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.

Fornarina: inspired by the European woman

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.

Find fun favourites in Fornarina's collection

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).
