An independent soul who loves to veer off the beaten path, Ferhat Nazri-Aziz is accustomed to flying solo. And when it comes to shopping, the well-connected PR consultant has a one-track mind. “I’m a focused shopper—when I head to a place, I know exactly what I want and what I need,” says Ferhat. Hence his love for Italy, renowned for its leather goods since time immemorial. “From bags to shoes and gloves, their workmanship is brilliant,” gushes Ferhat. Fellow fans of fine craftsmanship should add McArthurGlen’s centres in Barberino, Castel Romano, La Reggia, Noventa and Serravalle to their next travel itinerary!

"My children are all grown up and lead their own lives, so now is the time for me to enjoy myself. I normally travel with a group of girls,” says Adelina Tan, a fashionable face in society. Though not a shopaholic per se, she has been known to act on a whim. “I like to try before buying, so online shopping is a no-no for me. And when I do see something special in the store, I will buy two, especially shoes!” she laughs. “European cobblers are among the best in the world, and at outlets such as McArthurGlen, you can pick and choose from a plethora of brands."
