5 concept stores in Milan
1) Nonostante Marras
This concept store is located in a former workshop, which is tucked away in a flowery courtyard. A dreamlike space, which is also an art gallery, a meeting venue with antique sofas and furniture and large chandeliers. In the centre, you can find clothes made from special fabrics, surrounded by flowers, books and artworks.
2) Six Gallery
A new hidden space in a courtyard with a landscape architecture studio and a design studio with eclectic furniture from the early 20th century to the 1970s. A field of wheat hangs down from the ceiling. The bistro, the Sixième, has a few tables and a large cocktail bar.

4) Garage Italia
Opened by Lapo Elkann, the scion of the Agnelli dynasty, Garage Italia customises all means of transportation, from scooters to off-road vehicles, and even helicopters! It’s located in the former Agip Supercorte-maggiore gas station, known as the ‘spaceship’, which was commissioned by ENI’s founder Enrico Mattei. The building, which has been restored, has a cocktail bar and a restaurant.
5) Rossana Orlandi
Rossana Orlandi has established her creative space in a former tie factory. The original setting, wall furniture and stairs surround an infinite number of drawers. Recently the bistro opened here. She joined forces with one of Milan’s most popular restaurants, Il luogo di Aimo and Nadia (aimoenadia.com), for this project.
