FoxTown

FoxTown
La Citta della moda
- place for serious out-let shopping!!!
.
Heard about it from Swiss friends,
couldn't resist the temptation to visit there
- located on the Swiss & Italian border in Mendrisio
.
Open 7 days a week 11am -7pm
.
There are 160 shops with 30-70% off the normal prices,
Shops are in 3 levels
starting with brands like
Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger, Gant, Benetton, Polo Ralph Lauren,
Calvin Klein, Guess, 7 for all mankind, Bally...
all away up to
Gucci, Versace, YSL, Prada, Tod's,
Burberry, Dior, Etro, Missoni...
.
All the shops are spacious, one brand shops,
goods nicely on display
- possible to make real bargains!
- usually just one or couple of pieces left,
and not all sizes
.
Bought a pair of light grey shorts by Cerruti
- really needed one
and a black woollen skirt suit by Cerruti
- both were the final pieces and exactly my size
.
At Missoni and Prada found some nice pieces
but the sizes were either too small or too big,
so nothing from them
.

FoxTown Factory Stores
Via A. Maspoli 18
6850 Mendrisio
- app. 15km from Lugano
- even tought it's easily seen from the motorway,
it was quite difficult to find the right turning and way there!
