INFINITE VARIETY - THE ATTICO, FALL-WINTER 23
Presenting THE ATTICO, FALL-WINTER 23.
Each collection, for us, is a way to add facets to the personality of our woman. Free and oblivious of impositions, she enjoys multiplicity as the only way to deal with the daily act of being herself.
A sense of daring is her main trait: an innate affinity with glamor, but also a proclivity for the unexpected, the glitzy mixed with the harsh - sequins and concrete, so to speak.
Being, as designers, quite daring ourselves, this season we gave our woman the imaginary traits of an unforgettable Milanese marchesa: Luisa Casati.
Fearless and free, Casati was, we like to believe, an archetypal THE ATTICO character of her own time. We were taken by her eccentricity and abandon, and envisioned her now, living this very moment.
In Milano, the place where she was born and where she spent a long chunk of her life; the place where we live and work.
The collection, thereafter, is a mix of languid, 20s inflected sophistication and spiky modernism, of the extremely seductive and the laid-back.
At THE ATTICO the face-off of the femme fatale and the tomboy is a veritable identity trait, which this season we explored with renewed bluntness.
Long and short dresses swarm in appliquè, metallic shine, dense embroideries, revealing the body underneath through cuts, slashes, knots and transparencies.
The body is freed, movements are glorified by asymmetries, trains, openings. Sequins sparkle; ostrich feathers quiver on skimpy bra tops.
Knit pieces define a snug silhouette that opens up at the bottom or provide tufty texture. Animal spots bring up a wild touch.
Tailoring is masculine and generous, with a slouchiness that carries over in the bombers, roomy jeans and multi pocket cargo pants. The palette is nocturnal and black, with dashes of silver, royal blue, oily yellow.
Accessories highlight the counterpoint of elements: metallic and cut out boots, embroidered pumps, sandals with straps coiling around the legs.
This is THE ATTICO seen through the prism of infinite variety.
