CONTEMPORARY FLORENCE- Clothing Shops
Florence is the home of the Renaissance, of the classical MASTERS for crying out loud. Everywhere you turn, your jaw drops in awe over the sheer magnificence of masterpieces that are still standing, centuries later. And, there is not a shortage of museums – like the Uffizi – that house them, intact.
We are very proud of Florence as the Queen of fine arts. But we miss the contemporary research and attitude travellers like us would experience in more “modern” cities, and we sometimes just want to see a dot in the middle of a blank canvas at some hipster art studio, you know?
So we are happy to introduce our very recent contemporary scene, taking place mostly in our precious and less known neighborhoods, full of cute, funky boutiques with hand-made jewelry and shoes, trendy bars and original restaurants.
Here are our contemporary recommendations in terms of Clothing Shops!
Luisa Via Roma
Oldest and coolest and most contemporary clothing shop in Florence. Luisa Via Roma is designed by Claudio Nardi (he designed Riva Lofts as well).
Brics and glass with cool clothing & accessories. This is Flow Store.
Independent shop based on a northern European concept and inspired by the atmospheres of the underground hot-lazy neighborhoods in London (Brick lane), Berlin (Mitte), Antwerp, Brooklyn (Williamsburgh). Societe anonyme is located in the funky area of S. Ambrogio in Florence, crossroads of artistic and literary currents.
A piedi nudi nel parco
A piedi nudi nel parco is specialized in high end, Avant Guard and conceptual collection for Men and Woman.
