Extracted from Meet Me in Milan.
Opened in 1990, this sprawling mix of food, art and fashion was the first concept store. Today with its own restaurant and three-room hotel, it’s less a shop than a destination. Wonderful presentation shows off excellent buying in books, shoes and clothes, and the attention paid to giftwrap, bags and packaging makes it hard to resist at least a small purchase. Unless it’s torrential out, make the effort to visit the roof terrace.
