It has been acknowledged for decades that Milan is one among the capitals of fashion thanks to its boutiques and glamorous department stores scattered all around the city. Though it’s not just garments, bags and shoes we are talking about, as fashion in Milan is also synonymous with shopping for jewels and watches, easy to spot at the shiny windows around the trendy Fashion Quad and not only.
Indeed, various districts are also home to boutiques offering a striking selection of precious accessories by the greatest names in fashion, luxury jewelry, costume jewelry icons and multi-brand retailers selling the most prestigious names in the sector.
