One of the key highlights of our trip to Italy was shopping, and Space definitely did not disappoint. We went during the low season, and thus escaped the heat, crowds and long lines. Jan - March is a good period to visit according to the salespersons we spoke to there.
One key tip for shoppers there - to make the best out of your time shopping, I suggest you rent a car (assuming you are travelling from Florence) so that you can cover both Space and The Mall in one day. It is only a short drive from Florence, and allows you to maximize your time there instead of waiting for busses / trains / taxis. Getting a taxi there seems to be a problem as we saw a long queue at the taxi stand (don't think there are many taxis as it is located in a small town). It was so easy just hopping on board our car and head to our next destination. Also, there was no need to lug the big shopping bags around.
There was a very good selection and prices were very attractive. It has a lot more Prada content than the outlet in The Mall, so for shopaholics, I suggest you visit both instead of one over the other.
We did not have any queues at all and completed our payment within 5 mins. I can imagine though that it must be crazy during the peak periods as there is a lot of preparation for long lines, so I'm glad we did not have to face them.
Overall, had a great time shopping there, well-worth it if you are a Prada fan!
