Furla Spring Summer 2018
Design as testimony, as evidence of the way people see themselves, and their individuality. Design for humans, in the words of Modernist Austrian architect and designer Richard Neutra. The constant dialogue between fashion and design will, in this spring / summer 2018 collection by Furla, on the one hand underscore the richness of Italian tradition – the fabrics made with ancient Italian techniques, woven on vintage shuttle looms – and on the other hand, the complete customization of the styles, when individuality becomes the main reference point.
Furla Fenice, a tote meets a top handle, a bag for contemporary, dynamic women with a chic, cool touch.
Furla Ducale, with the logo’ed lock and a the cheerful play of the scalloped stitches and the engravings on the metal.
Furla Nuvola, a new incarnation of the classic Metropolis.
Three models repeated in 52 different variations of colors and prints, with a common inspiration: the colors of nature.
52 variations like the weeks of the year: 52 variations to accompany women’s lives throughout the year.
The exclusive designs of Furla – Lavender, Strawberry, Jasmine, Poppy, Woodpecker, Leopard, Flamingo, Zebra, Gardenia, Hibiscus, Toucan, Turtle, Pineapple, Butterfly, Carnation, Kimono, Liberty, Lurex Drops – were crafted on brocades and jacquard, in 52 variations.
Two new models: the Furla Bouganville slipper and the Furla Rialto sandal, developed in all variants of jacquard fabrics with grosgrain onyx and grosgrain silver laminated ribbon (for slippers) and onyx micro petal bottom (for the sandal).
Palazzo Cusani, in Brera’s neighborhood is a gem of Italian Neoclassical architecture – among the many designers who worked on the Palazzo throughout the ages, an essential contribution was given by Giuseppe Piermarini (1734-1808), the architect who designed Teatro alla Scala. Furla is proud to introduce the SS18 collection at Palazzo Cusani: a presentation, and a journey through time. And throughout the different stages of their lives.
A journey from childhood to maturity. A presentation designed in wavy, curvilinear settings, like a woman’s body; a presentation inspired by the purity of beauty. A celebration of women’s sensibility, but also of their pragmatism, of their character. A journey through the different ages of their lives: the childhood games, the sense of joy and abandonment of children rides. The dreams of adolescence, the discovery of love in the teenage years; time shifts, from linear to nonlinear, because the journey is more important than the destination. Weeks go by, then years: the seasons of life. Time becomes circular: the harmony of circularity. No edges. With sweetness, and with imagination’s absolute freedom.
