Shopping in Capri: boutiques and luxury stores
During your vacation in Capri you will experience this consistent feeling like time has stopped. Capri is a one-of-a-kind place in the world with unique landscape, architecture, nature, views and way of life, where you might constantly feel like living in a 60s movie. A dreamy island chosen by international celebrities, divas, aristocrats as a holiday destination as well as location for their wedding.
It’s a glamorous locality, with its own unique style when it comes to clothing, accessories, jewelry.
Capri’s luxury shopping paradise spreads in a few streets in its city center. The highest concentration of luxury shops is along Via Camerelle, from there you can walk to the next street Via Vittorio Emanuele where some other prestigious stores are located, reaching the famous La Piazzetta (Piazza Umberto I) and continuing then your shopping stroll in Via Le Botteghe.
Here you will find the stores of the biggest Italian and international names of luxury fashion. Gucci, Valentino, Fendi, Blumarine, among the others, plus local exclusive multibrand boutiques selling the collection of all the most important clothing’s and accessories’ designers. Grey Flannel (Via Vittorio Emanuele, 5) and La Parisienne (Piazza Umberto I), are probably the classiest ones. Besides, you can’t miss the chance to get your unique pieces of Capri’s iconic items.
A pair of handmade sandals is absolutely a must, and probably the most famous designer is Canfora (Via Camerelle, 3); their distinctiveness lies in the combination of a sole that they describe as eternal with the finest jewelry for the straps. Jackie Kennedy used to buy her chic sandals here, and you can choose the same models which they still make.
Make sure you also get your own custom-tailored Capri pants. The best choice will be to stop at the boutique La Parisienne (Piazza Umberto I), renowned for creating the original pants style for Jackie Kennedy whose model is now called the Jackie O pant, and later making their custom Capris for stars such as Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren.
To bring the scent of your vacation back home, have a stop at Carthusia (Via Camerelle, 10) for the most famous perfume made in Capri with local herbs and flowers, and some delicious soap as well.
An iconic chic jewel that you can only buy in Capri is a Campanella by Chantecler (Via Vittorio Emanuele, 49/51), a small bell-shaped pendant decorated with diamonds and precious stones. Chantecler’s jewels were worn by the greatest celebrities of the XX centuries and they perfectly embody the pure spirit of La Dolce Vita.
