I love my Furla Candy bags
, yes, I said "bags
," as in plural. I have these in four colors: Pink, Avocado (Green), Negroni Orange (Rust), and Uva (Dark Purple). In fact, they make up half of the handbags
that I own. They are absolutely gorgeous. I have a thing for the satchel shape. These ones are a good medium size and have nice clean lines without any buckles, belts
, chains, or anything that makes the designer look like s/he's trying too hard. And of course, the colors are so very bright and unique! Yes, when you first receive this bag, you can smell the PVC rubber, but it's nothing a little airing out won't fix. Some of the colors (like pink and avocado) are fairly translucent, but it seems the newer colors (like negroni orange and uva) are fairly opaque. It is also a very heavy jelly material, so if weight is a problem, these may not be for you. Personally, I like a more substantial bag...it makes me feel like they will last. Also, I notice that the jelly can arrive a little deformed depending on what type of box the seller wants to squeeze it into (often, this manifests as one end collapsing into the bag). I like to store these a little stuffed so they maintain shape. Overall, these are very well made, sturdy bags
that come in a variety of colors I rarely see in handbags
. A fun twist on a classic shape, so to speak. I will continue to purchase colors that tickle my fancy and that I can reasonably see working into my current wardrobe. I'm looking at you, Mango!
