5 Italian e-commerce platforms to discover The ultimate digital destinations where you can find luxury and independent brands, home collections and accessories

In the last year our shopping experience has completely changed, we have partly had to give up the pleasure of wandering around the cities and spending hours in the dressing rooms of our favorite stores trying on outfits to wear on more or less special occasions. The shopping experience has moved almost entirely to the web, where thanks to e-commerce we can find everything we would buy in the store. Precisely for this reason, several physical stores and concept stores have had to reinvent themselves by launching into digital or expanding their online selection. Selection that often includes luxury brands, independent and sustainable brands, home collections and accessories, carefully curated to stand out and express their uniqueness. Which are the most interesting? nss G-Club has selected 5 Italian e-commerce platforms you should keep an eye on.

 

1. MADE IN CHIARO SCURO

Made in Chiaro Scuro is the digital evolution of Chiaro Scuro concept store, born in Piancogno in 1996 from an idea of Giovanna and Nicola, as a space dedicated to design in all its forms. Today it is an eclectic destination where you can find books, clothing, artistic perfumery, food products and design items, a various selection of products that have two key elements in common: quality and uniqueness. Thanks to continuous research, Chiaro Scuro has become a reference point for style, innovation and modernity, both in its physical place and in the digital version: the e-commerce offers the same refined and unique selection of emerging and famous brands to give a cool twist to your style (or your home!).

Store: via Nazionale 102, Piancogno (BS)
