Fashion...On a human scale
Located in Piazza Santo Stefano, Camera con vista is one of those places that leave you speechless. Eighteenth-century furniture, design objects, candles, clothing and sculptures, one-of-a-kind home and garden furnishing objects.
Set beneath the Due Torri is Casa dello Sport, Bologna’s temple of unconventional fashion, offering a selection of designer collections off the beaten path.
Ratti, three floors filled with high fashion brands: Dior, Scervino, Alberta Ferretti, Ralph Lauren. It is a favorite with local high-society ladies.
Just behind the corner is L’Inde Le Palais, a lovely concept store with frescoed ceilings offering the best classic clothing collections, from Balmain to Valentino.
Folli Follie is another multibrand store in Bologna: Balenciaga, Balmain, Dries van Noten, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Marni.
And then come the city’s small but lovely boutiques: Cappelleria Trentini, a corner of paradise.
Gala, in Via San Felice, is another small boutique worth the visit: Isabel Marant, Tumori Chisato, Humanoid, Zucca, Gudrun & Gudrun.
