off in the distance lies a riff... guitar strings are caressed as crystal clear vibrations waft through the air and our bodies.
no amplifier: just an instrument and its performer, back to our roots;
essence, purity, back to the source of energy.
the chiaroscuro of intimate settings, tinkling cymbals, rhythms punctuated by dusty boots, a car and a chest full of dreams.
the elusive horizon between two oceans: sky and earth are reflected in one another, endless optical illusions, silvery reflections of mirages in the desert.
starry nights bedecked with dazzling celestial stars, diamond gemstones studding the sky.
but it is across the keys of a piano, alternating between purity and noir,
rustling with vibrant wisteria and agave leaves, that “unplugged” delivers its most vibrant notes…
lookbook primavera 2023
jacquard chenille and sequins, like snapshots of rolling waves and nocturnal galaxies; a splash of shimmering fringes like shooting stars; super–clean nappa leather and craquelé laminated suede,like exquisite metallic fringes; sun–baked, almost bleached textile surfaces;
snake jacquard, bleached cotton–linen denim, old–dyed cloth in mineral tones; crepon jacquard satins, unfinished elegance;
lurex plissé tulle in emerald, sapphire and black gold tones;
“loving guitar” georget te as delicate and poetic as plucking silver–plated strings; “wild horses” print on satin and voile, a zebra–striped cloak left to fade in the desert sun, mementos of a journey to paradise city.
and in the car boot, tucked away is the “magic trunk”... to open it is to find oneself on tour, a different outfit, unique pieces to take to the stage and begin... unplugged.
this version of the ballerina in gold-tone supple nappa channels romantic allure and a sparkly aesthetic. the high gathered vamp is reminiscent of footwear from yesteryear while the slave-style ankle straps exude sensual femininity. a sculptural heel with tonal covering.
forte_forte loves pietro terzini
let’s sparkle, it’s time to shine…
a simple, powerful message that cuts straight to the heart.
a sincere, bright declaration of love is how pietro terzini has chosen to renew his collaboration with forte_forte. our wandering poet celebrates the beauty of feelings, bringing out the spirit of everyday affections with this vibrant new manifesto.
the words play with the semantics of emotions, as if traced by an imaginary finger drawing on a window, connecting to the literal meaning of the forte_forte brand name. catching every glance unawares, the letters stand out through the boutique’s lighting, which filters through from inside. the intention is to convey the spontaneity, strength and energy of emotions, by living each sensation to the utmost without hesitation, allowing oneself to be completely swept away by the authenticity of sentiments.
arising from a conversation between giada forte and pietro terzini, the project brings together the boutiques of milan, rome, paris, london and madrid to form a single impassioned circle.
a kaleidoscope of emotions that radiates an image of a fresh freedom, moving with the wings of a butterfly and a dragonfly.
the capsule collection “forte_forte loves acqua di parma” is the sincere and authentic tale of a story full of emotions that acquire inspiration from the beauty of a dreamlike world made of refinement and poetry. each garment is designed from an almost impalpable, yet intense and exciting feeling: the sensation of a pure and spontaneous beauty that lives in the delicate and dreamy design of forte_forte loves acqua di parma. butterflies and dragonflies unfold their colorful wings during flight that has the scent of freedom and rebirth which is reflected in a kaleidoscope of freshly bloomed flowers. an iridescent atmosphere that vibrates with light and energy, a new found freedom.
the authenticity composed of many precious elements and handcrafted details reveals the natural beauty of the material, the color and purity of the forms, designed to welcome the body without constraints. a special wardrobe in which the "made in Italy" is translated into the quality of our garments, evoking the magic of spring and its revitalization emanating from the scents and colors in a bright and iridescent atmosphere that pulsates with emotions.
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.
