World's Best Bargain Shopping

by Colleen Clark

Fashion Label Outlets, Italy

When fashion editors come to Italy for the runway shows, they'll often skip out early and head for the suburbs of Milan and the hills of Tuscany. It is here—in obscure industrial parks, down poorly marked roads, or in faux-folksy outdoor malls—that the world's most coveted brands dip their well-manicured toes into the realm of affordable pricing. It's like a treasure hunt to find the Prada and Miu Miu outlet near Florence, housed in a building marked only "Space," but once there (follow our directions), you can score real-deal bags, shoes, and clothes at up to 75 percent off. The Mall (pictured), 40 minutes southeast of Florence, sells classics like Fendi and YSL along with Yohji Yamamoto and Alexander McQueen in an open-air retail complex. If you're visiting Milan, head an hour outside the city for Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and many other big labels at the Serravalle Designer Outlet. Or you can venture out of the country altogether: Just over 30 miles from Milan in Switzerland is FoxTown, home of half-off (or more) Prada, Ferragamo, Gucci, and Missoni. Because everyone deserves a little Miuccia in their dolce vita.
