10 Corso Como
Italian magazine editor, gallerist and publisher—not to mention the woman who invented the fashion “concept store” in 1990 Milan—Carla Sozzani has brought her high-concept shopping and dining establishment to Lower Manhattan’s Seaport District. Sozzani’s vision for what works in today’s retail market is perfectly encapsulated through the curation of fashion—Jil Sander, Prada, Balenciaga, Off-White—music, design, cuisine, and culture you’ll find within the store. But above all, art takes center stage in the 13,000-square foot space, as in all the other Corso Como stores, with photography and fine art exhibitions that feature work from some of contemporary art’s greatest talents. This place oozes eccentric sophistication (the best kind, if you ask us) and Italy-meets-New York flair.
