Don't miss Florence-based Santa Maria Novella apothecary for soaps and scents.
Once a hippie haven, this lively boulevard is a curious mix of high and low, with patisseries and designer boutiques sharing sidewalk space with food trucks and New Age shops. Arm yourself with a latte (made with organic milk!) from Intelligentsia (pictured) before stepping into the preppy-meets-edgy Steven Alan annex. Or drop by Firefly, a tastefully curated emporium of baby toys, architecture books and jewelry.
Don't miss afternoon tea on the sun-dappled patio at Jin Patisserie.
Bordering Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, this shopping strip is synonymous with celebs and the paparazzi who love them. It's a who's who of the fashion world, with designer boutiques such as Tory Burch (pictured) and Alice + Olivia, along with U.K.-based brand Reiss and Los Angeles mecca Kitson. It's practically the retail arm of celeb mags such as People and Us Weekly.
Don't miss the black-and-white gallerylike Chanel concept store.
