Meet Attico, The Luxe Line Started by Italy’s Street-Style Stars

Attico is the latest luxury fashion line to emerge from Italian street-style stars and designers, Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio.

Inspired by 1920s chinoiserie, antique kimonos and 1940 silhouettes, the line boasts a slew of over-the-top pieces that look and feel as if you had spent hours hunting at a thrift store. The appeal of Attico—which is Italian for penthouse—is largely due to the founders Tordini and Ambrosio, who are keenly aware of the power street-style holds, as evident in the trails of photographers who routinely snap them during each fashion week. While the designer-duo possesses obvious similarities, the two couldn’t be more different when it comes to how they dress. Tordini, who is the oldest of the two, grounds her personal style with minimal, tailored pieces and Ambrosio tends to embrace more experimental and unpredictable ways of dressing.

The line, which was dreamt up in the backseat of a New York taxi, had a unified theme—despite their varying sense of style—to subvert the traditional dress codes for the modern millennial. “We are trying to suggest a new category of eveningwear, a new code to wear things in an easier way. With Attico, we encourage our clients to take the pieces out of context and not just look at them as something to wear for a special occasion, “ Tordini explains. “Attico is for everyday. Wear it on top of your jeans, with a t-shirt and flats and you are ready to go. We believe in versatility and this was the idea around Attico from day one.”

Since it’s launch, Attico has continued to grow and expand, as the designers have carved out a myriad of luxe robes, eclectic summer dresses, denim staples and plush accessories for their thoroughly modern and fashion-enthused clientele. At the end of the day, the luxury line is steadinly changing the way style we perceive style and fashion with a glamorous twist.

Celebrity fans of Attico include Emily Ratajkowski, Ginnifer Goodwin and Kylie Jenner.

Ginnifer Goodwin In Attico – ‘Constellation’ LA Premiere

Ginnifer Goodwin showcased her love of prints with a head-turning appearance at the ‘Constellation’ premiere in LA on Thursday (June 15).

Some may feel that this Attico Fall 2017 patchwork dress is too busy, but I love the celebratory feel of this look which resonates throughout the whole collection.

The purposeful clashing of stripes and prints, colours and styles, feels liberated and joyful. With its puff shoulders and wrap front, there was a retro feel to this look which brought a smile to my face.

Typical minimal styling with Nicholas Kirkwood sandals providing the finishing touch.

All in all, it’s a fun and vibrant look, but I have a feeling this won’t be shared.

What do you make of it?

Emily Ratajkowski In Attico – Cannes Film Festival Sighting

Prior to her uninspiring look at the Cannes Film Festival premiere for ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’, Emily Ratajkowski was spotted soaking up the sun at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Wednesday (May 17).

If your first thought was, “this is the most fabric I’ve ever seen worn by Emily”, you’re not alone.

I found this Attico Spring 2017 patchwork floral dress as refreshing as a dip in that deep blue sea behind her. I’m glad to see she can step out of her comfort-zone.

Her peasant-chic look was styled with a Carolina Santo Domingo ‘Corallina’ raffia tote that was made to be carried alongside a pretty, summery frock, and blue mules.
