SHED the red and buck the trend this Chinese New Year with some new arm candy. Spice up your CNY outfit with a striking new Furla handbag — you might even bag one that matches your zodiac animal!
Furla’s latest Jungle Capsule collection features the colours and animals of the forest with 50 exclusive prints for bags like the Club ($1,390), Icaro, Metropolis, and the Vittoria ($830).
The Metropolis ($330 – $860) shoulder strap bags feature the faces of the jungle’s wild inhabitants — panther, lion, monkey, zebra, wolf, and parrot. If you prefer something a little more esoteric and exotic, there are also three tribal themed artistic prints. Totem, Vudu, and Guru designs draw inspiration from ancient civilisations and showcase an attractive array of symbols and tribal and geometric patterns from Indian, South American, and African cultures. If you are a woman about town, the multi-functional and versatile Dafne ($915) might be more your speed. Made from oasis calfskin, the sleek and stylish handbag can also be turned into a backpack or tote by manipulating the strap.
While the ladies have jungle chic men can choose from a range of functional and versatile bags with bold new blue detailing. Made from calfskin, the Icaro ($1,465) backpack is not only a perfect travel companion but also trendy enough for the office. The laser-cut Giove is good if you travel light but the spacious, bindle inspired, Hobo might be the way to go if you take a more abstract approach to packing.
