The first ever Canadian retail location of Italian brand Furla has opened at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Brought to Canada in partnership with Halcyon Brands, the store’s concept is minimalist and sophisticated reflecting Furla’s values of combining authentic Italian heritage with contemporary design. The boutique offers an assortment of women’s small leather goods, shoes, sunglasses and scarves.
“We have seen high traffic on our e-commerce site from Toronto-based customers and have identified this Canadian region as an opportunity for growth,” says Alberto Camerlengo, Furla’s CEO. “We are excited to enter this specific market through such an established shopping centre and offer shoppers the full brand experience in our store.”
Furla was founded by the Furlanetto family in 1927 and continues to be family-owned. The brand stands for quality, colourful creativity, joyfulness and a contemporary lifestyle. They produce bags, shoes and accessories for men and women. The latest from Furla will also be available to Canadian consumers directly from the website starting in January 2020.
