Prada has opened up another store, this time in Paris, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. With the mere mention of the name Prada, could you really expect anything less? The shop is two floors of lovely, and just like the city it inhabits, it’s whimsical, plush and classic.
Roberto Baciocchi designed the 570 sqm shopping emporium that will be awaiting anxious clients in February 2010. Its abstract graphics and illusions allow you to see Paris’s first bridge, the Mirabeau Bridge, which was immortalized by a popular poem written by Guillaume Apollinaire. The interior is decorated with luxurious lilac carpeting and lavished couches. It also revisits Prada’s première1913 store by recreating the checkered marble floors, as well as the bronzed and metal glass displays and mirrors.
The store will retail Prada’s women’s (sorry gents) ready-to-wear line, bags, accessories and of course, luxe footwear. If you happen to be in this particular fashion capital before February, take in Paris in an illusory manner; stop by Prada’s temporary store at place Beauvau 92, while taking in all the other wonders the city has to offer.
