Furla is taking arms against gender disparity in music
…and other fashion news you missed
With the drop of its new crossbody bag – the Metropolis Remix – Furla is taking arms against the gender gap in music. With the knowledge that only 20 per cent of musicians are female, the Italian label is set on fostering the next generation of female artists. Pledging to match the total number of sales made from the bag – and there are only 2022 in production – Furla will funnel funds into She Is The Music, a non-profit founded by Alicia Keys in 2018. Launching this week, the bow-shaped, calfskin leather bag features in an accompanying campaign video where DJ Kim Turnbull talks candidly about her experience of gender inequality within the music industry.
