Say hello to Fornarina, an Italian brand characterised by its daring designs and impeccable craftsmanship - as well as an ability to help its wearers unleash their inner fashion rebel.
A quick scroll through the Fornarina collection and the brand's aesthetic is clear - it likes to push boundaries with trend-led pieces that are influenced by street style from Europe's urban cities. If the of-the-moment shoe is the sandal, Fornarina makes sure its strappy designs are enhanced with their own signature twist: think playful details like floral embellishments and metallic accents. This label isn’t afraid to be bold and loves to create show-stopping shoes. Amp up the formality of a pleated skirt by slipping on a chunky-heeled pair in a glossy pastel finish and you’re styled for the night. For even dressier dress codes, opt for plush satin-finish heels decorated with beads to wear with a flowing maxi dress and a chiffon shawl.
While Fornarina produces an array of clothes and accessories, it’s the shoes that are taking our fancy (right now at least). Sliders embedded with beads meet suede calf-length boots and 90s-style block-heel sandals. Shimmering metallic finishes appear often in the label's range - and we all know a little razzle dazzle is a sure-fire way to make you stand out in style at those daytime garden parties. Slip on mom jeans, an oversized silky shirt and a leather jacket, then watch how Fornarina's footwear transforms your look from simple to smart casual with a touch of effortless elegance. Switch up the outfit for evening with skinny jeans, a tucked-in camisole and a bright pink cocktail (mmm, cosmos).
