THE BEST OF 2013: PRADA STORE OPENINGS




2013 is almost over (sorry), but V think it went pretty well, TBH. At least in terms of luxury economy, the world is doing one thing right: All year long we've been noticing a boom in beautiful store openings, and one design house was the front runner in proliferation. Fashion titan Prada has opened—count them—32 new stores around the world in 2013. Considering the 2nd Prada store opened in 1983 and there are now over 300 worldwide, this number is massive. It means, in case you'd rather not do the math, that for the past 30 years, the Prada Group has had to open an average of 10 stores per year, and that this year, their output was triple that.

Take a look through our slideshow of stores from Abu Dhabi to São Paolo—and this doesn't even include Miu Miu! The newest spaces are designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, many paying tribute to artists the renowned designer admires. For example, the  work of Venezuelan-born Carlos Cruz-Diez is an inspiration for the façade on Kazakhstan's 8,000-square-foot first-ever Prada store, which opened just yesterday (December 5th, 2013).

Here's the breakdown:
