Now open at Ayala The 30th
ICYMI, Corso Como88 opened its first retail store at Ayala The 30th. Why is that good news, you ask? If you’ve shopped your favorite designer brands through personal shoppers that live on Instagram and endured the two-week, sometimes one-month wait, then Corso Como88 is a godsend. Bringing luxury goods from Italy and the rest of Europe closer to Filipino shoppers, the collective opened last October 15 via an event, themed Italian Night Out with cocktails care of Aperol Spritz.
Corso Como88 is the official distributor of Buti Pelleteria in the Philippines and carries many designer brands such as Valentino, Etro, Emilio Pucci, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gianni Chiarini, GgDB, Cuoieria Fiorentina and Avenue 67 Milan. Other heritage and contemporary brands have also found a home in the multi-brand store, including Polène, Goyard, Delvaux, See by Chloé, Demellier, Moreau, Givenchy, Golden Goose, Hermès, Karl Lagerfeld, Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, Salvatore Ferragamo and Tod’s.
Saint Laurent, Goyard, Valentino are just some of the brands on display
Should you not find the brand or designer piece you like, Corso Como88 can source it for you. That’s how the business started anyway, with friends of owners Imelda Menguito and Valter Sciandra requesting for them to source and shop for luxury items since both are based in Milan. Founded under its parent company, Infinity Exports SRL, Corso Como88 has since grown and made a name for itself. They’ve become a go-to for fashion fiends, guaranteeing the best prices given fewer intermediary costs.
So come by and peep what Corso Como88 has in store for you, from Bottega Veneta’s ubiquitous Jodie bag to the crowd-favorite Polène Number One. Did we mention? Guests are welcome to the plush back room closet to check out more, well, bags and other small leather goods while enjoying a drink and sweet treats.
So, see you there?
Corso Como88 is located at UGF Ayala Malls the 30th, Meralco Ave. Ortigas Center, Pasig. Follow them on Instagram via @CorsoComo88.
