Can anyone inform me if the shops are open on Sundays in San Babila district and Buenos Aires?
Also if someone who lives in Milan help me to find a store for which I cannot remember the name, It was kind of boutique which was located in the shopping arcade near to the San Babila metro station.
The owners are two women,the shop had a unique styles and shoes not brands but its own styles.
I'll appreciate If someone can help me.
I wanted to ask the same thing? If there is someone interested to write about fashion designers outlets in Milan, just two two of them, but the best ones?
Is there a shop called Paleari in Milan, if is, where and what it looks like....Thanks very much, in advance. I am about to be in Milan in the end of January....
I live in Florence now, but last week I was in Milan for break. If anyone's looking for vintage/consignment shops, here's a list I comprised
Most of these shops are open at least Tues-Fri after 3pm. You can Google each of these places for more info.
Cavalli E Nastri - Via Brera 2 (Montenapoleone metro stop): high end, amazingly edited vintage
Dear the Duomo: Humana Vintage - via Cappellari: only charity shop in Milan, I've heard. Prices pretty good, everything in the double digits. Napoleone - via Arcimboldi: similar to Humana Vintage Delirium di Jacassi Franco - tucked away in a courtyard - via Giuseppe Sacchi 3: incredible high end selection
Near the Porta Genova stop: Elizabeth the First - Naviglio Grande 44: like Cavalli e Nastri except smaller and homelier
On Corso di Porta Ticinese: Backstage Vintage: punk/costume vibe Lo Specchio di Alice: closed when I went there, but looks promising and affordable
Aaand the one consignment shop. Lots of huge discounts on designer labels, I got a Junya Watanabe for CDG top and Vivienne Westwood clutch for 30€ each! Mercantino Michaela - via Zambonate 93
I'm considering going to Milan for a day sometime in January. I assume the sales will start on January 10th this year?
Anyway, if I'm going I'll go there by train, so I'd like to know what shops to check out that are close to the train station (Milano Centrale). I want to check out Antonioli in Via P. Paoli. Is there anything else around that area that is worth checking out? And I know Milan has lots of designer outlets, are they all located in seperate stores or is there anything like an outlet mall?
What about contemporary designers like Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone, etc? From using TheLabelFinder.com I get the impression Milan is really only good for classic high fashion designers
I'm really unsure if it's worth going to Milan or if I should just wait until I get to go to Paris in Spring to do all the shopping.
Thank you so much, pitumpah!
Frip sounds interesting, I hadn't heard about that store before. Milan does indeed not sound too exciting when you compare it to other European cities, but I think I can't resist going because tickets to there are so cheap atm But maybe I'll wait until Milan FW is on so I can also stalk some models, hehe.
I am going to Milan next week and I am too stressed.I want to buy designer pieces but it wont be sales so I want to check out outlets, flea markets, vintage shops- secondhand shops.But where to go in short time? Please help! I really need a good local or experienced Milan shopper suggestions.Thanks!
