Furla hosted a Girl's Night Out event Jan. 16 to celebrate its redesign, at Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.

It was an opportunity to shop the Italian brand's colorful spring-summer 2014 collection, with 15 percent of the evening's sales donated to the Dream Foundation.

I was particular taken by the brand's bright Candy bags, made of a soft type of PVC, some more translucent than others, and some with more "grownup" leather and heavy metal details.

Furla, headquartered in Bologna, was created by the Furlanetto family more than 80 years ago and is one of the few Italian firms today that still maintains family ownership.

Furla's cheery Candy satchels in juicy, citrus colors. The Candy Bag is made of a soft type of PVC, both functional and fashionable. Here's a link to a video showing all the color permutations:
