Prada Pumps Out A Duo Of International Outposts
(NEW YORK) Those pros over at Prada must be busy: the Italian design house pumped out two boutique openings in one week. On August 28th, Nanning, China welcomed its first ever Prada shop. The fresh piece of property housing Miuccia's creations was designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi. The location's striking, horizontal stretch of vertical steel paneling pays tribute to Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlo Cruz-Diez, a kingpin of the kinetic art movement. Thus, the expansive façade has a movement-filled effect, both in daylight and at nuit. In terms of interiors, the Nanning location is filled with pale green accents and tons of shiny marble. The store features Prada wares for both ladies and hommes.
Today, Prada opened a a Stockholm shop to satiate the Swedes' appetite for all things Miuccia-made. The interior of the Swedish store is quite similar to its Chinese counterpart, with the same color scheme and marble choices. The one identical, identifying feature that's kept consistent at these brand new Prada stores? The tell-tale black and white checkered marble floors. Shoppers, whip out those passports!
