 50s and early 60s and was seen as the benchmark for contemporary styling and practicality.

The popularity of the brand, with its unique Kangaroo motif lead to the range of clothing extending from the tennis court to the leisure market and the ‘Australian’ brand was born.

Today, the retro styled L’Alpina range of clothing is still being designed and made in Italy and is exclusively available in the UK from Australian clothing.

It remains the ultimate expression of classic styling, urban chic and sporting excellence thanks to innovative designs and high quality materials.


Australian continues to strive for perfection and the range of clothing is always being added to. In fact, just like the tennis icons of the 60s, we’ve never settled for second best and continue to strive for perfection.

Explore the range of L’alpina inspired clothing throughout this website and continue to aspire to what makes the brand so unique...classic style, uncompromising quality, and practicality.
