It’s not a shopping trip in Milan without a trip to 10 Corso Como. The flagship store was founded by Carla Sozzani in 1990, and despite its chic-ness, it’s not just about clothes. Corso Como has actually been described as the first ever concept shop, as it was the first to put everything at once all show, impeccably curated. It’s home to a boutique, a book store, art, a café and an entire gallery too. Worth it just for the venue, which is beautiful.
Whatever you’re headed to Milan for, there’s a high likelihood that shopping features at least near to the top of your list of things to do. This Italian city is known for its top-notch fashion scene, uber-cool shops and envious street style, and unsurprisingly, there’s many, many stores to choose from. Milan is known for being home to high-end luxury labels (hello, Versace and Armani), plus you're likely to find some designer shops cheaper there due to VAT refunds and transport costs.
So whether you’re looking to stroll through a huge department store for hours, try your hand at sourcing a designer bargain in a vintage shop or spend your days dipping in and out of tiny, trendy boutiques, there’s a shop for you in Milan. But with so much choice, you’re going to want to make at least a bit of a plan. Well, that’s where we come in. Here’s our picks of the best shops in Milan to visit on your next trip.
