Forte Forte

Oversized Drawstring Rugby Stripe Sweater in Recycled Cotton


gentle tenacity - a female take on a male style: a beautiful blend of rugby stripes and girlie glamour with a cord to cinch at the waist. crafted from recycled cotton, this top has a ribbed crossover neckline and loose sleeves with a soft silhouette that evokes the carefree spirit of the 80s.

100% Cotton. Made in Italy.



grown in the fashion business, the forte brothers hail from veneto, italy. giada and paolo have absorbed this ethos since childhood, in the family’s knitwear factories. 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.
