Harmony and balance, needles of an intimate soul’s scale, the soul of the forte_forte Pre-Fall 2023 collection, inspired by classical beauty, a timeless muse awakens from ancient times.
Gentle expanses of golden grains under infinite night skies and electric blue lightning; reflections of ancient bronze and silver metals; lightness of pure ivories of epic places, punctuated by sophisticated fluorescent magenta; chocolate, earth and malachite gems such as carnelian and cameos of ancient roman jewels; purple, nude and skin as memories of sacred rituals. Geometry as order of creation: fabrics seek visual and tactile emotions, the “clio” and “endless sky” jacquards find their soul again; prints and lace punctuate hypnotic dances with damier motifs; profiles of muses are portrayed among delicate gardens in silk satin dresses and hand–embroidered wool twill: they become new pop icons on technical taffetas.
The rediscovered linear style translates into cady and marocain fabrics with minimal declinations, minute votive mirrors and silky feathers, almost abstract elements, decorate the surfaces of soft bouclé and poplin graphics like letters of a rediscovered alphabet. Turtlenecks and shiny jersey leggings in electric or nude tones become chosen companions of total looks in glitter pleats and see– through lace. The total nude is the new black.
Bijoux, minimal and essential, are stripped of the supporting structures to become only crystal or only pearl. The iconic ankle boots and fussbett in suede, napa leather or shearling are joined by new thigh-high boots and mules in silky satin and crystals, as well as very elegant velvet sandals.
