10 Corso Como
What’s the best store (in person or online) to shop in? I can’t really afford much there, but 10 Corso Como in Milan is an interesting and unique experience. You can have drinks outside and the people watching is fantastic. – Rachel Lew
10 Corso Como is an art gallery, clothing shop, bookstore, hotel, restaurant, bar and café with locations in Milan, Seoul, Shanghai and Beijing. Founded by Italian publisher Carla Sozzani in 1991, 10 Corso Como is meant to be a multifaceted design complex and takes its name from its flagship location in Milan. Every room in the Milan gallery is different, and each one its own art installation. Retro chairs and ’80s accents intermix with shimmering chandeliers and art deco influences to make 10 Corso Como seem simultaneously vintage and innovative. Its clothing lines combine modern materials with retro designs, including accessories like a tassel belt made from python. 10 Corso Como has previously collaborated with many renowned clothiers, including Fabrizio Corveddu and Dan Amzallag. It consistently showcases the work of various cutting-edge designers and has featured the latest styles from Azzedine Alaïa, Marit Ilison, Max Mara, Xiao Li and many more. The shop also sells accessories with delightfully imaginative graphics, and each item can cost anywhere between $20-$2,500. After shopping, order some cocktails and hang out at 10 Corso Como’s courtyard café, which features a jewelbox-like terrace teeming with lush greenery. Go for a refreshing mimosa or try out a Japanese julep, an especially invigorating drink made with mint, sugar, lime and sake. There’s a reason this place is so popular with discerning art connoisseurs and image-conscious hipsters alike, so definitely make a point of stopping by on your next trip to Milan.
