Furla's Fifth Avenue location is finally open. Its signage had been up practically forever near the corner of 51st Street and Fifth Avenue, and now the glass doors are open to reveal an elegant space that's coated in neutral and pastel tones and accented with warm lighting. This store's location is marked with a limited-edition collection that's — what else — New York-inspired: think bags, small leather goods, and accessories with abstract skylines, graffiti letters, and cartoon apples.
The flagship is located next to the historic Cartier townhouse — and all of its scaffolding, since it's under construction — and joins similarly fancy neighbors like Versace and H. Stern. On the less fancy end, it'll be across the street from the forthcoming Victoria's Secret, which is filling the giant hole that Forever 21 recently left.
