“Shoes have the power to either elevate a look to perfection, or to make a statement,” explain Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, the designers of the Milan-based brand Attico. The brand’s feminine collection of slides, stilettos and sandals, which are handcrafted in Italy, underscore this assertion. Entwining charming artisanal details and lavish fabrics with ornate embroideries and lush colors, they communicate a casual confidence and modern opulence that harkens back to a time when “decadence ruled.”
Why did you select the name Attico?
The Attico, or penthouse, is the place where our ideal female muse would live. We envision this space to be richly decorated with unique furniture and decadent details.
