Located in the trendy Gangnam district in southern Seoul, 10 Corso Como is the brainchild of Italian gallerist and publisher Carla Sozzani. Part art and design gallery, part bookshop, part fashion store, and part something else, the shop was conceived by Sozzani—a former fashion editor—as a virtual narrative of a magazine layout. Think of it as walking through a copy of Vogue. As with Milan’s and Tokyo’s 10 Corso Como locations, much of the interior was designed by American graphic artist Kris Ruhs, a long-time associate of Sozzani.
10 Corso Como’s café offers a variety of sumptuous Italian eats, with wonderful desserts, too.
In addition to men’s and women’ fashions and accessories, 10 Corso Como also has a bookshop selling mostly art and photography books. Well worth checking out.
