Milan Shopping Guide

North of City Center

Lucky's favorite stores in Milan's North of City Center neighborhood!

Patrizia Pepe

Italians love this Florence-based designer for her ability to produce high-quality, trend-nailing garments-at fair prices. We found great-fitting wide-leg trousers for $120, terrific band-leather-style denim jackets for about $150, and crisp blouses starting at $65.

fashion factory

A long trek from the center of town, this outlet shop has a constantly changing stock (including a ton of Helmut Lang, and Miu Miu shoes for $50, on our visit) that will make up for the hassle of getting there.

fix town factory stores

Take a 45-minute train ride up to Switzerland to shop at this mind-blowing outlet mall complete with Gucci, Prada, Missoni, Helmut Lang, Hanro, Versace, and Dolce & Gabbana. The prices are right, too: All the shoes in the Gucci outlet, for example, were $35 when we visited.

Il Salvagente

Tons of tightly packed racks offer drastically discounted clothing from big-name European designers like Chloe (we spied a terry-cloth top for $50) and Balenciaga (a silk chiffon gypsy blouse was temptingly priced at $200). The whole Il Salvangente shopping experience feels like a sample sale-but without all of those maddening crowds.
