Consider this upscale one-stop (but multioutpost) shop Italy’s answer to Barney’s, albeit on a smaller scale. With nine satellites around Rome, including one outlet, a pop-up men’s shop, and two flagships on the historic center’s Via Babuino, this chainlet of multibrand high-fashion carries an international array of couture curated with an eye toward Roman style. Women will find labels from Alaïa to Moncerl to the Row to Alexander McQueen plus Italian stalwarts like Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino; men’s offerings, while more limited, exhibit a similar spectrum.
