Furla transparent Candy bag

By  |  12 Comments

Prada did it in Spring 2010, but knowing the brand’s luxurious positioning and the price tag that comes with it, the transparent, look-at-all-the-stuff-inside-my-purse never really took off.

We waited anxiously for the likes of Zara and H&M to come up with something similar, but you very well know that never happened either. But it looks like Spring 2011 is going to be the comeback of many things – of colour blocking, retro tailoring, and clear purses.

Furla is releasing a collection of transparent top-handle satchels, made from durable rubber (yep, we didn’t know rubber could be see-through either), that come in colourless clear and a number of refreshing tints, including passion fruit, acai blue and avocado green.

The rest of the world may not like clear handbags that show off one’s expensive possessions and compromise their security as they walk on the street, but that’s because they live in places where mugging is a lucrative career. With the very low petty crime rates we get here in the GCC, it’s relatively safe to get onlookers up to speed on how many bundles of dirham notes you’ve got in there.

It kind of reeks of conspicuous consumption, but so what, right?

The Furla Candy Bag is available online for $195 (~ AED 720) via the Furla e-store, and at local stores for AED 1,090. You can get in touch with Furla in Dubai at 04-3410285 to check if the collection when the collection will be in stock.

    Gorgeous! I’ll definitely be purchasing one. Where did you get the picture of the clear one with red handles and a pink bottom?

      The product shots are from Furla’s press office. Which colour do you want yours in?

        The Furla bag in a clear color with red handles and a pink bottom. Where is it available for purchase? I can not find it available anywhere online or in the stores. I live in the US.

          That may be a limited edition, as well as the clear Candy with a black bottom, and may not always be available online or in stores.

      Go to Furla.com, click on United States or United Kingdom. Then click on Furla Woman -> Bags, you’ll see the Candy bag among the list. A blue Candy is currently available on the US site for $195. Good luck!
