Those who've already been to Milan, will definitely know... but if you go to Milan for the first time... let me tell you: 10 Corso Como is the place to be!
10 Corso Como started off as a gallery in 1990 and is now a modern day 'department store'. The store by Carla Sozzani (sister of Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia) sells everything you'll ever want.... from clothes to shoes, hats, fashion jewelry, bags.... from CDs (they have their own compilations) to books, beauty products, perfumes, tableware and on and on. Oh and what about those lovely scented candles by Diptyque, Astier de Villatte and L'Artisan parfumeur...?!
Brands include Prada, Martin Margiela, Roger Vivier, Comme des Garcons, Marni, Paul Smith, Lacoste, Borsalino, Freitag, Timberland (the famous boat shoes) and Fornasetti. But actually there's just too much to mention...
I could easily spend a whole day here! Especially in the book department or in the rooftop garden. But also in the café and restaurant, since the whole fashion scene comes here, as well as travelers 'in the know'. It's all about 'seeing and be seen'!
Before you leave, don't forget to buy one of those 10 Corso Como CDs. It will make you think back and smile every time you listen to it.
