Outlets in Milan. Part 1
OUTLET CLOTHES AND OUTLET FACTORY IN MILAN
Once it was called Spacci, but for Milan to bring the charm of the eighties and nineties, this definition seemed too excessive and when translated into other languages the concept was disclosed not exactly.
It was so that, starting from the saving circle along Brenzett street, which was the first of Spacci Aziendali (a place of branded goods selling) of fashion brands, Milanese or international, such as Etro, Midali, Fusco, Levi’s, and then the advantage was given to the name, which comes from the USA – Outlet di Abbigliamento.
Despite the fact that the content remains the same, we are talking not about stores, but often about real wholesale warehouses of a large area where companies keep unsold stocks of previous collections. We are talking about ideal products or with some small factory defects, the only fault of which is to be too “out-of-date”, but these things are still beautiful, sometimes even better than those placed in the designer shop Windows in the city centre. In fact in the field of fashion it sometimes takes just a few months to become out-of-date!
And there’s nothing wrong about it, because from Armani long dresses for a mother to a pair of jeans for a student, somewhere between these two extremes there are all the clothes the people of Milan dream about, those who visit Outlet clothing stores in search of good-fit branded clothes, but primarily clothes sold at a discount!
Milan warehouse store in Bronzetti street is the closest to the central office and the first of those that were open, but the ones in Beato Angelico street or in Melegnano street now offer a generous range of knitwear collections from designer Martino Midali. It’s not just about sweaters, cardigans and hoodies, but also pants, coats, skirts and anything else that can be made of wool, in all possible colors and textures. All these elegant and classic clothes are left from previous collections. Discounts starts from 30% on last year’s items and up to 70% for older collections, but these clothes are always beautiful and elegant. Each warehouse has its own working hours, therefore it is a good idea to call in advance to make sure.
