Our list of the best luxury shopping destinations and where to buy designer brands is perfect for planning your post-pandemic shopping trip.

New York

Once home to the entire US fashion industry, Manhattan’s streets play host to top luxury brands, independent boutiques and avant-garde designers that fuel the city’s status as a global fashion capital. Twice a year, the city is overrun by international fashion editors and buyers who flock here to see the runway shows.

Get a slice of the action and shop the runway looks at New York’s finest department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman. Search for eclectic pieces at Dover Street Market in Midtown or head downtown to visit the boutiques of designers like Balenciaga and New York’s own Marc Jacobs.

Los Angeles

The unrivaled glamour of Beverly Hills provides the perfect backdrop to shop the runway collections. The iconic Rodeo Drive, immortalized in film by Pretty Woman, is home to the biggest names in fashion and exceptional architecture.

Two Rodeo, the open-air shopping mall, houses designer accessory brands like Jimmy Choo and Porsche Design. Further down the drive, brands including Louis Vuitton and Prada have turned their stores into architectural retail experiences that delight just as much as the collections within their walls.

San Francisco

Catering to the billionaire entrepreneurs of Silicon Valley, San Francisco has become a top destination for luxury shopping on the west coast. Union Square is home to towering department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and household jewelry brands including Tiffany & Co.

Adjacent to Union Square, you can shop the latest runway collections from designer brands like Fendi and Valentino. San Francisco is also home to luxury resale business The RealReal. Stop by their store on the corner of Stockton and Post to browse their iconic collection of must-have pieces from seasons past.


Upscale Yorkville in Toronto is one of Canada’s top shopping destinations. Fashion houses including Chanel line the sidewalk of swanky Yorkville Avenue, catering to Canada’s chicest residents.

For more glitz and glam, head to adjacent Bloor Street and its dazzling department stores Holt Renfrew and Harry Rosen. You can browse designer clothing shops along Bloor Street from Yonge Street to Queen’s Park, taking in designer names like Gucci, Max Mara and Dior. Las Vegas
