Purses have been called “arm candy” for years, and in true testament to that name, Furla designed a range of satchels that are like a sweet treat for your forearms. When Furla first released its …

Furla Fenice HoboJust yesterday I was talking about how I would like to see some larger handbags that have a little more color to them. The See by Chloe Flap Jack Tote was a good example of a splash of color. Then today I came across the every so bright and bold Furla Fenice Hobo. Personally, when it comes to the color red I don’t think I can pull off large bags in that color. However, this bag made me think twice. Once again, Furla does a great job of using soft and touchable leather – always a plus. The silvertone hardware is great. If I could add anything, I might add a bit more hardware; I think it would help break up all the red just a little. I love the pleated and buckle detail along the sides and a top zip closure holds the countless items you might store in this bag. The one other thing I am not completely fond of is shoulder strap with a 7″ drop. For such a large bag, I feel like it might be awkward to carry on your shoulder. But hey, that is just me. Buy through Bluefly for $279.

Furla Ninfea-Grande Chain ShopperI’d like to see the Furla Ninfea-Grande Chain Shopper in person before I make any definitive pronouncements, but I think it might be my favorite spring and summer bag that I’ve seen so far this year. I mean, look at it. It’s so sailor-y. And boat-y. And I feel like I should wear something blue and white and possibly a large straw hat with it. Something with stripes…anyway, yeah, great bag. It’s white, but not TOO white, which can make leather look fake. It’s also got an oversized chain detail, but it’s obscured enough to be interesting and different. The chain is also tonal to the handbag, giving it a leg up over the scads of bags with giant metallic chains. But I have one point of contention, as always – the extra strap. No one needs that strap. The regular straps are plenty long for easy shoulder carrying. And this one does not appear to come off. What a pity. Other than that, we have a winner on our hands here. Now if I only had a boat… Buy through Nordstrom for $595.
