Prada for fashion


Milan
Relating to my previous post (see below) Prada for Art Prada is obviously not just a Foundation for contemporary art but it is mostly known as a luxury fashion label.
Above is an image of the original store in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan with a sign saying: "Prada Brothers' luggage". Now a five-month temporary concept store will open in Paris at Place Beauvau. Architect Roberto Baciocchi is recreating part of the original Milanese store, as in the black and white marble floor and in the use of bronzed metal to link the present with the past.

This is a very interesting entry - I didn't know that Prada had these evolution and all this story behind.

Well, plus the concept of the store is amazing!
