italist isn’t just for familiar designers and shapes, but harder-to-find ones too
One of the benefits of our unique retail model is that we have the eye and expertise of hundreds of independent retail buyers in Italy. Collectively, they have decades of experience, always a strong feeling for the next big trends, and a sense of which emerging designers will hit it big.
On italist, we bring that valuable insight to you, offering over 200,000 items from 1,000 international luxury and designer brands—both the ones you know, like Valentino, Givenchy, and Bottega Veneta, as well as relatively unknown names, like Alexandre Vauthier, Gu_de, Paloma Barceló, and Jejia.
Check italist First
Thanks to our network of partner boutiques and wide product selection, we often have in-stock what others are already sold out of (and won’t have back in stock any time soon). Plus, at a significant savings over other shops:
Looking for…a Jacquemus Le Chiquito bag? When everyone was sold out, we had them.
Looking for…Bottega Veneta’s The Pouch clutch (an instant icon)? They go in and out of stock constantly, so if you miss one, check back soon. Oh, and did we mention at a savings of 25%* off list price? That’s shopping at the Italian retail price, with DHL Global Express Shipping straight to you.
Looking for…a men’s Dior Saddle Bag in black calfskin? We’ve got one left in stock (for $2,116 vs. $2,700).
Looking for…Gucci’s SS20 Disney Mickey Mouse collaboration? We’ve got the women’s t-shirt, pyjama top and trousers set, and 1977 Tennis Sneaker. For men, the hoodie, alpaca-wool sweater, and sneakers are also in stock.
Looking for a unique colorway? We have these Aquazzura Deneuve Flats in a unique black-and-white stripe that are particularly rare.
italist customer Dorothy Wang illustrated perfectly how we do it better: when she couldn’t find the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate heels in her size, we had them, and they arrived in short order, in time for her big birthday bash!

When you FIND THE SHOES 🤩🤩🤩 Those who follow my stories might remember that I couldn’t find these @louboutinworld So Kate’s in my size to complete my birthday ensemble anywhere! I’m so happy my savvy friend @kcsukamto told me about @italist_official and I want to share it with anyone else searching for a hard to find item!! My shoes also ended up being a little less than what I would normally pay (yay for Italian pricing) and the automatic express 2 day shipping got them to me in time for the festivities! Happy bday to me!!!! 💝
We’re also one of the few online stores to carry Celine for both women and men! 🙌
A Space to Discover
If it’s unique names you’re after, we’ve got those too. Long before Golden Goose was stocked everywhere, italist had well over fifty of the top models for women and men. At the time (2016), Barneys only had three.
We were also one of the first to carry Amina Muaddi, ever the currently-trending designer in women’s footwear. The same is true for BY FAR handbags and shoes, and cuddly, cozy brand Mou, which we sold a ton of during the cold season. They’re like Uggs, but wayyy better.
Love Tod’s sneakers? Check out their sister brand Hogan. We’ve got the largest selection of Hogan footwear on the web for both women and men.
We’re working everyday to improve your experience, and are so happy you’ve discovered what makes italist better—the top brands, hard to find items and unique discoveries, all at amazing prices!
