From rock and roll to pop music, the masses have always been fascinated with the culture of liberation and respite that the music scene portrays. In the new Fall/Winter collection of 2016, FURLA has drawn inspiration from the rebellious spirit of the music that we love and breathed life into a collection of edgy bags and two fully customizable models with a total of 8,500 different combinations, made just for the ones with a unique style and attitude of their own – Made For You.
The new collection released for Fall/Winter 2016 feature contemporary laser cuts in mesmerizing kaleidoscopic patterns, which create a more dimensional depth of field.
