2011 Winter Sales in Milan
It’s that time of year again for shopping fanatics and sales freaks in the capital of chic Milan, as the 2011 Winter Sales will be officially starting on Thursday the 6th of January and running for an entire delicious week of shopping in the city and Lombardia.
This design capital and reference point for new trends is a must-see and a must-stop for both fashionistas and jet-setters alike. If haute couture ready-to-wear clothing from the likes of Prada and Gucci don’t fit your budget then there are plenty of shops that will be more within your price range, such as upscale Italian style that delivers MaxMara, and which can be found at outlet stores located outside the city centre. However, shopping for bargains in Milan is a workout… so be quick and watch out for scams (tricky price inflation), especially counterfeit goods.
Milan and Lombardia in general has something for all budgets during the winter sales. Shoppers will find a vast selection of articles sold at some bargain prices along the Corso Buenos Aires shopping Avenue (the biggest in Milan and one of the largest in Europe) and Via Torino, as well as via Montenapoleone and via della Spiga where you will find the most prestigious stores and top italian brands such as Dolce e Gabbana, Prada, Tod’s, Giorgio Armani, and Versace, amongst many others.
So, now you know where to go to bag the bargains but brace yourself because if you want to get some really good deals make sure you get there early before all the best stuff goes first.
