wpid furlass10 flagship collection1 - Furla Flagship Collection While it may not be the most original of ideas (Chanel did it first), it is interesting to see other brands coming out with their interpretations of the humble paper or plastic carrier all ‘glammed-up’ and used like an actual bag, or in this case, tote. Loewe will also be launching theirs soon, a full calf leather bag thats looks exactly like a brown paper bag. And while I was shopping at ION Orchard last week, I spotted these at Furla’s newest boutique on Level 3 opposite Marmalade Pantry.

It is not surprising that so many brands are bringing out such totes. Perfect to use to carry around your shopping or personal items, they go well with everything from your corporate get-ups to?designer clothes.

Called the Furla Flagship collection, each silkscreened canvas tote is made to look like a mock paper bag, with the plastic handles that are actually leather. Retailing for SGD399 each, each slightly bigger than A4 tote comes with the country’s flag on the front, along with Furla’s flagship address of that particular country in front.

Personally I wouldn’t mind checking out the one from Russia or Japan, but those pieces will be coming to Singapore early next month.

I am so missing London. And Paris…

wpid furlacheetah ponyhair candy collection - Furla Cheetah Ponyhair Candy Collection Fans of the now iconic Candy, take note. Furla unleashes their inner beast this F/W12 with the?Furla Cheetah Ponyhair Candy collection, a pair of rubber bags that are finished off with cheetah-print ponyhair at the base as well as long leather shoulder straps.

And even though it’s officially referred to as the ‘cheetah’, I can’t help but be reminded of Cruella de Vil from 101?Dalmatians. It’s so her, down to that splash of pink on one of the bags. Retailing for 800-something in Singapore (I haven’t got the exact price yet), the 30 cm by 20.5 cm bag will be released in Singapore come late September 2012.

Cheetah? Or dalmatians? What say you?

wpid furlaglitter candy bag1 - Furla Glitter Candy Bag There’s no escaping the Candy Bag craze, having seen it all over town on women from ages 16 to 46. It’s no surprise either, given that fact that they are pretty affordable to begin with, on top of being relatively easy to maintain as well as being quite lightweight.

For S/S11 they had light, translucent bags. For F/W11, they went darker and a tad more mature. To round up the year, they’ve got something with bling for the Holiday 2011 collection, the Furla Glitter Candy Bag in Gold which looks set to be another hit.

No word yet on the prices but I’d expect it to be around the SGD500 mark, with the first shipment due in Singapore come late November.

When it comes to handbags, Burberry’s would not be first label I’d pick bags from. Most of their designs do not appeal to me. Although they do look sleek and preppy, it’s just not the style I would immediately like.

But that may all change with this Nude Collection, which is set for launching today, the first of September, in connection with the launch of their newest fragrance named Body.


I like the fact that these handbags are totally without frills and embellishments. Made of leather and suede, these are really elegant and has none of that plaid print Burberry is known for. Designer Christopher Bailey definitely made sure to play it all up on the bag’s material and design.


This bowling bag lends a fresh look, I cannot help but love it.

And this clutch bag, with its exotic python leather, is a total beauty:

The Nude Collection actually also includes apparel and other accessories, all to tie up with their newest fragrance.

wpid furlaroyal - Furla RoyalIf you look into my bag, the first thing you’ll most likely see is the Furla Royal, truly one of the best kept secrets as far as clutches/bag organisers are concerned. Sold as a set of 3, each pouch is made of real leather, Saffiano to be exact, a grained leather that’s rather tough and durable.

Besides being made of leather, the pouches are fully lined on the inside, and they all come with a top zip opening for easy access. The largest of the 3 also comes with an additional leather sling, which means you can use the 25 cm by 19 cm leather pouch as a clutch.

The other two measure 21 cm by 15.5 cm and 16.5 by 12 cm respectively, with the smallest good for keeping basic makeup essentials for the ladies, or used as a small lunch pouch.

Available in a wide range of colours (current season offerings include Fuchsia and Navy) along with staples like Red and Black, you’ll be spoilt for choice. What’s more (and this could be best part), they only sell for SGD220 for a set of 3 which is truly one of best deals you’ll ever find as far as genuine leather is concerned.

And check out the Furla Classic?as well, a trio of 3 leather pouches that sells for SGD190 a set and is great for makeup. So who’s getting one?

wpid furlasunset candy - Furla Sunset Candy Whilst this could already be my 385th post on the Candy, I doubt most of you (especially the hardcore fans) would mind, especially when it comes in such a special treatment. Known as the?Furla Sunset Candy and due to be launched in Singapore come April 2013, it’s a see-through vinyl bag with a slight difference.

If you look closely, you’ll see a gradation of colour from purple to blue, also technically known as ombre that’s a lot more interesting than say, a solid-hued one or one that’s just transparent. Everything else is the same and the bag will come with its standard issue accessories, including a shoulder sling, a bag charm and a padlock to complete its look.

And a quick tip for those who love the bag but are paranoid about others seeing its contents. Just get any dust bag in black (or in a nice matching hue), pop your essentials in and then put the whole thing inside your Candy. That’s it really. No word yet on the retail price in Singapore so do expect another update soon.
