a collaboration that seeks to enhance the virtue and magic of their light. like a graffiti a trace of light, seven words accent the window of the forte_forte boutique at via ponte vetero 1, in the heart of brera, capturing and surprising passing glances. "don't follow the light, be the light", is the installation that unveils a lighting concept created by pietro terzini by dimming the shop window in electric blue, causing the letters to pop out through the glow that filters in from inside the shop. an unusual interweaving of night and day, dark and light. the phrase is an invitation, in a society of sharing and social media, not to let oneself be entranced by the lives of others, but to live one's own life to the fullest and with light.the boutique presents itself concealed and encased almost inside a coffer. its interior is unveiled discretely, like a soul that might timidly shield itself, yet consciously and determinedly allows its precious innermost self to be revealed to the world outside.

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.
