products

women's and men's designer clothes, new but mostly of old collections... prada, miu miu, gucci, helmut lang, jil sander, guess, vestium officina, etc etc etc. changes all the time.

clientele

drag queens looking for prada mules in uncommon sizes to show off at club hollywood, old snobbish but fashionable ladies from milan's chic-er neigbourhoods. the more money they have the harder can they resist a bargain with that precious designer label.

service

it's too crowded and hysterical for employees to get nasty. unfortunately no bags...sigh. and you have to put your belongings in a locker at the entrance..high school terror..

interior

just one gooood thing, since you're probably gonna spend hours in here: they have a toilet in the courtyard. for the rest, it looks like a big garage sale, which makes it all the more exciting

ambience

>> tense: everybody's going for the first prize <<

g-r-e-a-t bargains! salvagente is a not-so-secret-anymore stock outlet store. you need to be very patient and confident that, yes, it is worth going through 15 bulging racks of clothes before you find those perfect helmut lang jeans. check the price tag and you'll know why you went through that hell. be prepared to fight with customers over miu miu bags.
