What is The Attico?

The Attico is an Italian fashion label, founded in 2016 by designers and Instagram influencers Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio.

Both based in Milan, the two met through mutual friends and immediately hit it off. Despite their contrasting personalities and fashion senses (Tordini loves everything classic and timeless, while Ambrosio favors opulence and eclecticism), the two decided to join forces and create their own fashion brand. 

The Attico’s unique aesthetic stems from this very juxtaposition. The brand’s collections play with contrasts—contrasting colors, textures, cuts.

Over the years, The Attico has developed a cult following on social media, partly thanks to the founders’ popularity. The Attico clothing is known and coveted worldwide for its sensual, over-the-top aesthetic. Initially a line of boudoir-chic eveningwear, The Attico has expanded to include everything from footwear to swimwear.
