10 Corso Como
Former fashion editor and publisher Carla Sozzani conceived 10 Corso Como as a virtual narrative. Using the gallery and bookshop as its core, Sozzani has structured a living magazine where editorial choices in food and fashion, music and art and lifestyle and design are constantly made by the visitor and customer as they engage across so many arenas of interest. People both in and beyond the art and fashion scene began to see in this concept something quite new and radical for retail and even more for presenting art in the same breath as style. The Italian sociologist Francesco Morace in 1991 coined for 10 Corso Como the term that would later become a standard marketing idea "concept shop". A way to join culture and commerce, 10 Corso Como multifunctional philosophy allows to present a unique blend of art, music, design, cuisine and culture from around the world to the world.

Born in Alghero, Sardinia. The island has always deeply influenced his aesthetic. His fashion debut was the result of a lucky chance. In 1987 a fashion house in Rome asked him to design a prêt-à-porter collection. Their invitation was due to his dual baggage of skills: cultural Marras has always involved himself in every form of artistic/creative expression and technical. The latter is based on his know-how of materials and forms which he developed within his familys business of a number of shops they owned in Alghero. This combination of intellectual input and practical experience provided him with solid foundations on which to build his first, eponymous collection. In 1996 he was asked to present an haute couture show in Rome. The key elements of his style were already clear to see: the focus on craft techniques; Sardinia as a source of inspiration that is never reduced to folkloristic kitsch; the recurring theme of the ligazzio rubio (which in the Sardinian language means a red thread), which becomes a fully-fledged hallmark of his style. He debuts with his prêt-à-porter in March 1999 in Milan. The collection has all the elements of his poetics. Theres always a theme, red threads. Then the taste for elegant contrasts: burn marks on luxury fabrics, distressed gauzes and sumptuous embroidery, visible seams and brocades together with a perception of modernity, richly decorative elements on vintage clothes, mixtures of rich and poor, male and female, decoration and structure, form and function. In parallel with the collections, he continues to experiment through his Laboratorio and Serie Limitata ranges: not quite prêt-à-porter, not quite couture. Clothes made by hand in the Alghero designers big homestudioworkshop. Clothes that retain the allure of authenticity because only a few pieces exist and, at the same time, they may serve as the starting point for models included in the first line. In 2003 LVMH, the French luxury goods group, invites him to be the artistic director of the Kenzo fashion house, which will be Antonios travel companion for eight years, until 2011.The second line IM ISOLA MARRAS is launched in May 2007, debuting with the 2008-2009 autumn/winter season. Not exactly a second line, rather a more accessible, decoded Marras world. Antonio establishes his headquarters in Milan. In all these years Marras made a fundamental choice, both sentimental and artistic: he never gives up living where he was born. From Alghero he travels to Milan and Paris, but it is always to Alghero that he returns in pursuit of creativity, inspiration and material for his expressive universe. His work as a stylist takes him all over the world, but he persists in living on Sardinia, aware as he is that the island gives him his energy. He lives in Alghero in a big home/workshop on a hill high over the sea. He shares his home with his family/tribe, who take an active part in his creative work.
Lingerie line launched by Araks Yeramyan with the simple brief to make women feel beautiful, beginning with the most intimate of layers, nothing else comes closer next to skin: its the very first thing a woman slips on in the morning, and the last to come off at night. Born out of a love for art, design and colour, Araks is for the modern intelligent woman who has an eye and appreciation for the finer details but is understated in her approach to style, preferring to follow her own instincts rather than the diktats of everyone else around her. This sense of ease and effortless style rings through the Araks collections, which are designed and produced in New York with the finest Italian fabrics. The line-up comprises an arresting interplay of barely-there sheer layers spliced with interludes of unexpected colour and textures; Araks is a curation of delicate pieces, so dreamy its like wearing nothing at all. Araks Yeramyan, a graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York and a former student of Central Saint Martins School in London has an innate understanding of design, painting, photography and silk screening a unique skill set she applies to every collection. After graduating with a degree in fashion design and completing an internship at Marc Jacobs, she joined the design team at J.Crew before launching her eponymous lingerie collection in 2000, followed by swimwear in 2013. Araks lives in New York City and takes inspiration from the vibrant, pulsating beauty that surrounds her. Relaunched for Resort 2014, Araks Swim is inspired by the same aesthetic and attention to color and fit that defines her lingerie collection. With its bold color palatte and streamlined silhouettes, the collection reflects the same concept of effortless beauty upon which all of her work is based. Launched in 2000, based on the principle of effortless beauty, Araks lingerie creates a holistic experience of beauty and confidence starting with the most intimate and personal layer. The collection is characterized by a focus on color and rigorous attention to detail with the goal of creating comfortable, everyday luxury cotton underwear for women.
