Prada’s recently opened store on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi and housed in a 19th-century former palace, is both grand and glamorous. The interiors of the store’s three storeys were carefully fashioned using Prada’s signature styles from its existing boutiques and the entire Prada collection is on offer here. The launch, attended by fashion noteworthies such as Carine Roitfeld and Anna Dello Russo, was a glittering evening which showcased the brand’s prestigious accessory and luggage collection on the ground floor and included an exclusive view of the men’s and women’s spring/summer 2012 collections on the first floor. A successful party was guaranteed by Michelin-starred chef Alain Passard’s gourmet cuisine, a choice of fine wines, and DJ Frédéric Sanchez’s elegant music medley, which was tailored as meticulously as the garments on show.
