Taking its name from a famed street in Milan, this Italian accessories line offers modern, well-crafted shoes and handbags at affordable prices. Stocking classic designs inspired by well-heeled Europeans, the brand's intimate Soho and Upper East Side boutiques are both outfitted with luxe apartment-style furnishings and favor earthy color palettes. Women--from budding fashionistas to international tourists--lounge around glass-topped coffee tables while waiting to try on demure pastel loafers or Gucci-inspired metallic leather sandals, such as the popular Gesto. As for handbags, the top-selling Forsivo-Flap satchel looks uncannily like the Hermes Birkin bag, and the slim Clio holds just enough for a swanky night out. Gentlemen can get in on the goods as well: Via Spiga offers a well-edited line of leather sandals and loafers.
Hip-hoppers hoard the bright, chunky shoes that dominate this youthful shop, but normal brides will also find a lot to love. The metallic stilettos and strappy ivory leather sandals are classy enough for the big day yet cool enough to wear after.
