A Piece of Milan

It's always exciting to take a "virtual peek" inside some of Milan's most fashionable boutiques!

WOK- A concept store opened in 2007, which has been recently renovated, and is the brainchild of Federica Zambon and Simona Citarella. It is characterized by a wide and varied selection of clothes and accessories by mostly foreign up-and-coming designers as well as some selected pieces by well-established names, such as Martin Margiela, Comme des Garçons and Vivienne Westwood.

A  French-inspired atmosphere fills the sophisticated Mariza Tassy boutique in via Molino delle armi 45, a multi-label store owned by Lella and Paola Rigante. It offers various brands, some of which are exclusive to the boutique: Isabel Marant, Forte Forte, shoes by L'Autre Chose, Les Prairies de Paris, Fiorentini+Baker and Mes Demoiselles while the jewellery cabinet hosts creations by Carla Perretti and 5 ottobre.

SUPER-A sophisticated multi-label store characterized by cutting-edge fittings and equipment.
Fitted with dream-like evening gowns, elegant fur shawls, shoes and accessories for a truly special evening, the window displays never fail to grab the attention.
However, this boutique does not offer only eveningwear but also blazers, jeans, tees and daywear; by the way, the gold button blazer by Ferragamo is to die for!

Vintage shop par excellence: Cavalli e nastri is Claudia Jesi’s colourful and refined boutique, the pioneer of vintage fashion in Milan.
Inside you will find a carefully selected range of clothes from the 30’s to the 80’s, elegant unique pieces, gowns, designer handbags, jewellery, fur coats and headscarves from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Beyond Brera, two other stores in via Gian Giacomo Mora are worth a visit: one dedicated to womenswear, the other to menswear and home fittings.

  A unique and unusual store – starting from the name – like L’Oro dei Farlocchi. It is owned by Maurizio Epifani, an experienced and refined antiquarian with excellent taste who has filled his gorgeous space in via Maddonnina with rare pieces, ornaments, corals, pieces of furniture, jewellery, vases and much more.

Wait and see by Uberta Zambeletti, a designer, consultant, art director and stylist who has poured here expertise and love for fashion, travelling and different cultures in this small and cosy concept store developed with a very personal and witty touch.
Among the most unusual and quirky pieces are a bright yellow coat and the mini shoulder bags in coloured suede, not to mention the counter which is a rotating wheel with different sections displaying must-have jewellery and bijoux.
