Italian accessories and fashion brand Furla has unveiled its SS 2016 collection including several exclusive pieces for travellers and airport shoppers.
The Furla SS 2016 collection recounts a journey through Italy in search of light and its endless shades. Nuances that cut through the new season creating graphic compositions in bold colour blockings for an eclectic day-into-night versatility.
Shell, onyx, acid green, turquoise, sienna brown and lots of deep red bond to playful artsy effects with an Op art twist, appearing on deconstructed shapes with a distinct gender-bender appeal. It’s the lifestyle that counts, one filled with Furla’s quintessential ease, joyfulness and Made in Italy quality.
The latter was pivotal in developing the collection’s practical inventiveness and two-in-one character for which detachable mini bags on roomy totes and clutches serve as both an extra pocket or as the perfect standalone evening style.
More specifically, both the Dama tote and the Fantasia maxi clutch come with a detachable Metropolis bag on the outer flap while the Artesia bag is characterized by a removable inner panel with slots for wallets, smartphone, coins and other everyday essentials.
Similarly, a charming micro Metropolis tempers the tautness of a bi-color Zafiro work bag, a revisited men’s style, while timeless shoppers feature multi-function double-layered pockets. All are laboriously crafted from full-grain calfskin, at times featuring a hammered deer skin effect or printed.
The iconic Metropolis universe is enriched with a larger bi-color version featuring a geometric 3-D printed strap and with painstaking details such as hand-woven flaps and hand-knotted piping for the iconic small size.
Brand new and exclusive to travel retail is the YOYO bag, (pictured above) a Mini Crossbody with a zip top and chain strap available in Conchiglia, Jade, and Onyx. A combination of Ares and Pop Star Leather make the YOYO bag a trendy lightweight bag ideal for travel retail.
Says Furla Global Travel Retail Director Gerry Munday: “I’m delighted that the SS16 offer will include another travel retail exclusive offer. The Piper Medium Dome has been incredibly well-received by our customers and the sell-through is superb. The Yoyo bag is equally perfect for travel retail and complements another amazing collection from Furla.”
The new SS16 collection will be shown on the Furla stand at TFWA World Exhibition.
