In Milan and feel like shopping? Several areas can be the answer to your need.
Of course you can hop on the red line and get off at Porta Venezia for the never ending Corso Buenos Aires. Or stay in for a few more stops and exit at the Duomo. Both very shoppable. Problem: these zones offer you the exact same stores as your main shopping mall back home.
But if you’re looking for a different vibe, Ripa di Porta Ticinese – near to metro station Porta Genova – is the place to go. Walking parallel to the almost romantic canal, you’ll pass arty boutiques and vintage shops. And there is Reruns – Strascé. Behind the doors of this cozy store hides a vintage paradise. Especially if you’re looking for bags. Crocodile leather, a classy Chanel or a huge doctor bag. You name it, they’ve got it. All of such good quality, they’ve got the potention to show you dog-like devotion for years. So to all bag lovers: Ripa di Porta Ticinese number 21 it is!
I found myself this leather second-hand backpack. Isn’t it cute?
