I was really excited to read today on WWD.com that Aspesi has launched a new international e-commerce site.
Aspesi is one of my first stops in Milan when I go shopping, along with Piombo (now available at Barneys) and Al Bazar.¬† I want to say the store is world-famous (but it might be Euro-famous?) for their down-filled outerwear – especially their down-filled shirt.
I would imagine I probably have 5 or 6 pieces of Aspesi outerwear in a range of styles – overcoat, shirts, layering vests (like the Italians wear on their scooters!), a nylon sportcoat…
To now be able to buy it online and have it shipped direct to door is not only great because of the convenience, but it is also going to open up space in my suitcase that is always reserved for my new purchases from Milan. ¬†Believe me – a puffy shirt takes more space than you think!
