Prada Unveils Harlem Renaissance Inspired Stores In Milan
Right in time for Black History Month, two of Prada’s stores will be recast in the image of the Harlem Renaissance at the brand’s Via Montenapoleone men’s and women’s boutiques in Milan, Italy.
The project is a part of Prada’s “Iconoclast” series originally launched in 2009 where fashion heavyweights such as Alex White, Olivier Rizzo, Carine Roitfeld and Katie Grand have reimagined Prada boutiques in the four fashion capitals: New York, London, Paris and Milan.
This time around, Prada has tapped Edward Enninful, W Magazine’s Style & Fashion Director, to “share his vision” in outfitting the store with a 1920s cool that features a Harlem Renaissance motif.
“The event is meant as a celebration of Miuccia Prada’s incredible work. Hopefully people will leave the event with a smile on their face,” Enninful told Style.com. “It is a very joyful moment, and I hope that people will be inspired by the men’s and women’s collections, the installations in each store, and the culturally inclusive direction of this moment in the Iconoclasts series.”
