For their first The Attico pre-collection, Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini bring a nomadic ease into an ever evolving mindset. Shapes are fluid, caressing the figure and molding to the body, brought close to the silhouette the by strings, knots, straps. The woman, in fact, plays with the dress, manipulates it, inspired by that gipsy mindset. She ties a pair of mannish trousers to the calves, waist sculpted into the masculine blazer. She puts different fabrics together, layers tassels into an asymmetric shift, lets feathers bloom along the hem of the ribbed tank-dress. Nonchalantly spontaneous, she pairs a simple shirt with an opulent skirt, and piles earrings, necklaces, chokers. Denim, in voluminous shapes and earthy hues, is important for her. The woman favors a muted palette of desaturated pistachios, reds, peacock blues and tangerines, mixed with sandy neutrals, dark browns and gunmetal greys. Standing tall on tie-up pumps and satin sandals, she shoves everything she needs in a roomy bag – an outsized pouch, in fact – and off she goes.
