If your great-grandmother had any kind of taste (as well as being rich and living in Bologna) she most probably owned several Furla purses. Furla have long since established themselves as the discerning woman’s purse — great style without lacking in substance.
It’s not quite as easy to get hold of as, say, Balenciaga or Ferragamo (just a few boutiques in major cities like New York), but it’s worth taking the time to find the perfect one because they are just beautiful.
The purse you see here is the Phoenix, and it is about as cute as a purse gets without becoming twee. It’s from the fall/winter collection, and just the epitome of cold-season luxury… in fact, I’m already trying to figure out how much money I might get if I sold my hair.
Two hundred years of Italian craft just can’t be wrong!
