Gorgeous Spring 2018 Attico Bellisima Collection Look 5 Silk Chiffon Tropical Sunset Coloured Dress

The Attico brand was founded by street-style stars Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini and the line has a vintage vibe to it that I love. This dress is from the Spring 2018 collection entitled 'Bellissima'. Co-founder Giorgia Tordini  said that it was loosely inspired by Luchino Visconti’s filmic feminine vision and that the collection was supposed to be 'romantic and dramatic.' As with most of their collections, especially the early ones, it is very vintage inspired and you can see the 1940s inspiration with this dress. This may have been the prettiest one of the collection and it is the twin of the runway presentation dress. It is also new with tags.

This dress is just phenomenally pretty. It is made out of a light semi-sheer silk chiffon that has a touch of texture to it. All of the seam edges are raw. This leaves a deliberate fraying that runs along all of the seams that act as detailing on the upper part of the dress. It dips into a deep V at the front and the sleeves are capped and poufed. The dress is cut to skim over you and has curved seams and ruched gatherings reminiscent of the way that pieces where made in the 1930s and 1940s. Under that the skirt flares out and there's quite a bit of fabric in it that will billow out around you when you move. A panel runs down the center of the skirt and it is purposefully set so it's a little bit longer and has a very vintage feel to it. The dress closes down the side with a series of hidden set buttons. Another nod to the 1930s and 40s in feel. What is definitely not something from an earlier time period is the color. It has been dyed in a dramatic tropical sunset feel. It begins with a yellow at the top and then softens to coral tones in the middle and then slowly changes to pinks. The very bottom of the skirt is a bright in vivid pink and it is stunningly gorgeous. It is meant to be semi transparent and you can either go with something nude underneath to be full on daring or add a slip in almost any colour to give it different looks. The dress has all its original tags attached and was never worn. Excellent condition
