Re/Done co-founder Sean Barron and Attico co-founders Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini's initial meeting was a classic fashion story. "I met Giorgia and Gilda at a dinner in Paris. I felt they were super cool," Barron tells BAZAAR.com. And like many good fashion dinners before it, a great collaboration was born from it. "In passing we said it would be fun to do something together, not really thinking it through. But a month later they dropped by our studio in LA and we started the project."
Attico is a uniquely Italian brand, with two street style stars at the helm who have two very different approaches to dressing. One leans a little more posh and minimal, while the other is a little bit sportier and sexier—but together, the brand hits just the right amount flashy; a little '80s, with some florals, some bold colors, and a little glitz. Putting those ideas onto Re/Done's beloved reworked vintage model sounds like a dream project. "We share a passion for taking the old and making it new again, so the partnership came out very naturally," Ambrosio explains.

The story the women wanted to tell through this partnership was "the ability see the beauty in old found dresses and upcycle them; finding something old and making it new." It's a modern concept with sustainability at its core.
"We spoke about what inspired each of us and we were aligned on vintage and sustainable fashion. And we brought all of these to the collaboration," Barron says, "We wanted to explore fashion and sustainability using vintage and upcycling while exploring slightly different price points for each of us."
Tordini echoes a similar sentiment. "The most interesting aspect of this collaboration is the possibility to reconsider and re-manage your general idea and approach towards vintage," she says.
The results are a mix of re-worked vintage, bold-shouldered floral mini dresses, Swarovski crystal embossed sweatshirts, high-waisted paper bag denim, and cargo pants. None of it is about basics. These are pieces to elevate a wardrobe and give a girl something fun to put on. "The general idea is proposing a metropolitan look to wear during daytime," Tordini explains. "The overall feeling is casual, but the possibilities to style the collection are potentially infinite. The most important thing is having fun in doing it."
And it's almost sold out, so if you want in on the fun, it's now or never.
