Where to shop?
A trip to Milan is not complete without a trip to the Golden Square, which is where you can find the most exclusive Italian brands… but don’t forget to visit the Ticinese district: the city’s fashion and design quarter.
16, Corso di Porta Ticinese
This boutique can be found in the city centre, in front of the ‘Colonne di San Lorenzo’. Founded in 1994, the store was the first of its kind to introduce brands such as Acné, Ann-Sofie Back, Bless, Marios, Henrik Vibskov which were not well-known at the time… The selection today is still as perfect!
- WOK – Store
5a, Via Col di Lana
WOK is becoming increasingly renowned for its trendy focus, and not just in fashion; the store is also getting credit for its artistic and creative flair. It is a location that designers from all sectors can come together to develop (and sell) their creations. The young owners Federica Zambon and Simona Citarella founded this boutique not only to present the fresh and innovative ideas of designers and artists that they know but also with the objective of promoting art and to bring back the avant-garde influences of New York, Tokyo and London. Like the store’s Chinese inspired name ‘wok’ you will find a mix of styles and tastes- Wok is a place where you can find everything: designer pieces, decorative objects, books and clothes of course!
14, Corso di Porta Ticinese
Cutting edge fashion: this store sells very smart essentials, with little original and different touches that we love! Le Full really knows their customers: women who are looking for simple and modern shapes which will make them look stylish.
6, Corso Genova
Fashion buyer Rosy Biffi makes our job a lot easier! She spends her time travelling to the world’s fashion capitals looking for the newest talent and trends! Browsing through the rails in her boutique is like a trip around the world itself with a stop off for all the best brands: Acné, Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, Marni…
- Mauro Leone
60, Corso di Porta Ticinese
Mauro Leone stocks a fantastic array of charming women’s shoes! Fashionistas flock to the store in search of multi-coloured flats and retro inspired Mary Janes. All of the store’s shoes are made in Italy and are of impeccable quality.
- Le Vintage DELÍRIUM de Franco Jacassi
3, Via Sacchi
I love this store! A secret lair full of clothes, bags and shoes… a paradise for lovers of vintage fashion. Franco Jacassi, the store’s owner, decided to leave his work in art galleries to become a fashion consultant. In his store you can find items from 1910 up until the 1990s… from Poiret, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent just to name a few… Not surprising that Rachel Zoe and Tom Ford are fans… A must see!
- Cavalli & Nastri
2, Via Brera
Milan’s trendiest vintage store has a section entirely dedicated to menswear as well as sections for women’s fashions and home interiors… You can find the best of the 50s to 70s at reasonable prices.
- Lipstick Vintage
79, Corso Garibaldi
Clothes and accessories unite blissfully in this store. Imagine Chanel, Ferragamo and Pucci and their amazing creations from the 18th and 19th centuries- breathtaking!
