“supernova” is colour irradiation, vibration, sonority.
it is a memory from the 80’s, a shimmering souvenir: no nostalgia, just the desire to joyfully paint our present and future with bright colours. a threshold to overstep and go elsewhere, to reach a place where opportunities thrive...and technicolour patterns where girls, shining like stars, can dream again. an invitation to leave our comfort zones and explore the galaxy surrounding us... it’s a positiveness, carefreeness and energy explosion. the desire to discover the pleasure of regaining every single moment, enjoying it to the fullest.
lookbook primavera 2022
a fresh and sparking cocktail of different fabric types – always surprising, never obvious. jacquard fabrics looking like graffiti, metropolitan street art scattered with flowers. fluo matelassé fabrics with printed bleach denim, bold and bright jacquard lace; cupro, viscose, silk with saturated – sometimes fluo – hues.
overdyied, pop flower and “ramages” prints, striped cotton jersey, tulle for rock ballet dancers; mouliné, inlaid, print yarns, textures from a paint by pollock and basquiat. playful and new silhouettes come to new life for a revival of the 80’s, revised in embracing and deconstructed jackets and coats, maxi pants, tops and t–shirts with generous volumes and proportions.
lively–coloured sweaters fit in couture, sartorial garments. a vibrant chromatic rhythm inviting to party: lemon, mojito, mimosa, granadine, reflexion, popstar, marshmallow.
acid, fluo and plump hues, contrasting with pure and noble colours, such as nero, notte and cream.
the small geometric bead features a bold two-colour design with all the brilliance of glass. like a good luck charm found on the beach, to carry with you always.
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.
