Italian designers Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, are combining their vastly different aesthetics to push the boundaries of specialty couture, launching their own line, Attico, in February, 2016.
Attico, the Italian word for penthouse, is a collection of standout pieces inspired by the classic peignoir but designed to be flaunted. Dripping with artisanal detail, each piece embodies a woman from a different city, modern muses with nostalgic cigarette taste.
A throwback to a time when decadence ruled and grunge lay dormant in the shadows. Pulling its rich color patterns, lavish materials and ornate embroideries from interior design and vintage furniture pieces, Attico is reinventing the very idea of opulence, and with it, the idea of the robe.Each piece carries with it an attitude – the casual confidence of a woman who knows who she is and what she wants. Plunging necklines, side slits up to the waist, yet effortless.
Each piece will teach, too: how to make thrown together appear dressed up, dressed up feel everyday, and how to make every entrance feel like the entrance. Attico throws tradition on its head, making an antiquated concept contemporary, making chaste sultry, and seduction natural.
