|As reptile leather is top trendy for Fall Winter 2009 2010, Furla has used it too in plenty. It looks great, especially the bags in bright colors, like red and blue. Besides, many handbags come in suede, that is a luxury-looking fabric too. Clutches are elegant and classic, perfect for evening wear.
There are no huge bags in the collection, the most are of average size that makes them comfortable to wear.
Furla was incepted in 1927 when founder Aldo Furlanetto began his travels across Europe as a trader in accessories. In the Seventies, the torch was passed down to his children; Giovanna, Carlo and Paolo, and they launched the first Furla bag collection. It was instant success. Headquartered in Bologna, Italy, Furla produces many categories of product including; handbags, shoes, small leather goods, belts, scarves, and jewelry. It has established itself as the successful international accessories brand known today.
One of Furla's most exceptional characteristics is its 196 free-standing stores present across 64 countries. The brand is also carried in over 1,000 specialty shops and department stores worldwide.
Furla collections are handcrafted in Italy and are known for simple and elegant style. Made from the finest leathers and materials, the brand continues to invest in research and technology to assure constant innovation in all its lines and categories.
Maintaining the tradition of a decades-long family heritage is a major priority for Furla, and Aldo's three grandsons now work in the company with Giovanna Furlanetto. In 2007, Furla appointed Paolo Fontanelli as Chief Executive Officer presiding over its Corporate office and 9 subsidiaries (USA, France, Spain, UK, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Germany, and Australia). This marked the first time corporate leadership was attained outside the family. It reflects the entrepreneurial spirit to invest in the growth and future success of the company.
