Il corso d’ opera dei concept stores è in continuo mutamento. In Italia solo Carla Sozzani fu così lungimirante da aprire, 11 anni orsono, “10 Corso Como”, creando un clima del tutto inedito in tempi non sospetti. In seguito lo spazio per la vendita di abbigliamento concepito come interazione tra moda e design è stato ripreso da altri, tra i quali spiccano Piombo e Paul Smith. In quest’ ottica evolutiva, Officina Slowear, in collaborazione con Carlo Donati, si contraddistingue per uno stile caldo e polifunzionale. Donati si è liberamente ispirato alle linee di design di Jean Prouvé e ha usato stampe wallpaper dal gusto più seventies.
