Tuesday’s unveiling of Furla’s Spring/Summer 2016 Collection ‘Lights of Colour’ weaved a perfect marriage between functionality and design aesthetics.

Known for its plethora of colourful bags in all sizes, from clutches to Mini Crossbody to elegant carryall satchels, the Italian leathergoods brand has rolled out several new additions to its existing range of bag designs, as well as updated takes on the popular Metropolis and mini candy bags. 

Some of these include the Artesia with its geometric design and removable inner panel with slots for wallets, smartphone, coins and other everyday essentials, the roomy Fantasia tote, and the Luna Hobo bag which is shaped like a crescent moon.


One notable design this season though is Furla’s Yo-Yo bag (below, last row) which features the Mini Crossbody design and comes with a zip fastening and chain strap. According to the brand, this bag is ideal for travel since it is small in size and light weight at the same time. It is perfect for packing in my currencies, credit cards and passports. I can even throw in my makeup and cosmetics while I am on the go. How wonderful is that? 


But if you ask me, the Metropolis Mini Crossbody with op art twist is the one that truly caught my eye (and one that I can foresee myself carrying in all occasions). Available in carmino red and turchese blue, the bag exudes a unique deconstructed take – a twist that Furla has added – by incorporating precise leather weaving to create the abstract patterns. 

Simply put, you can ALWAYS count on Furla for a vibrant and trendy selection of bags (and furry trinkets) that are bound to make statements in one’s outfit– all set for a joyful spring and summer season. 

Furla Spring/Summer 2016 collection is priced from SGD $500 onwards.
