Milan is one of the world’s fashion capitals with millions of independent boutiques and international stores which you will find whenever you go. Fashion streets have almost been a little paradise for each of us. Do you remember these magical feelings when you put on a new dress in a beautiful shop, when you buy a new pair of shoes and already planning where you are going to go and what you are going to wear along with these new beauties? You definitely know what I am talking about, right? Today we go shopping in Milan!
There are people who prefer to see first Via Montenapoleone, and only after go and visit beautiful Duomo square. I guess I am one of that group. Via Montenapoleone is a street which takes first place for luxury shopping in the city. It is home to many big designer brands, from Gucci to Valentino. As well offering the latest ready-to-wear trends and designer clothes. Bottega Veneta, Salvatore Ferragamo and Fendi all on the same street, Via Montenapoleone is an irresistible place to indulge.
Have you been looking for something exclusive? Gorgeous shops in a beautiful location? “Taxi please; we are going to Corso Venezia”! One of Milan’s most exclusive and elegant avenues. Alongside beautiful palaces, gardens and parks, the street is also home to Italian fashion heavyweights and international brands. With menswear brands such as Henry Cotton’s, Brooksfield, Burberry and Stone Island, the street is a must-visit for any gentleman wishing to invest in practical yet stylish clothing.
Corso di Porta Ticinese
Corso di Porta Ticinese has been likened to Portobello Road in London and is characterized by unique clothing, record and food stores. An alternative to the designer labels of the Via Montenapoleone, it specializes in offbeat fashion brands and is a great destination for denim – Levis, Diesel and Carhartt.
Corso Vittorio Emanuele II
Must- visit for every tourist in Milan! Located near to the Piazza del Duomo city square at the heart of the city. Corso Vittorio Emanuele II offers many high-street and mid-range brands, making it one of the best places in Milan to shop for young fashion and international labels. Zara, H&M, Mango and Bershka all have stores here. The street is also home to La Rinascente, one of the city’s biggest shopping malls. With eight floors featuring everything from luxury womenswear to fine perfume and accessories.
Corso Buenos Aires
Did you know that Corso Buenos Aires is the longest shopping street in Europe and is comparable to London’s Oxford Street or Paris’s avenue des Champs-Élysées? 1km long street offers over 350 international ready-to-wear brands. There you will find such shops as Mango, Zara, Benetton, H&M, Swatch, Desigual, United Colors of Benetton and other less known brands.
