Shopping

Italy is the undisputed home of high fashion.

Spend long hours browsing, trying on and getting measured up, and take home an exclusive souvenir of your time at the lake.

The «Sciura» experience

Indulge on a full day in Milan with Claudia or Patrizia, two authentic Milanese ladies.  They will guide you through the laborious routine of being fabulous, the Italian way.
You will sneak from a hidden boutique to another, savouring some little guilty pleasures in some of Milan’s best kept «foodie» secrets.  You’ll be touring among bakeries and hat makers, the best vintage jewellery address and that unknown shoemaster that seems to craft dreams out of leather..
While enjoying a mouth-watering  lunch you’ll discuss the city latest talk on fashion and design.

Fashion Victim

Fashion is a REALLY serious business in Milan. Meet our fabulous fashion consultant in the Palace’s lobby and allow her to work her magic on you. No door will be closed, from the High fashion made to measure ateliers, to the “by invitation only” privée of Milan shiny boutiques…

Bespoke tailors

Italy is the home of dressmaking. Practising its art since 1869, Sartoria Orefice in Cernobbio is one of our favourite tailors. Step into a veritable world of fabric and watch craftsmen skilfully manoeuvre scissors, needle and thread, reach out and touch the fine fabrics and get measured up for your very own masterpiece of Italian tailoring: the ultimate shopping experience.
