This weekend there are summer sales happening at every corner of the e-commerce universe. And as I have Italian holidays on the mind, what better to shop than sales featuring some of the top Italian designers? All of the boutiques below are especially special if you are outside of Italy as I’ve found that these shops don’t frequently pop up due to geolocation in search functions.
From Valentino to Versace, Max Mara to Moschino, these are the sites to visit and get your luxury Italian fix on discount! Also, featured below is one of my most must-visit shops on this PLANET (in-person and online).
While we await word that travel (and shopping) in Italy is back on, Coltorti is as close as some of us might get to shopping an Italian corso. Coltorti is an international luxury fashion retailer with over 80 years of experience, 4 boutiques in Italy and 180 brands in their portfolio. I bought my favorite starry hat from this shop two years ago when it was totally sold out in the US after Coachella. And another shop where the packaging gets me every time!
Best Selection: Bottega Veneta & Beachwear
Sale: Up to 50% Off
Discover over 1,000 of the world’s best luxury brands at a savings of 30%-40% off US retail markups. From in-season, next-season, or even seasons past, Italist is the place to find what a simple google search won’t churn out.
Best Selection: Mugler and Accessories
Sale: Up to 60% off
I just discovered this Italian retailer but I must say, I am quite impressed. They seem to have that one raffia bag I’ve never seen on another site, or that little dress I looked for three seasons ago resurfacing in their outlet. Also, love that they have lifestyle. A differentiator from every other this list.
Best Selection: Lifestyle
Sale: SS20 Marked Down & Outlet
Although Munich-born Mytheresa might not sound rich with Italian everything, this is my top commercial shop on this list! With over 250 brands and 1,200 new arrivals each week, it’s hard to deny Mytheresa the boutique to beat. An added bonus, Mytheresa has the details down: fast and reliable delivery, excellent customer service, top security and data protection, and free returns and exchanges within 30 days.
Best Selection: Overall
Sale: Up to 50% off
Aloe & Wolf
ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE BOUTIQUES ON THIS PLANET IS NOW ONLINE! Aloe & Wolf, a vintage shop in Siena, Italy, combines theater, historical Italian fashion designers, and rich time pieces. Cited as one of the top vintage retailers in Europe, and beloved by locals and celebrities alike, Aloe & Wolf has once in a lifetime finds. Although they’re new to e-commerce, I couldn’t vouch for them more. This is the site you NEED to visit before your next buy.
Best Selection: Vintage
Sale: Always on sale and eco-friendly! It’s vintage!
