Prada at the Place Beauvau
Prada just announced its' opening of a five month temporary shop at Place Beauvau in Paris which is inspired by French poet Apollinaire. The designer, Robert Baciocchi, uses references to Mirabeau bridge in his decor, the inspiration for one of Apollinaire's most well known poems. The carpeting and sofas are done in lilac mixed with modern bronze and metal display cases. The floor is chequered in black and white, modeled after the original Milanese Prada store from 1913. A magnificent combination of both beautiful prose and soft colored and modern decor. Hopefully the store will remain at this location longer.
