New bags are a study in lightness–and light

PERFORATED Venus bag—very popular among editors

Light.” Furla’s creative director Fabio Fusi answered in one word.  I asked him what inspired him to create this season’s collection.

“We started off with a series of black-and-white photographs and studied the variations of patterned shadows and incorporated them into our bags,” he said.

Precision cuts

The Piper Lux, which headlines the collection, is seen with precision cuts, perforations on the leather body. For Spring-Summer 2013, Fusi also created a new line for the label, which has won many fashion writers over.

My favorite piece is the Venus doctor bag in a very classic shape, and  perhaps one of the lightest doctor bags ever because of the perforated leather. A very nice touch to the monochromatic bag are its handles, in a  contrasting shade to the bag’s body.

KEY element this Spring/Summer season: light

The Amalfi bag, one of the styles from two seasons ago, is a personal favorite, and I was saddened to see it discontinued this season, but Fusi informed me that they plan to bring this style back because of its popularity among their clients.

Another very popular style that has also become a Furla signature piece  is the Candy bag. The Candy becomes crystal clear in degrade and in different color permutations for Spring-Summer 2013, and as Fusi noted, the new Candy bags were a “continuation of the study of light.”
