According to Furla Group’s Alberto Camerlengo, this entry into the world of cosmetics is indicative of the brand’s will to diversify and reinforce the standing of its Lifestyle offering. The CEO asserted that the creation of a perfume would increase Furla’s worldwide consumer visibility, expressing the joyful elegance and positivity with which it has become associated.

Ready-to-wear brands have been investing in the beauty sector more and more. Last August, Rebecca Minkoff announced its licensing deal with The Premiere Group under which a new fragrance will be created for a 2020 launch. Celebrities, for their part, are continuing their assault on the cosmetics market, as the likes of Millie Bobby Brown, Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue prepare to launch their own collections.
