The Attico and Re/Done Launched a Sustainable Capsule Collection
Re/Done and The Attico have a new capsule collection that emphasizes the power of creative collaboration between the two distinct fashion brands. While the companies may seem quite different—Re/Done is known for its pre-loved denim while The Attico has been recognized for its slip dresses and kimono-inspired gowns—both entities share a passion for making the old new again. What’s resulted is a collection of products that celebrate the 1970s and 90s with a focus on unconventional details and hints of glamour.
How did the collaboration first come about? The Attico founders Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini were previously introduced to Re/Done founders Sean Barron and Jamie Mazur at an event in Paris. “We had an instant connection with Gilda and Giorgia,” Sean reflected in the brand’s press release. “The quick friendship unfolded organically. Both of our brands are inspired by vintage designs and we knew right away that we wanted to create something cool together.”
Later, when Gilda and Giorgia were visiting Los Angeles, they stopped by Re/Done’s office and the conversation continued from there. The two teams then went on a vintage shopping trip together around downtown Los Angeles (we wish we were invited!), discovering dresses from the 70s and 80s, which served as the spark for the new collection. Cutting into the garments and reshaping them into modern silhouettes, the collaborators made a point to let their creativity flow and just follow their instincts.
“We wanted to explore our passion for vintage from a different perspective,” expressed Giorgia and Gilda. In this way, working with Re/Done allowed the designers to take their creations from vintage inspired to vintage reimagined, adding a sense of specialness to each piece in the collection. Hoodies were cropped, bows and crystals were added to various items, and jeans were turned into miniskirts. Floral dresses were upcycled, vintage Levi’s jeans were reconstructed and encrusted with a Swarovski crystal tiger print, and cargo pants were cropped and tailored. Did we mention there’s also 1970’s inspired graphic t-shirts and ribbed tank tops?
Still, the duo behind the Attico made a point to preserve the feminine aesthetic their brand has become known for while also appealing to a “different woman” than the one they typically design for — the effortless and colorful LA girl. As most of the collection has been fashioned from repurposed vintage items, no two pieces are alike and limited quantities are available.
