y now it’s a well-known fact that several of the greats of fashion have expanded into the realm of beauty. Dressing from head to toe in a favourite fashion label may well include perfume and beauty collections and treatments for him and her, strikingly displayed at magnificent boutiques in the centre.

Let’s be honest, more often than not, one of the first things that comes to mind when giving a gift is a perfume or cosmetic, especially now that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.

THE FRAGRANCES OF THE QUADRILATERO Get on the bandwagon and be seduced by the stunning designer packaging (collector’s items in their own right) covering beauty products created by Chanel, Burberry, Dior, Gucci, Fendi and Valentino, and don’t forget the products of Giorgio Armani that are characterized by his sought-after aesthetic and quality, and are on sale at his boutique at number 31 via Manzoni, the kingdom of ‘King Giorgio’. There are also many monobrand stores like the Acqua di Parma boutique in via Gesù, an ideal location to rediscover the innate values of Italian excellence and artisanship. Here, in addition to choosing from amongst a vast selection of fragrances and grooming accessories for both men and women, you can also purchase Acqua di Parma’s timeless Colonia which still comes in the brand’s iconic Art Deco bottle (www.acquadiparma.com). 1989 saw the birth of Etro’s ‘fragrance library’. A universe, consisting of fragrances bottled in the brand’s iconic flacons that emanate colour and envelop the senses. You can find them at the brand’s centrally located standalone boutique at number 2 via

Verri, corner of via Bigli (www.etro.com). The eye-catching boutiques of historic perfumer Jo Malone are located at number 18 via Manzoni and at number 13 via Santa Maria alla Porta, in the corso Magenta district. This is a world dedicated to the rarest fragrances steeped in British culture, where heritage pieces of furniture in shades of beige and black are juxtaposed with more contemporary elements, creating an environment where shopping becomes a truly unique experience (www.jomalone.com). Last but not least, Rinascente in piazza Duomo is another centrally located reference point, where all the most exclusive brands in the sector are found under one roof. After crossing this threshold, you will be welcomed by an entire floor devoted to fragrances and make-up, with dedicated corners where you can treat yourself to a customized make-up experience executed by a highly qualified staff member. (www.rinascente.it). AMIDST THE PERFUMES OF BRERA If you happen to find yourself in the picturesque Brera district, we recommend three go-to

Acqua di Parma The Barberino’s services include different type of shaves, facials, manicures, haircuts and lots more to boot, proposed as real rituals of wellbeing.

Barberino's addresses for beauty addicts. Set within a truly ‘minimal chic’ ambience, the Diego dalla Palma make-up studio offers the entire range of the Milanese guru’s products dedicated to professional make-up and beauty treatments. These are designed to satisfy the aesthetic requirements of even the most discerning women (www.diegodallapalma.com). Just a little further on, historic perfumer Creed, boasting 250 years in the industry, tempts shoppers inside with its distinctive scents and old-world atmosphere. At this small boutique, you can also find the entire range of fragrances of this time-honoured brand, in addition to Creed’s latest creations (creed.cale.it). A new arrival, so to speak, is The Merchant of Venice. It’s impossible not to notice its boutique located at number 4 via Brera, a unique opportunity to get close up and personal with this historic brand which brought its precious collections to Milan a few years ago. These exclusive collections are currently available in a line of contemporary fragrances contained in elegant bottles inspired by the 14  W H E R E M I L A N I F E B R UA R Y 2019

tradition of the Venetian Republic, its superior craftsmanship and its age-old trade with the Far East (www.themerchantofvenice.com). NEW OPENINGS… BUT NOT TOO MANY! Milan offers numerous innovations for beauty addicts visiting the city. The Beautyaholic’s Shop, the well-known online boutique of international natural and organic cosmetics and makeup, has opened a branch in the Coin multistore in piazza V Giornate (www.beautyaholicshop.com). The Sephora flagship store in corso Vittorio Emanuele hosts the new Class Hair Style Bar. Here, Luigi Neri’s team of Class hairstylists are on-hand to offer you customized consultations and hair care treatments using products by Kérastase, Shu Uemura and L’Oréal Professionnel (www.sephora.it). Located just steps from piazza San Babila, we find Marchina Hair Styling. Established in 1972, this hair salon for men and women is renowned for its studies on cuts and colour (www.marchinahairstyling.com).

The new Nashi Argan salons are also a recent addition to the city’s beauty scene. These salons can be found in different locations across the city, including the futuristic CityLife Shopping District. Here, you can experience a highly professional service enhanced by premiumquality products. Nashi Argan is a 100% Made in Italy cosmetic brand that works with the utmost respect for nature. Its zero-impact packaging is designed thanks to the use of recycled and recyclable materials and to the whole production process that only uses energy from renewable sources.

are 100% certified organic. All treatments are free of sodium chloride, sulphates, phosphates and parabens! (www.nashiargan.it). Older, but also equally notable is Aldo Coppola. This time-honoured company was founded in 1973 thanks to the creative talent of its founder Aldo Coppola, a true innovator in the world of hair care. Over time, Aldo Coppola became a benchmark in the world of beauty and fashion, collaborating with the best fashion brands, photographers and top international fashion magazines. Among its various Milanese salons, we recommend the one at number 110 corso Garibaldi and the salon on the eighth floor of Rinascente in piazza Duomo... for an injection of beauty with a view! (www.aldocoppola.com) GROOMING FOR MEN For today’s style-conscious gents, an absolute must while visiting Milan are its barber shops. Now that old-world barbers are back in fashion, the technical quality and the grooming experience dedicated exclusively to men has been totally revolutionized. The city offers numerous locations beginning with Barber Shop D&G in corso Venezia. Inside this atelier, customers will find themselves immersed in an opulent, luxurious ambience, reminiscent of the 1950s. Between a shave and a cut, you can also enjoy a moment’s relaxation at the Bar Martini by Dolce&Gabbana, or indulge in a spot of retail therapy at the D&G Store (www.dolcegabbana.it). Barberino’s (currently located at number 10 corso Magenta 10 and number 11 via Cerva, San Babila district) has its own line of 100% natural, high-end grooming products,

SALUS PER AQUAM We end our tour with several highly exclusive destinations for body and mind wellness…in other words spas! Relax and regenerate after a long day’s shopping with a memorable wellness treatment at one of the city’s spectacular spas. In the heart of the fashion district on via Gesù, there’s a place that offers modern wellness treatments on the premises of a 15th-century monastery, where frescoes, vaulted ceilings and ancient columns are woven into the contemporary vision of celebrated architect Patricia Urquiola: The Four Seasons Milano. One of the most innovative treatments is ‘Gold Fashion Milan’, a new, exclusive ‘all gold’ treatment, specifically designed to restore balance to the mind and body including a special ritual dedicated to the body and the face. The former begins with a scrub using Dead Sea Salts, followed by a honey-textured Argan oil and amber powder massage, while the latter envisages the application of a mask and tonic for an instant illuminating effect.

Bullfrog

A propos ‘luxurious’ wellness treatments, thanks to a partnership with beauty giant La Mer, Bulgari Hotels & Resorts in via Fratelli Gabba offers guests a unique Milanese wellness experience. Its most sought-after treatments include the ‘La Mer Bulgari Face Treatment’ involving the use of precious stones with which the beautician ‘caresses’ various areas of the face, a delightfully pleasant way of exploiting the energy flows emitted by each gem (www.bulgarihotels.com). Located just steps from the city’s streets of fashion and finance, the Palazzo Parigi hotel hosts the Grand Spa, an exclusive oasis of relaxation spread over 1,700 square meters. This is the ideal place to escape from the stress of city life and restore balance to the body and mind. The spa boasts seven different treatment areas each offering a specific themed experience. A real trip around the world without moving from the centre of Milan. In addition to a wide range of beauty treatments using premium products signed by Valmont, the Grand Spa offers several unique spaces, all flooded with natural light, designed to immerse guests in a paradise of water, music, scents and massages (www.palazzoparigi.com).

The historic maison of haute joaillerie has been given a makeover, choosing the creative concept of architect Peter Marino to restyle its ‘Milanese home’ in the heart of the city’s centrally located via Montenapoleone. In addition to its scintillating collection of jewelry, visitors to the store will be instantly captivated by its striking architectural design, an intriguing combination of innovation, opulence and tradition; hallmark features of the fascinating, eclectic style of the New York architect. The true essence of the boutique lies in its

details, in that subtle, distinctly Milanese exuberance, that has made minimalism its signature feature. The via Montenapoleone space retains the unmistakable architectural features shared by all Bulgari boutiques, but is distinguished by its inimitable references to key figure of Milanese design and architecture of the 1930s, including Piero Portaluppi and Villa Necchi Campiglio, the magnificent residence built in 1935, and considered by many to be the Milanese architect’s urban masterpiece. Featuring clean-lines, and flawlessly detailed interior spaces, decorative furnishings and works of art, the sheer opulence of this magical place is mirrored in the new boutique (you can

Sculpted in white marble and glass, the winter garden is an airy, light-filled space featuring floors in Lasa marble worked as a mosaic with Bois Jourdan marble and porphyry. The scenic layout of this space is further enhanced by the extension of the design from to the floor to the back wall, framing the majestic floral installation by Japanese artist Azuma Makoto, whose brilliant, vivid colours bear witness to Bulgari’s passion for colours, art and nature. >> www.bulgari.com Via Montenapoleone, 2.

Tax Free Refund Guide 1. VAT (in Italian: IVA) is a value added tax on goods and services, and is part of the European Union’s value added tax system. 2. In some cases, travellers may be granted a VAT refund. This refund does not cover the services supplied by hotels, restaurants, taxis or agencies. 3. You may be eligible for a VAT refund provided that: • you are a non-EU resident; • the goods purchased are intended for personal or family use only and are carried in your luggage; • the overall value of the goods purchased exceeds 154,94 Euro (VAT included); • the purchase is certified by an invoice. This invoice should include a description of the goods purchased, your personal information as well as the details of your passport or any other equivalent document; • the goods leave EU territory by the end of the third month after the month that you bought them; • several specific customs formalities are complied with; • the invoice is returned to the Italian retailer within four months after the purchase was made. 4. The goods purchased and the relevant invoice must be shown at the customs exit point when leaving EU territory (if you intend to pack the purchased items into your check-in luggage, you must go to Customs BEFORE checking in). 5. After leaving EU territory, the traveller must return the original invoice, regularly endorsed by the customs office, to the Italian retailer. Said invoice must be returned within four months from the date when the document was issued. 6. The refund can be made directly by the Italian retailer (however, make sure that the shop you’ve chosen displays a “Tax Free Shopping” or “Euro Tax Free” sign in its window). 7. Several Tax-Free companies are able to offer immediate VAT cash refunds when the goods leave either Italian or EU territory (thus exonerating the passenger from having to return the invoice to the retailer). However, this procedure only applies at major international airports or main border crossings. Most major department stores have Tax Free Refund offices. 8. The services provided by Tax-Free companies imply the payment of a small administrative sum which is directly deducted from the amount of VAT refunded to the traveller. 9. In the event of a traveller not receiving a VAT refund within a reasonable period of time, he or she should re-contact the Italian retailer or one of the aforementioned companies. 10. However, please note, VAT cannot be refunded directly by customs offices. Source: www.agenziadoganemonopoli.gov.it/ portale/ee/citizen/vta-refund

an amazing array of fashion items under just one roof! Just a little further on, the window displays of Rocca 1794 will seduce you with their collections of several of the world’s most desirable jewellery and watch brands. Piazza Duomo is also home to the largest Tiffany & Co. boutique in Europe. Spread over two floors of a historic 1870 building, it is located in front of the Arengario and the Museo del Novecento.

Lavazza ● ●

● Felice a Testaccio ●

Milan’s historic centre is contained within a relatively small area, easy to explore on foot. There’s no need to choose between planning a ‘cultural’ itinerary or a ‘shopping’ itinerary because you can combine the two and get the most out of both. In addition to being packed with several of Milan’s most famous attractions, this area is home to myriad shops, including big-name fashion brands, historic ‘botteghe’ and some of the city’s most sought-after cafés, bars and eateries. In the space of just a few kilometers you’ll find the Duomo, the Galleria, Teatro alla

Scala, the Castle, the ancient Basilica di Sant’Ambrogio, as well as sporadic traces of ‘Roman Milan’, the first settlement and the predecessor of present-day Milan. AROUND THE DUOMO The Duomo is the undisputed symbol of Milan and the heart of the city. In the immediate vicinity you’ll find several of the world’s most exclusive addresses. For the ultimate one-stop shopping experience look no further than the Rinascente flagship store (under the arcades):

TOWARDS TEATRO ALLA SCALA: THE GALLERIA Known as the ‘living room’ of Milan, the Galleria links Piazza del Duomo to piazza della Scala. For the past 150 years, it has been a meeting place for the Milanese and their guests. In the Galleria, haute couture takes centre stage. In addition to Prada and Versace, other standouts include Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Armani, Borsalino, Luisa Spagnoli, Bric’s, Tod’s, Stefanel and Massimo Dutti alternated with historic workshops (whose signs serve as an indication of their storied past). A reference point in Milan for the best Made in Italy cuts is Valli Tessuti Alta Moda, with the perfect fabrics to make elegant outfits. You say ‘aperitivo’ and you immediately think of Camparino in Galleria, a landmark location and a reference point where Milan’s elite meet to partake in one of Italy’s oldest social traditions! Carlo Cracco’s new locale is spread over four floors and focuses on opulent aesthetic and culinary offerings, from breakfast to post-theatre dining. For those in search of a taste of tradition, located just nearby is Luini (renowned for its one-of-a-kind “panzerotti”). Conversely, those favouring a more sought-after gourmet experience can either opt to eat at Ristorante Galleria where you enjoy a taste of Milanese food and hospitality (for generations, the Galli

VALLI TESSUTI ALTA MODA A reference point in Milan for the best Made in Italy cuts. Located in via Verdi, just steps from Teatro alla Scala, here expert staff will assist you in the search for the perfect fabric to make elegant outfits, prêt-à-porter or formal wear. These fabrics are inspired by the patterns of the most up-todate haute couture collections. Valli stocks a wide assortment of exquisite fabrics for men (including pinstripes and prince of Wales check by Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana) and women (Valentino and Ungaro), as well as bolts of cloth to make coats and outerwear, shirts, accessories and bridal gowns. vallitessuti.com Via G.

family has defined Milanese hospitality in the Galleria!) or at Ristorante Savini, one of Milan’s most iconic landmark restaurants, or at the Marchesi alla Scala restaurant. Don’t miss the Lavazza flagship store, a space where coffee lovers can sample an authentic espresso and innovative coffeebased recipes. TOWARDS THE CASTLE By walking just a few kilometers from the Cathedral, in a north-westerly direction, you’ll reach Castello Sforzesco, another of the city’s most symbolic monuments. The castle was the resident of the ruling families in Milan between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Today, it hosts several museums and one of the city’s best-loved green spaces. If you walk from Piazza Duomo in the direction of Cordusio, after passing Piazza Mercanti, you’ll come to the new Starbucks Reserve Roastery Milano, a ‘glocal’ phenomenon that combines Milanese specialties with a format that’s loved the world over. Continuing onwards along via Dante, you’ll find myriad shops and eateries designed to satisfy your every whim. For a culturalrecreational break, head to the Chiostro Nina Vinchi, at no. 2 via Rovello, where a bookstore and the new Piccolo Caffè & Restaurant, offering day-long dining, provide insight into the history of the Piccolo Teatro, Milan’s premiere theatre venue. wThe Segway Tour Milan, an alternative means of exploring the city, starts next door, at no. 1 via Rovello. Apropos tours, remember that Piazza Castello is the departure point for Zani Viaggi’s City Sightseeing Tours on opentop coaches and the place from which the majority of shuttles depart for some of Italy’s finest outlets.

TOWARDS SANT’AMBROGIO While the Duomo is Milan’s best-known church on an international level, there’s another religious site that’s just as dear to the Milanese. The Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio, Milan’s second most important church, is dedicated to the patron saint of the city. This building, of enormous historic and architectural value, is well worth a visit. Built in the 4th century A.D. and, therefore, much older than the Duomo, it’s located approximately one and half kilometers from the cathedral, a route that, when crossed on foot, allows you to immerse yourself in the most ancient part of Milan’s history. In this area, you’ll find the remains of Mediolanum, Roman Milan, including the Forum, the Circus, the walls and, in the subterranean areas of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, the Cardo and Decumanus. You only need to walk a few streets down from the areas surrounding the Duomo to see a change in the urban landscape: fewer shops of big-name international brands, more old-world ‘botteghe’ and a few unexpected delights. If you walk from the Duomo in the direction of via Torino, you’ll come to via Spadari, home to two cult addresses. At no. 9, Peck, an internationally renowned temple of gastronomy. This historic deli showcases an incredible selection of cheeses, charcuterie, prestigious wines, fresh pasta, truffles, authentic Milanese risotto and breaded cutlets, plus panettone year-round. Peck is a pleasure island for anyone who loves to taste, but also only admire or delight in the delectable aromas of high-quality food which can be sampled in various forms at its relaxed in-house café or luxury restaurant. Other places that are well worth a visit while shopping in the area include Maurilio Calzature, for high-quality shoes; Daniela De Marchi, who showcases her collection

of highly original jewelry in via dei Piatti and Fortura Giocattoli in via Olmetto, a centuryold toy mecca that will delight young and old alike. An absolute must-visit! In the vicinity, there are also other options for lunch or dinner: Milanese cuisine in an intimate atmosphere at Ristorante Olmetto in via Disciplini; or, if Milan is your only stopover and you’re regretting not having tasted the stronger flavours of Roman cuisine, don’t despair, because in via del Torchio you’ll find Felice a Testaccio, a spin-off of the famous Roman restaurant. On reaching Sant’Ambrogio, after visiting the Basilica, linger a little longer and explore its surrounding areas. In the same square, at number 16, you’ll find Chris Cerf, a boutique hosting the vibrant, elegant collections created by this well-known designer of Brazilian origin. Just a little further on, after admiring Giulia Colussi’s artistic jewelry in Giardino Calderini, end your tour on a high note and head to via San Vittore to sample or purchase the ‘chocolate gems’ created by Neuhaus Maître Chocolatier, a must-visit gourmet boutique selling original Belgian, handmade pralines – a totally unmissable treat!

Neuhaus Maître Chocolatier

Boasting 105 years of history, Fortura Giocattoli offers a large assortment of toys and party items, from the most traditional to the trendiest, at competitive prices. The store’s multilingual staff is always on-hand to offer you assistance. Also available: a delivery service, high-quality creative workshops, and a new entertainment service for parties, even in the case of short stays. www.fortura.it Via Olmetto, 10 - T: 02 861670.
