Italian designers Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, formerly street style stars, have put their money where . . . (wait for it) . . . their clothes are. While they used to be content simply to hit the streets during Fashion Month to stun the masses around the globe with their incredibly fabulous and well put together ensembles, balancing chic and casual effortlessly, and to end up on the pages of every sartorial review, both web and print, from here to China (literally), in October 2016, they launched their own brand, Attico. Attico, Italian for penthouse, aims to bring a casual confidence to a high degree of opulence to create for the wearer an appearance of effortlessness. Because, that's what we are all striving for in our appearance, after all, right? To be seen as cool without actually having to work hard at it. To know who we are and to flaunt it.
The recent Spring 2017 season presented in Milan had me at hello. From the pink and red color combinations, to the red dragon skirt and the metallic citron '70s throw-back sandals, to the glimmery wisteria-colored sequin peignoir with red satin heels, I am crazy for it all. Although, I do ask myself whether I am crazier for the clothes or the interiors in which they are presented. I am a fool for Collection Braquenié's Le Grand Corail and all of the other prints (if you can identify them, please let me know!!). For me, it's the perfect marriage: interiors and fashion.
