As the world’s oldest fashion capital, Milan has lost none of the glamour and elegance that once defined it.
Italians love their fashion and nowhere more so than Milan where designer boutiques and luxury brand outlets are found on beautiful neoclassical streets
There is really only one district in Milan in which to shop – known as the ‘Golden Triangle’ for its concentration of famous Italian names, it is made up of Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga, Via del Gesù and Via Sant’Andrea.
Linking this area to the Piazza del Duomo is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Italy’s oldest and most elegant shopping mall. On these streets you will find most of Italy’s biggest and oldest brands.
10 Corse Como is quite unique, housed within the courtyard of a traditional Milanese palazzo; it contains a design and fashion store, a bookshop, gallery and a restaurant and café where you can rest from shopping in the courtyard garden.
