Travel and fairy tales for Furla's Talent Hub Collection

Travel and fairy tales are the guiding themes once more for the Furla Talent Hub accessory collection this year.

After chasing the White Rabbit to Wonderland and searching for the Wizard of Oz, the concept of the collection moves between the planets of the Solar System, together with a blond child: the Little Prince.

The collection evokes the immaterial nature of a metaphorical journey, the colours are pale and white predominates. The prints retrace the steps of the Little Prince, along with representations of the symbolic figures that accompany him: the rose, the aeroplane, the fox and naturally his blond hair and curious expression. The planets float on glossy surfaces and the various elements are lit up with the colours of fluorescent pink, his hair and spinning tops.

The collection is aimed at travellers, and once again comprises all the accessories needed to accompany adventurous spirits with a desire to make discoveries and lose themselves.

The designs were a result of a partnership between two young design minds - Juan Caro, a South American who specialises in visual arts in Europe, and Fabio Sasso, an Italian student at Dams in bologna, who conducted research into the relationship between art and fashion while training as a tailor.

Bags, practical, capacious shoppers, cosmetic cases, briefcases and handbags, the special new features of which are the clasps: little plaques, like asteroids containing the message revealed by the story of the Little Prince. We only really see with the heart.
