Be Warned: 2017's Surprise Sellout Accessory Will Elicit Dad Jokes
Street style stars Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini's fashion label Attico only launched a year ago, but it is already one of the most talked-about names in fashion. The secret to Attico's overnight success is that the founders instinctively know what will create a buzz, as they spend at least two months a year being flanked by a flock of street style photographers, their personal style choices filling up outfit galleries across the land.
These two aren't afraid of going out on a fashion limb, and one of their key designs for 2017 is particularly polarising: Black leather cuffs with buckles that are to be worn on both ankles might sound like a trend most would steer clear of (looks a little like an electronic ankle tag or ankle support, no?), yet the £165 anklet almost instantly sold out on both Net-a-Porter and MyTheresa earlier this year. And now they are back again in pink, black, purple and a deep crimson. Gilda and Giorgia have been wearing theirs for the past year with backless mules and stilettos, either on just one ankle or both.
