Sports And Style Take Centerstage In Furla’s New Collection
When you think about it, our style sense has always been inspired by our movement.
Furla, a renowned Italian leather accessories brand, interprets the power of movement, strength, energy and balance as it takes its inspiration from sports disciplines for its Fall-Winter 2018-19 collection called Sport Attitude.
From fencing to skating, and boxing to tennis--- the Furla Fall-Winter 2018-2019 selection takes movement on the centerstage, and transports it to the realm of the luxury of taking care of oneself. The collection is about combining comfort and experimentation, functionality and dynamism.
Defined by neat lines, elegant geometric shapes, and ultra-technological finishes of materials, the Sport Attitude collection make use of voluminous leather and versatile calfskins which highlight practical details and use heat-sealing in handmade construction. In this way, the bags acquire the solid structure and strong personality of a handbag and tote, and the practicality of backpacks in a rainbow of colours and materials. The fun side of the sport is captured by the sparkling details of the straps and pouches.
The typical sports imagery is captured through the collection’s well-defined colour palettes commonly used in sports: cherry red, white and black. While the embellishment details feature the shades of wisterias, roses and lilacs, that fade into sky blue and powdery light blues. On the other hand, the prints exude the characteristics of Furla’s creativity, expressing the tales of the universe through writings and symbols.
The new Furla Bellaria comes with its double buckle in Brass and Ruthenium, with the Furla logo imprinted in red on a black plate in the centre. This defining feature recalls the carabiners used in climbing, in its own unique design. Furla Bellaria is a mini crossbody and handbag, available in small and medium, in three colours of onyx, cherry, and slate, all recognisable by the central white element.
The new Furla Fortuna in quilted Nappa evokes the look and texture of boxing gloves. Its bold silver metal closure is eye-catching. This series is made up of a handbag, a shoulder bag and a backpack.
The backpack finds its truest interpretation in the new Furla Favola. Quintessentially urban, it comes in a variety of sizes and materials: from metallic Nappa to pony hair, from classic Wonderland calfskin leather to printed nylon.
Functionality and customization are also highlighted in the Sport Attitude collection.
The Furla Fall-Winter 2018-19 collection offers not only the usual interchangeable My Play Furla flaps, but for the first time, also plays with straps. The iconic crossbody Furla Metropolis boasts of its customizable straps in many variations of length and style, from coloured studs to large plexiglass rings. On the other hand, the Furla Lady can be customized by changing the handle, which can be changed with one of a different colour, or the same as the bag, but decorated with studs and other applications. This monochrome hobo bag is roomy and light, with precise geometric lines.
Large and comfortable, with an internal dual partition: it is the new Furla Reale. An essentially elegant handbag, harmonious in its parallelepiped shape with a double handle, it may also be carried as a shoulder bag. Its main style feature is the large perforated Furla logo on the front pocket.
In the Philippines, Furla is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Central Square in Bonifacio High Street Central, Greenbelt 5, Newport Mall, Rustan’s Makati, and Shangri-La Plaza. Visit ssilife.com.ph or follow @ssilifeph on Instagram for more information.
