5 of the most fashionable places to have a European city break

Everybody has a preferred type of holiday; some people like to scale mountains, others prefer to relax on a sandy beach with the waves lapping peacefully in the distance. Here at Fiore we are firm believers in the magic of the fashion holiday. Fashion holidays give you the opportunity to soak in different styles from various cities across the world. If you plan on going on holiday this year, why not visit one of the many European fashion cities? Below are our top picks for the perfect European fashion getaway.

Paris, France

The Louvre in the eveningParis is THE destination for those who love to get swept away by all things passion and culture. Very little will make you feel more like Audrey Hepburn than a ride on a Bateau Mouche down the Seine; you could then discover the secrets of Mona Lisa’s smile at The Louvre, and end the evening looking over this beautiful city from the Eiffel Tower.

Once you have soaked up all the culture you can handle, you could take a stroll down the rue Saint-Honoré, where you can window shop - and maybe even splash your cash - at a variety of elite French boutiques.

To fully immerse yourself into the Parisian culture, we recommend the Lulu Guinness Tri Colour Clutch Bag; the red lips scream romance, and what better place to show off your amorous side than in the City of Love?

Milan, Italy

Italy is home to an expansive range of prolific fashion designers, including Gianni Versace, Giorgio Armani, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana; they all house their labels in Milan, making it a city of pilgrimage for all lovers of fashion. You can make fashion look effortless with a Bridget Monochrome Tote on your arm as you explore the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is the home of the very first Prada store! If that only enflames your desire to see more, you could always head to the Golden Rectangle, Milan’s fashion district. It’s easy to see why Milan is considered one of the fashion capitals of the world!

London, UK

Big Ben and the House of Parliament in LondonWe could never make a list of the most fashionable cities without mentioning London. Whether it’s the hand-tailored formalwear of Savile Row, the chic boutiques of Carnaby Street or the alternative stylings of Camden, London has a style to suit every personality! It’s not difficult to forget that one of the most fashionable cities in the world is just a train journey away.

If you do plan on visiting London, then it’s almost obligatory that you see a show in the gorgeous West End district, and with the Tumble and Hide Gladstone Bag you can unleash your inner Mary Poppins; Julie Andrews would be proud.

Barcelona, Spain

Art, tapas and glorious heat; whether you’re a fashionista or not, Barcelona is a must-visit city! In the summer, pastel colours are definitely the go-to, which makes the Nappa Originals Body Bag in pink perfect for storing your water and sun-tan cream while you explore this gorgeous city by foot.

Once you’ve gotten your fill of the beautiful architecture and delicious seafood, you can finish off your city break with some retail therapy; brands such as Mango, Zara and Zazo&Brull may come at a price, but you’ll regret not taking a little bit of Catalonia home with you.

Berlin, Germany

Brandenburg Gate at night-time

Last but not least is Berlin, a city of history; you can stroll down Unter den Linden with your Gianni Conti shoulder bag and see a whole host of neo-classical architecture, including Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin State Opera and Humboldt University (the oldest university in Berlin, created in 1810). Of course, no visit to Berlin is complete without visiting the remnants of the Berlin Wall!

No fashion holiday is ever complete without a shopping trip; in Berlin you’ll want to visit Hackescher Markt, which houses a range of small boutique stores, along with newer Berlin labels. Hackescher Markt is the place to go if you want to explore a more unusual style of clothing and accessories.

Wherever you decide to go this summer, be it Milan, London, Barcelona or somewhere a bit more local, pack smart and stylishly; visit our online shop for a range of stylish and elegant handbags and purses.
