My girlfriend says: “I wish this was my closet”.
Not that you would need advice on finding a tree in a forest (in this case a shop in Milan) but often it’s the small, hidden ones that need the point out.
The area around Navigli is better known for its endless number of bars and restaurants but less for its cool shops. However, there are more and more small independent shops popping up, especially in and around via Vigevano. Among them is the treasure box, Garden K., with an amazing selection of unique pieces of women’s clothing & accessories. The wide variety of designs are hip, brave & beautiful, of high quality and still with a reasonable price tag.
I love this place because I don’t need to spend time on finding something special for my girl as the owner of the shop has already done that. Any piece in this boutique belongs here and the tasteful and careful selection alone is worthwhile passing by.
I don’t know if it is the long distance (all pieces come from Korea, which also solves the mystery of the K. in the name; the owner, a Korean lady, does the whole clothing selection) or the fact that of every item there’s only one but my girl feels special in every one of them.
Note: The shop is also open every last Sunday of the month.
