A philosopher once said that our eyes see beauty in changing forms. If we follow this logic, the fall/winter 2012 – 2013 collection of Furla bags, presented on the 24th of February in Milan is nothing but a display of classic beauty. There are only a few designers who can achieve that much and who are able to bring together so many different images in a single collection.

Let’s take, for instance, the fur bags. Who said that this fabric can be used solely for oversized bags? The Italian designers certainly proved it wrong. Trapezoid shaped shoulder bags, clutches and mini messenger bags can also be made of fur. Who said that fur must necessarily be short and gray? With this year’s collection of Furla bags, a few irregular brown spots on white cow fur go perfectly with the color of the strap leather and long haired sheep fur can visually change the design of a bag.

 

Medium sized messenger bags equipped with a chain are a tribute to retro style that is revived not only by the form, but also by the chromatic tones reminiscent of the 80s fashion. The same classical design with which the Italian designers have accustomed their clients characterizes this collection, but there are all sorts of shapes and especially, a variety of colors. A trapezoid bag made of brown leather is adorned with matching reptile skin stripes and equipped with a short metal chain. Gray shades are skillfully combined with brown stripes and a golden clasp. A leather bag bearing a dark burgundy color is equipped with a string of metal chain inserted in the thin leather strap.

The Bon Bon line certainly made the headlight of this unconventional fashion parade where the models – all dressed the same (white leggings and silver ballet flats) – were walking on a totally white catwalk and had their faces concealed by a white curtain. Although the Bon Bon bags are a little nostalgic, they blend perfectly with contemporary trends. Moreover, they are functional, elegant and they bring an explosion of colors: brilliant yellow, vivid orange, lipstick red, neon green and, of course, the troubling purple.

However, if you want to buy a Furla bag without a solid clasp, which is specific for the Italian brand, you should pay attention to Piper Furla, which is, by no means similar to the other models of the brand: the small catch of the bag is made of dark steel; the beige color of the bag is fairly simple, but nevertheless elegant. Piper is a must-have accessory for a real lady.

The laconic style and casual functionality (specific for the brand) were embodied in the queen of this collection – “Furla and I”.  This minimalist medium-sized bag adorned with rivets and zippers was offered in the exceptional Furla shop on Corso Vittorio Emanuele from 24 to 29 February 2012 (during Milan Fashion Week). Very trendy, but also extremely practical, it illustrates the brand’s taste for simplicity, casual elegance and clean lines.
