If you like bold, experimental style and all things fashion, Gilda Ambrosio – the Italian influencer and co-founder of The Attico – should be your go-to on Instagram. 

Ambrosio started The Attico with fellow designer and influencer Giorgia Tordini a mere four years ago and what started as a small collection of silk wrap dresses, evolved into a maximalist, joyful world filled with vintage references, electric colors, feather dresses, animal print tops – and plenty of hits in the shoe department. 

What Ambrosio does on her Instagram account is bring a personal perspective to the brand’s journey, share her inspirations – including plenty of Ibiza sunsets, astrology readings and old-school photos of Cher – and show you how she pairs The Attico with other favorite labels, from Loewe to Valentino and Amina Muaddi. 

There’s plenty of great shoes to take in too: Think close-ups of the latest colors of the popular Attico ankle-tie pumps shot straight from Ambrosio’s desk, to Versace ‘Medusa’ stiletto sandals worn with basketball socks, dad sandals for a dose of at-home inspiration and plenty of chunky sneakers, like the Jumpman hi-tops Ambrosio and Tordini recently collaborated with Nike on. 

It’s an unapologetic approach to style where anything goes and rules are there to be broken. A great reminder to keep having fun with fashion – and pair your stilettos with socks if you feel like it.
