How to shop


Los Angeles based, italist Inc. offers the largest selection of luxury goods from Italy’s finest fashion retailers. Our site features brand-new, genuine, in-season apparel and accessories from top international brands and emerging designers. We source our products from a curated list of Italian luxury boutiques and retailers, giving you insider access to more than 2,500 brands and 350,000 products. italist allows customers to import items directly from our partners in Italy, which means we offer the same high-quality luxury goods you’d find elsewhere at what we believe are the best prices, often up to 30% - 40% less than the manufacturer suggested retail price depending on the region after including, taxes, and duties.


Different countries use different standards for size measurements, so please refer to our international size conversion chart. Still unsure about your size? We recommend visiting a nearby boutique or luxury retailer to get a sense of your size and fit before purchasing an item. Once you know your size, we’re certain you’ll find the best value and the best selection on italist.

Abandoned Cart Email

Sometimes shoppers fail to complete a purchase due to internet connection issues or problems associated with the transmission of encrypted payment data. For these reasons, if you use and add items to a shopping cart but do not finish a transaction, you may receive an email from us. The purpose of this communication is to notify you of an incomplete purchase; it is not intended to be a marketing email subject to opt-out.
