Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini Would Like Us to Dress Up In Attico


Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini  have been working secretly to launch Attico, which debuted during Milan’s Fashion Week. In keeping with the label’s name, which means 'penthouse' in Italian, the seasonless collection has a relaxed, loungy, and a je ne sais quoi feel.


The designers describe their new brand as 'nostalgic, eclectic and sexy'. Finding inspiration from 1940's silhouettes and 1920's chinoiserie, this line merges old school glamour with retro street style, Gilda explains to NSS magazine "I love working on fits and silhouettes, while Giorgia prefers curating the creative direction and represents the most feminine part. Working together has been very important because I would have exaggerated while Giorgia would have been too controlled. Our best friends who have already seen the collection can say exactly where's Gilda and where’s Giorgia, but for us it's really complicated now, since we really trust each other's vision and it's the best of both worlds!" 

Rebirthing the traditional kimono through a feminine serene silhouette and playing with different hues of velvet and silk, the initial idea of the collection was to bring robes to the street, making them cool again. Wanting to reinvent ornate embroiders from interior design and vintage furniture pieces, the brand pays close attention to it's artisanal detail with each piece being an embodiment for a different women from a different city with modern muses and nostalgic cigarette taste. Using Instagram as their visual mood board, Attico quickly and undoubtedly became the new 'it' label in a few days! With the hashtag #JoinUsUpstairs, who wouldn't be intrigued?
