Milan

The premiere stop for affordable designer goods is also home to an unexpectedly rich array of boutiques and elegant vintage shops.

tim camino

This homespun boutique has BROOKLYN scrawled on one wall, but there's nothing urban about its eponymous line. All the pieces we found, like the denim knickers ($49) and camisoles made with doilies ($150) had a distinct"Little House on the Prairie" vibe.

North Of City Center

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

a.o.c.

The abbreviation stands for African Oriental Craft, and for the past 20 years this off-the-beaten-path, dust-filled duo of stores, located across the street from one another, has been stocking huge volumes of jewelry, home decor, and clothing from points such as Fez, Jaipur, and Jakarta. The inventory is so exhaustive you'll want to allow yourself a good two hours for browsing. And consider the prices: we found a set of six Moroccan tea glasses for a jaw-dropping $15 and thousands of glass-bead African necklaces for under $10.

corso como

It's safe to say that this is the best-known store in Milan. The owner, Carla Sozzani, is the sister of the head of Italian Vogue, and its impressive space houses a cafe, boutique, art-and-fashion bookstore, and gallery. We admired the clothes by everyone from Balenciaga to Marc Jacobs, then snapped up an affordable canvas Corso Como tote bag created by Comme des Garcon designer Rei Kawakubo.
