    Armani: Fashion for all

    by mauro_pd Updated Jan 3, 2005

    I wonder if anybody out there does not know this guy (I mean armani of course); anyhow please be informed a nice building fully dedicated to his activities is placed in via Manzoni, downtown Milan.
    You find furnitures, sweets, clothes, parfums, books, flowers and a nice cafe´.

    What to buy: Sweets and chocolate are interesting, the rest can be also purchased somewhere else.

    N/A: More to Milan than fashion and fast cars?

    by Mazza1 Updated Jan 14, 2005

    The "Fashion Quadrilateral" which is delimited by Via Montenapoleane, Via Manzoni, Via Sant'Andrea and Via Della Spiga is lined with all manner of fashion boutiques and designer clothes stores. No respite was to be had from shopping and consumerist spese even on a Sunday (in this most Sabbath-observing of Catholic countries no less!). The Milanese and wannabe fashionistas packed out the main shopping drags and we joined the fray in a frenzy of frantic shoe shopping in the January sales. In the end we left empty-handed because of my aversion to a particular kind of pixie-like pointy, high heel shoes that adorn most of the shop fronts and heel the dainty feet of fashion-conscious young women.
    I exasperate at the number of VTs posting msgs on this website warning of how hiked up the prices are in Galleria and around the centre. Of course it is expensive it's MILAN!!! Mind you, 3 Euros for un caffe in the Prada store is not too bad going considering the exclusiveness of the location location location.

    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.

    Any bar, pastry or supermarket: Panettone!

    by baronedivandastad Written Apr 28, 2004

    Try the one from Pasticceria Bastianello. Absolutely delicious.

    What to buy: Panettone is the typical Milan Christmas cake. Life won't be the same after trying it. It's made of raisins, candy fruit and may be garnished with chocolate or other amenities. Real Milanese eat the traditional version.

    What to pay: From 6 to 15 euros depending on where and what you buy. If you buy it in January or February prices go down steeply. It's impossible to find it from March to November.

    Now don't you like it already?

    Backstreet Boutiques

    by Helen196 Written Sep 16, 2004

    After a hard nights partying how else is a girl meant to recover? A little shopping therapy goes a long way!

    Luckily for our bank balances all the designer shops were closed on a Sunday so we just window shopped at Tiffany's, Yves Saint Laurent, D&G, Vivien Westwood etc etc!

    These shops are all tucked away down little avenues away from the main touristy areas, and are well worth a look even if it is just to lust longingly at those €400 Jimmy Choo shoes!!

    The shops in the main areas around the Duomo were open but these were shops like H&M and Zara which were more expensive than back in England so we didn't bother visiting them

    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.
