Most would consider Milan to be Italy’s capital of fashion and design. It is the birthplace of Prada, after all; with the fashion house found on almost every street corner, along with other other Italian heavyweights like Armani, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Fendi.
The cobbled streets of the city attract some of the most prominent names in the fashion industry, especially with the ongoing Milan Fashion Week, which is taking place from 19 to 25 September. It’s not a rare sight, then, to see international models, fashion designers, and some celebrities walking along the cobbled streets of the city — whether they’re heading to shows, after-parties, or just drinks at some of Milan’s trendiest hotels.
Here, we round up the best hotels in the fashion capital favoured by the Fashion Week crowd. From fashion houses making forays into hospitality to 18th-century mansions that have seen some of the most important events in history, these are the hotels to check into (or have a drink at) the next time you’re in Milan.
