The quarantine has been a true ordeal for all the fashionistas. Tuning in to the latest fashion brands at Zoom parties or live on Instagram and buying at least a couple of wrongly-fitting jeans due to online shopping issues – not exactly our idea of paradise!
We have been anxiously watching the progress of the global fashion industry: brands cancelling their shows and reducing production, models requalifying as fashion photographers and shooting the latest collections on their webcam from home isolation. It seemed that the world would never be the same again…
Now that the lockdown measures are lifted, we are slowly going back to our new/old reality. That’s when we realize that our summer wardrobe is missing! It is warm enough for linen shirts and sandals, but coats and gloves are still fresh in our memory.
We are hesitantly venturing into the shops. Sanitizers, masks and social distancing are the new shopping reality. But nothing lasts forever. HelloMonaco is happy to take you on a shopping tour for a new trendy wardrobe.
Finding the best deals
The Mall Firenze opened in 2001. Surrounded by the lush Tuscan valleys, this mini-city of exclusive brands has won the love of fashionistas around the world, becoming an important destination on the Italian luxury shopping map.
This place was chosen for a reason. It is in Florence that the first international fashion show was held in 1951 by the “Made in Italy” creator, Giovanni Battista Giorgini. In addition, Villa Torrigiani hosted the meeting of fashion influencers from Europe and the US. Magazine editors, buyers and photographers were among the privileged guests. Ever since this significant world premiere, Florence has been closely associated with Italian fashion.
