“We are very excited to be opening our first boutique in Singapore with the new concept shop design,” said Furla Global Travel Retail Director Gerry Munday.

“The Furla brand is very successful globally; however Asia is a vitally important market for us representing 40% of our total business last year and 15% of our travel retail business. So to have such a strong presence in Changi is fantastic,” she added.
