Wednesday afternoon I was invited by Furla to see their amazing collection for the f/w 2011 in their showroom in Via Sant'Andrea.
The main concept of the collection is the inspiration 'of the 1959s rivamped with some contemporary elements and patterns.
I like especially color-blocking bags because I think that this trend will caracterized all the following winter... Interesting, too, the variety of materials: deer, ostrich print, pvc, intrecciato leather. The shape of the "intrecciato leather bag" is classic but the lavoration and the "degradation" of the nuances of greens of these bags is wonderful. It's also really cool the "mongolian fur", that is a nice alternative to the "fur bags" and "shearling ones" of the last winter. Pvc is used to make the young, chic, "mini-bags" that you see in a lot of glamorous color in the first pic. Another kind of bag is the studded one, with zips which represent a trendy kind of "rock-beauty". My favourite is the gold one.
In the end, there is a "classic and innovative", speaking about shapes, bag that is available in a "big and small version". This model is purposed in other color and is one of the most important model of the collection,.
So, I found this collection rich of innovative and fashion, with a "retro touch" that is something always cool, ideas.
