The new concept store draws inspiration from the architectural details of the beautifully restored 18th century Villa in Bologna, Italy – headquarter of the brand – where tradition fuses with contemporary design.

Elements such as the architraves of the doors, the profiles and the frames of the walls and of the ceilings have been transferred and declined in a retailing concept able to reflect the mood of the company in a dynamic and modern way.

Giovanna Furlanetto, President of Furla, says: “This boutique is amongst the first ones in the world showing the new concept store of the brand, first launched in Asia Pacific in last August, thus confirming its international vocation and in line with the ambitious and significant developing plan of the company abroad.”

Now there are four major stores and corners that have opened in Greenbelt 5 and Rustan’s Makati in Makati City, Shangri-la Plaza Mall in Mandaluyong City and Newport Mall in Pasay City.

An Italian family-owned company founded by the Furlanetto family in 1927, Furla is one of the major players in the worldwide leather goods market.

For the Spring Summer 2013, light is the source of inspiration of Furla’s new collection. Alternations of light and shade, shot in the carvings and piercings of the leather, in the three dimensional printings, in the black and white contrasts.

While meadows, leaves, hills, at the zenith time, inspire a dazzling palette in the infinite shades of green, emerald, olive and lime. Softer nuances, cipria, marble and vanilla, evoke the petals of the flowers in their brightest splendor. And when the light reflects on the sea bright tones and transparent PVC, like in the Candy Bag, they catch its constant movement. At its highest intensity, the light transforms everything and as in an overexposed and hyper-realistic picture, colours become fraught, papaya, turquoise, ocean, juice and lime on a white background for a season full of life and energy.

Metropolitan Chic
The Spring Summer 2013 collection boasts of avant-garde sophistication in the form of straight, asymmetrical cut garments. Layering is encouraged through transparency tricks. A must-have look for the season features skinny cigarette pants with a bandana underneath a bolero jacket. Bershka puts a feminine touch on leather and bomber jackets by using vaporous fabrics and flower appliques. The use of soft natural colors like nude and pink contrast to the anthracite and champagne shades. Sorbet tones like coral and yellow enhance the fluorescent pops of color that are dispersed throughout the collection. Lime green footwear is very eye catching and complements the trends well.

The Bershka girl traces her roots to folk origins by matching retro-style urban wear with bleached denims. Ethnic influences in the form of ikat embroideries and Indian patterns are paired with metallic appliques. Vinyl and acrylic jewelry and bags are great accessories to enhance the geometric cuts. Transparent box type carry ons have foil-type finishes that give a mirror-like quality to the total look.

The Bershka girl relaxes with her Boho dresses that show off gradient pleating and lace relief but come party time she stands out with sequins and iridescent animal prints full of metallic and trinket appliques. The shoe collection amplifies last year’s biggest trends. Wedges, flat shoes, and high heels are laid on with spikes, studs and metal fixtures. The use of Napa leather, suede, and vinyl ensure long-lasting comfort.

Diversely Fresh
Denim influences all kinds of garments in Bershka Men’s Gentlementality line. Main items include baggy trousers that taper at the bottom, loose fitting trousers with a slim touch and comfortable garments mixed with modernized versions of classic pieces. Printed stripes and false plain shirts and T-shirts are popular.
Earth Lab, on the other hand, focuses on comfort with comfortable and fresh items created in linen and fabrics such as fine knits with a net effect. Tans and sandy tones are combined with camouflage prints and stonewashed denim.

For a more cosmopolitan look, the Night Buster line features new baggy sized T-shirts, jackets and jumpers as their key items. The Korean parka has also been reinvented with lighter fabrics ideal for summer nights.
Casual yet formal, the Dip & rise line features preppy styles where blue is the main color, and cotton chino pants and shorts are main items. Sorbet-dyed pieces are mixed with blue shades and overprints on polo shirts and T-shirts set the tone for this trend.

It’s going to be an exciting summer with the arrival of Bershka!

Lacoste LIVE! SS2013 Launch

Since 1933, LACOSTE has been the most beloved crocodile, outfitting generations of tennis athletes, prep boys and country-club girls. The brand has been singularly responsible for skyrocketing the preppy trend during the 80’s, filling the world with pastel pique shirts, sweaters, and chinos, and ever since then, LACOSTE has been a household name. But now that the brand is 80 years old, LACOSTE decides to live on the edge, with the younger, hipper, and so much cooler, LACOSTE L!VE.

And because we have it now in New Glorietta! Its time for a celebration!

Its Spring Summer 2013 collection mixes the florals of the wild, untamed beaches, and off-the-radar destinations for a look that is well into the underground yet brimming with the energy of the now.

Its Spring Summer 2013 Women’s Collection is divided into three categories: Acid Coral, Wild Flowers, and La Piscine. With acid washed denims paired with the hues of the psychedelic sunset, Acid Coral presents summer essentials like white bikinis, low-cut cotton tees, hot pants and tube dresses, in color-ways that are a trip in its own.

The Men’s Spring Summer 2013 LACOSTE L!VE Collection remixes the old-school with the futuristic for a rocking collection built on wanderlust and hedonism—for really bad boys with really good style! LACOSTE L!VE’s Sabali Collection takes the men to Africa where ochres, rusts, oranges, and reds collide with geometric tribal prints for a collection grounded by an excellently-tailored khaki bomber.
