an enchanted landscape, the delicate image of a fairy nature. fresh and powdery tones of crystallized flowers; magic, luminous sparkles as snow reflections in the sun, infinite greens as infinite woods.
contemporary fairies wear this new winter, a loving tribute to nature as magic and wonder. organic fabrics in natural wefts, furs made of wool are warm and enveloping; soft alpaca gauzed coats draw stylized tree barks. an embracing winter where a magical, so precious nature, holds and rewarms.

fringed tartan over reinvented smokings, pearly embroideries and artisanal knitted cables.. slubbed velvets in boreal shades light up with crystals the starry skies.
tiny flowers are embroidered on candid voiles, silk dresses are painted as illustrated oniric tales. here, elegant winter princesses are the muses of this enchanted wood.
the ethereal transparency of the band made from plaited organza in a pretty powdery palette is counterpointed by the gleaming drama of large crystals and the flirty gracefulness of the fringed effect. a retro-looking choker to be donned with nonchalance for a touch of eclectic sensual femininity.
the story began with a small collection of hand–finished t–shirts. grown in the fashion business, the forte brothers hail from veneto, one of the manufacturing districts in which made in italy has taken its shape and identity over the years, turning the artisanal process into an industrial one while keeping intact its values and peculiarities. giada and paolo have absorbed this ethos since childhood, in the family’s knitwear factories. giada trained at nottingham trent university, where she studied knitwear design, while paolo studied finance. after autonomous experiences in their respective fields, they decided to join forces on a project based on the values they believe in: the beauty of creativity as a filterless bond between the creator and the consumer. giada is in charge of design, paolo is the business strategist. robert vattilana, art director and giada’s life partner, is the third member of the group: the one who translates visions and sensations into images and spaces, or graphic and editorial choices. forte_forte is the offspring of the three’s joined efforts: the family name is doubled, christening the brand with an incitation that is already an expression of strength; the lower case font signals a desire for intimacy as opposed to ostentations.
