A must any time I visit Milan is the concept store Corso Como 10. It’s a magical place, in the heart of Milan, with an extraordinary inner garden and a lovely terrace. The store has its own strong branding that has resulted in diverse collaborations with renowned designer brands. After a visit, you are immediately up to date with the latest lifestyle trends, including a nice selection of emerging fashion labels.

Brera Design District
The street Corso Como takes you to the Brera District. This authentic Milanese neighbourhood is populated with beautiful, authentic townhouses. In recent years you see more and more interior brands establishing their showrooms here. They like to open their showrooms during Milan Design Week to share what’s new. I LOVE IT!
