TRAVEL DIARY: 10 CORSO COMO SHANGHAI

10 Corso Como is absolutely one of the places you shouldn't miss when you're in Shanghai. Whether you're a lover of art or fashion, this state-of-the-art shopping mecca certainly has something in store for you. From established covetable labels such as Comme des Garçons and Rick Owens to up-and-coming designers like Tigran Avestisyan and Christopher Raeburn, 10 Corso Como offers an eclectic mix of merchandise that will surely set you apart from the commoners. In addition to this, 10 Corso Como has an excellent selection of fashion and art books. There is also a nice cafe as well as a restaurant inside this massive concept store. For art lovers, make sure to check out their seasonal exhibitions.

So far I had the pleasure of visiting three boutiques from the Corso Como chain of concept stores including the first store in Milan and the second one in Seoul. All three have distinct architecture but generally have the same vibe. The Shanghai flagship is undeniably the most futuristic-looking among the three. I really enjoyed my visit to this store. I could literally spend an entire day here browsing from one section to the other. I felt like a little kid in an enormous candy store.

Below are some quick snaps I did while perusing this breathtakingly beautiful store.
