Here’s where to get your style fix.

Delfina Delettrez: Though she hails from a first family of Roman design (her mother is Silvia Venturini Fendi), jeweler Delfina Delettrez’s creations are anything but traditional: golden bees float in resin bubbles on a stunning choker; brown diamonds and pearls are piled into cube-shaped casings atop a square ring.

Wonderfool: Proving yet again that Italians still have the lock on consummately cool men’s style, this hybrid of boutique, barbershop, and spa offers rigorous treatments and gorgeous guys’ stuff, from exclusive swim trunks by Orlebar Brown to unisex jewelry designs by Natsuko Toyofuku.

Saddlers Union: This top-flight leather-goods maker—decades ago a stalwart of the Via Condotti—was resuscitated by a young PR exec with a nostalgia for finely crafted bags and totes. The shop displays them as well as the briefcases and signature drawstring bucket bags that made the brand in the 1950’s.

Laura Tonatto Profumi Italiani: Rare and adventurous fragrances are the Turinese perfumer’s stock-in-trade. At the late-19th-century apothecary counter in the showroom, specialists sell bespoke concoctions; in the back room, interactive displays educate visitors, who experience scent in the context of music, cinema, and fine art.

Patrizia Pieroni: One of the first presences on Via del Governo Vecchio, where her shop, Arsenale, became a cult favorite, Pieroni now presides over a slick atelier specializing in knits and unstructured dresses in poplin, lace, and linen.
