tinkling of buds and delicate arpeggios accompany the nymphs in a light round dance of rediscovered magic and serenity.
jasmine, cabiria, juliet… precious gems of innocent beauty. one after the other they greet our awakening. they caress us with fragrant petals and invite us from flowery swings to a dreamlike playfulness.
“blooming world” smells of wonder, a tribute to the childlike amazement which perceives reality with a touch of magic.

a felliniesque curtain, where suspended female figures are unveiled, a bit divas, a bit girls, a bit enchanting, a bit innocent.
fabrics as if out of the chest of a star: flowery jacquards of velvety irises, tassels laminated in rose gold and lace with metallic reflections. in the prints delicate vichy patterns are the graceful background for elegant bouquets of lilies outlined by slender hands, jerseys with micro sequins, transient voile with crystalline tones.
pure white, precious handmade crochet details embellish the plumetis and batiste fabrics in cotton and silk, memoirs of noble ladies of the past.
like spindly amulets made from natural stones elevated with neat crochet work, these earrings will peek out from behind glossy tresses, giving light to your face. they will complete any ensemble with a touch of unaffected candour.
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.
