10 Corso Como reopens in Tokyo

10 Corso Como reopens in Tokyo

Italian high-end retailer 10 Corso Como has reopened in Japan with a new partnership. Opening its doors, the Tokyo concepts – two in total – have bowed inside the Sogo-Seibu department store.

The celebrated Milanese concept store, founded in 1990 by Carla Sozzani, opened back in 2002 its first Tokyo flagship store named  “10 Corso Como/Comme des Garçons”, which closed its doors several years ago.

The two new points of sale cover some 30 square metres and sit inside the department store’s Seibu Ikebukuro and Seibu Shibuya locations.

10 Corso Como will add two ephemeral corners later this month in Tokyo, in Seibu Shibuya and Seibu Yokohama, according to a store announcement.

10 Corso Como now has three dedicated stores outside Milan, two in Seoul, one in Shanghai and a coffee shop in Beijing – all opened in partnership with local companies.

In addition, a 1,200 square-metre-department store is set to open in New York in July 2018.

The Milan-based company signed an agreement with the Howard Hughes Corporation, which is in the process of revitalizing Seaport District, a commercial area located on the south side of Manhattan on the East River in the historic port of New York.
