Having permeated fashion the past few years, the pajama trend seems to finally be getting a rest—which is not to say that we’ve tired of the just-rolled-out-of-bed look. Now it’s all about the robe, as evidenced most notably by new brand Attico. The Milanese line by street-style icons Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio offers lavish dressing gowns meant to be worn—with casual confidence—beyond the boudoir. Here, the duo shares the secrets to their enviable wardrobes.
