Prada in Miami – Opening a store in Miami’s prestigious Design District, Prada enlisted architect Roberto Baciocchi to design the 360 square meter store which houses the women’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories and footwear collections. This marks Prada’s 33rd store in the United States.
The store features light carpeted floors and round cornered rooms, with walls covered by the classic pale green curtain, within which there are display niches framed in polished steel. Located near the entrance, the footwear area is highlighted by precious round crystal tables, while the area dedicated to accessories, eyewear and small leather goods is furnished with crystal and steel counters with coloured displays.
The ready-to-wear area houses a display system of light, transparent panels, sided with special shaped tables. The furnishing is completed by supple green velvet “Clover Leaf” sofas, designed by Verner Panton and exclusively reproduced for Prada.
“This store opening strengthens Prada Group’s presence in North America”, commented Stefano Cantino, Prada Group Communications and External Relations Director. “With the Miami boutique Prada now has a total of 33 stores in the United States, consolidating the Group’s development strategy which foresees the opening of approximately 80 directly operated stores per year in all key markets”.
