Outlets in the city
If you want to take the maximum advantage of the sales experience, we recommend focusing on fashion outlets that offer additional discounts on their collections. Those of you who prefer shopping in the centre rather than venturing farther afield should head to the Dmag Outlet. Dmag has three stores in the city (two in the via Manzoni area and one in the Tortona neighbourhood) and is one of the best-kept secrets of Milanese fashion addicts, who flock here to browse its fabulous assortment of luxury Italian and international fashion labels at highly competitive prices (www.dmag.eu). In via fratelli Bronzetti, non far from piazza V Giornate, you’ll find Il Salvagente, one of Milan’s first fashion outlets, offering all the perks of city shopping but with far more palatable price tags, especially during sale time (www.salvagente.com). Located approximately 15 minutes from the centre of the city, but easily accessible with public transport, Scalo Milano is the only city-based outlet village in Italy. Home to 130 boutiques, 14 restaurants and 20 design stores, at Scalo Milano you can purchase both Italian and international brands at outlet prices, with year-round discounts of from 30%-70%, plus the latest creations at list price. A free shuttle service, departing Tuesday through Friday from the Stazione Centrale or Largo Cairoli, will drop you directly in front of your favourite shops (scalomilano.it).
