    We know it sounds crazy, but some of us practically plan our vacations around shopping. We map out our tour routes based on which flagships we can pop into before seeing the (more historical) sights. We carve out whole days to wander from storied boutique to storied boutique (in our favorite flats, of course). We arrange our suitcases prior to departure knowing we'll need that extra space to accommodate new purchases. There’s something really special about stepping into our favorite brand's destination-only brick-and-mortar store — to not only better understand the mission of the label, but also to score the goods our friends back home definitely won't have.

    From coast to coast and around the globe, ahead are our favorite must-see-to-believe retail experiences from the designers who truly epitomize their cities' unique style. So, take our lead and set aside at least one precious afternoon on your next vacation to make the pilgrimage to these limited-location posts. Whether your travel plan includes a quick jaunt to Los Angeles or a week-long excursion to Tokyo, it will be well worth the airline miles — and the extra baggage fees.
