Prada opening at 6 Faubourg Saint-Honore PARIS! Xx

 Prada opened its historic store at 6 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris 
on 24 January, newly extended and designed by
 by Architect Roberto Baciocchi.  
It looks like an early 19th century Palace in the heart of Paris.

The building's façade looks like the original Prada store 
in Milan's Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

we completely love Shala's Blog! Xx

The sofas are green velvet and designed by Verner Panton 
exclusively for Prada.

The store is on three levels. 
 The women's ready-to-wear collection is in the basement 
where the walls are totally covered in green silk curtains.  
The ground floor which is an impressive marble and mirrors gallery 
that opens onto different areas houses the men's and women's accessories, 
leather goods and footwear collections. 

The first floor has the menswear ready-to-wear.
The staircases are black marble.

The second floor houses an elegant and exclusive private apartment that 
faces on Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, 
entirely reserved to Prada's most special guests.

Surely one of the best places to stay in Paris! Xx

See below pictures at the opening of the shop.
