    Nannini: Value for your money

    by nomadig Written May 27, 2007

    Nannini is one of the mid-level Italian fashion brands that has been expanding steadily all over the world. We visited their Milan shop on Corso Buenos Aires to spend some time and money for fashion accessories.

    The store is for ladies only, and it focuses on bags and shoes. The store is not the very big, but fortunately there were several items worth purchasing with reasonable prices -- you don't pay for the name, but for the design and the quality of the items.

    The service was very helpful, despite having a smallish English vocabulary. Fortunately, the ladies had enough persistence and willpower to carry us through the buying process using both English, Italy and hands.

    Du Pareil Au Même: Fully stocked children shop

    by nomadig Written Jun 2, 2007

    There are surprisingly few children stores in Milan, compared to the overall number of clothing stores in the city. Your best bet is to walk on Corso Buenos Aires, as there are several shops for babies and children.

    Du Pareil Au Même is one of the biggest, the selection catering for all aspects of having small children. The prices are quite okay, too, but the service is non-existent. We browsed through the shop for quarter of an hour, but got no service what-so-ever. Unbelievable!

    Muji: Simplicity from Japan

    by nomadig Written Jun 3, 2007

    I know that Muji is expanding, but I was a bit surprised to see their shop in Milan -- the design is so strong in the northern Italy and people seem to be so loyal to the local traditions. Nevertheless, the shop was enjoying a good amount of customers already on early Saturday morning.

    Brief introduction to Muji for the non-initiated: Muji is a Japanese design brand that is based on simplicity and no-labels approach. They sell quality stuff, everything from office supplies to clothes, furniture and tableware -- of course, depending on the size of the shop. Nowadays they seem to be found in every big market.

    Muji's competitive advantage is not pricing, but the form follows function design that pleases the eye.

    Brums: Colourful clothing for children

    by nomadig Written Jun 3, 2007

    Brums is a midsized children clothing store on busy Corso Buenos Aires. The clothes are very colourful and attend to the details. The sizes range from babies to teens (0-16 years) and both girls and boys have a good selection of clothes.

    The service is very friendly and there were enough clerks to handle all customers -- this might be because of low number of customers or higher amount of clerks. The prices are in the midrange, so don't expect finding any bargains here.

    Fashion shops: From more expensive....

    by Polly74 Written Mar 18, 2005

    Let’s start from the most famous of all the streets of fashion: Via Montenapoleone. This is where you can find, amongst others, the atelier-showrooms of: Gucci, Versace, Salvatore Ferragamo, Fratelli Rossetti, Etro, Loro Piana, Luis Vuitton, Prada, Valentino, Cartier and Tanino Crisci.
    In Via Sant'Andrea, a street that crosses Via Montenapoleone you can find: Chanel, Fendi, Armani, Moschino, Kenzo, Cesare Paciotti, Hermés, Prada and Trussardi.
    Via Sant'Andrea crosses the famous Via della Spiga, where you can enjoy the shop windows at: D&G, Krizia, Sergio Rossi, Gianfranco Ferré, Bottega Veneta, Tod's, Genny, Prada, Bulgari and Chopard.
    The equally elegant Via Manzoni is home to Spazio Armani at no. 31. This is the Giorgio Armani multi-concept store where you can admire the Emporio Armani showrooms, Armani casa, and Armani fiori. You can also sip an aperitif at the Emporio Armani Cafè, or spend an evening at the restaurant Nobu, with a dinner by the best Japanese chef to emerge in the last 10 years: Nobuyuki Matsuhisa who opened this chain of restaurants together with Robert de Niro.

    Linate Airport: Linate Airport - not many shops

    by UKDaisy Written Feb 24, 2006

    Linate airport doesn't have many shops, so don't rely on here as your last-minute shop stop for your Gucci's and Prada's. There is a duty-free shop with a few designer concessions, but the choice isn't great. I'd recommend that you do as much shopping in Milan as possible.

    Emporio Armani: Affordable Luxury

    by SabrinaSummerville Updated Apr 19, 2006

    I have always associated Armani with clothes and perfumes, but a visit to Milan proved me wrong in that regard.

    I read about the Emporio Armani store in the guide books and visited it really to have lunch in the restaurant there, which has quite a trendy reputation.

    I sepnt hours browsing the four floors of this establishment and was absolutely astonished to discover that Armani is about a lot more than clothes!

    Apart altogether from the cost of the designer labels, my figure isn't quite right for Armani sizes (as in, I'm not a size two!) so I was delighted to find that I could still shop till I was fit to drop and indulge in Armani foods (mostly jams and sweets), sunglasses, perfumes, bed linen, furniture and a host of other items.

    If you really really want to pamper yourself (or get someone to do it for you) why not indulge in a bottle of the Armani Prive scent. Four scents in this collection were introduced shortly before Christmas 2005 and I was lucky enough to possess a bottle of the scent that comes in the dark brown bottle. It's the one that Giorgio himself wears - the scents are designed to suit either males or females.

    Go on, spoil yourself:-)

    What to buy: Anything and everything that you can afford - but they have provided something for every taste and pocket. You can leave Milan with a genuine Armani bag hosting a genuine Armani purvchase - even if it IS just sweets:-)

    What to pay: As much or as little as you desire.

    Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

    by Bregman Written May 24, 2005

    The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is a fancy shopping mall right next to the cathedral. It is full with beautiful shops, so even if you don't plan on buying anything you should go in for a look.
