Here’s a tempting excuse to arrive at Charles de Gaulle airport with plenty of time to spare before your next flight. Prada’s latest launch is a standalone store inside Terminal 2 that is sure to satisfy any traveller’s pre-flight retail therapy needs.
The new 125-square-metre, single-level shop was designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi using the fine fabrics and furnishings that have become the signature of Prada stores, from the Marquinia black marble storefront framed by angled glass windows to the black and white chequered marble floor, pale green walls, polished steel finishes and Saffiano leather interiors.
The shop is dedicated to men’s and women’s leather goods, bags and accessories, including sunglasses, scarves, belts and key rings, and stocks Prada’s covetable autumn/winter 2012/13 handbag collection, which features quirky retro geometric prints, polished leather doctor’s bags, floral print leather satchels, tiny embellished minaudières and gemstone-adorned satin bags.
