Furla launches a new concept store that interprets Italian lifestyle in a contemporary key, together with creative spirit, refined design and timeless elegance.Â The new concept store draws inspiration from the architectural details of the Furla’s headquarter, aÂ beautifully restored 18th century Villa in Bologna, where tradition fuses contemporary design.Â Created over 80 years ago, Furla is known for their fine Italian leather shoes, handbags and accessories.
Furla’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection â€œUp I The Skyâ€ features sophisticated and unexpected materials, like Summer Pony and Crocodile with a fine, ultra-soft Nappa finish, feature alongside evergreen leathers such as Ares patterned calfskin and goatskin, hand worked and highlighted by contrasts and overlaps of light and shadow, by shiny and matt effects, and by high-definition color blocks. The iconic Candy Bag takes on new meaning, combining the transparency of PVC onÂ a leather base, for must-have accessories reflecting a skillful balance between heritage and experimentation.
Furla and Haute Living together with former Real Housewives of Miami star Karent Sierra hosted an exclusive event at their new store concept at Village of Merrick Park. Gusts enjoyed cocktails and hors dâ€™ouevres provided by La Bottega byÂ CarmenÂ TriguerosÂ while shopping Furlaâ€™s new Spring/Summer 2014 line. The shoppers also received an exclusive gift from Furla with their purchase.
