10 CORSO COMO
Gallerist, publisher and former fashion editor Carla Sozzani conceived 10 Corso Como in 1990 as a virtual narrative of a magazine layout. Having abandoned all accepted retail practices, 10 Corso Como promotes art, fashion and design through a succession of spaces and events that reflect lifestyle over object acquisition.
10 Corso Como became the nexus of a global network of cultures and exchanges that galvanized marketing through the 1990's and has set the vocabulary for international style into the 21st Century.
10 Corso Como and the iconic 10 Corso Como logos are designed by American artist Kris Ruhs.
Headquartered in Milan, Italy, 10 Corso Como opened in Tokyo in 2002, in collaboration with Comme des Garçons. In 2008 10 Corso Como has joined with Samsung Group to open 10 Corso Como in the capital city of Seoul.
