Always in Fashion

Tucked quietly away between via Montenapoleone and via della Spiga, the two most exclusive designer shopping streets in Italy

As the sun rises over Four Seasons Hotel Milano, the sounds of birds and church bells often lead guests to imagine that they are in a small village, and in the evening, the area has a distinctly residential feel.

But by day, it’s one of the world’s fashion centres – signature shops of leading Italian designers including Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Prada, Valentino and Versace are just steps from the Hotel, along with outposts of top international labels including Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. Whether you are attending one of the city’s four major fashion weeks in spring and fall (the women’s and men’s collections are shown separately) or simply doing a little personal shopping, Four Seasons is the place for fashion lovers.

And because of its special relationship with local shops, all purchases can be delivered to the Hotel, where staff will stow your bags or, if you prefer, carefully unpack and hang your new couture in your guest room.
