September is a month of fresh starts. With school bags back on shoulders and heads focused on the academic year to come, embark on the next chapter with some forward-facing fashion. With online learning meaning we may not have invested much energy into looking our best, give your kids something that will have them feeling great, striding back to school in top form. Kids always seem to stretch over the summer months; all the sun, sea, and sand gifts them another centimetre or two, so you might find that last year’s kit is no good and it’s time for a restock. Barberino Designer Outlet brings together some of the coolest and most comfortable kids clothing, with brands such as United Colors of Benetton, Converse, Gap, Adidas and Polo Ralph Lauren proving the perfect choices for sending the kids back to school in style, without breaking the bank.
Of course, it’s not just great for back to school bits! There’s truly something here for everyone, and always at jaw-droppingly discounted prices. Open from 10am to 8pm, Monday to Sunday, this outdoor shopping centre is a mere 30 minutes from Florence, and home to your favourite designer brands at up to 70% off, all year round. With more than 120 boutiques, cafès, restaurants, and the added bonus of free parking, a shopping experience like no other awaits you in the stunning open-air setting, with the immense beauty of the Tuscan landscape greeting you at every turn.
Rest assured that all the necessary health and safety measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 are in place, leaving your focus on your shopping and day-out, as it should be.
With bursting bags and a weight taken off your mind, take a mid-shop pit stop with a complimentary voucher for readers of The Florentine! Just pop into Guest Services upon arrival and let them know you’re a reader to avail of a complimentary coffee or drink.
