embracing and being embraced, as if by the soft clouds of a sunset on the horizon. pet the soft fur of a fawn. touch impalpable silk rainbows in autumn skies. being enveloped, like a precious bud, in petals of crumpled silky sheets. whispering the rustle of forest leaves. breathing in spicy fine woods and incensed waxes.
discover “embrace”, the new autunno 2021 collection.
lookbook autunno 2021
“embrace” seduces and envelops, tickles, cuddle and accompanies an awakening of the senses. a tactile journey among poufs in sugary eco–furs and luxurious sable cloths, among languid frosted velvets, among velvet denims and fluid laminated velours, among cupro moires and faded chiffons, among voluptuous silk satins, printed cashmeres and plumetis laces, among silver cavallinos and delicate suedes. sweet, musky, enveloping, profound and frothy colours: chocolate, purple, caramel, cream, vanilla, cameo, love, mauve, rose, pink, breeze.
like an artisan work, these earrings are wonderfully asymmetrical, almost organic. the pearl on the side adds a precious touch with a sensual allure.
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.
