September is a busy month in the fashion world because of the four major international Fashion Weeks, taking place in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
For this reason the category Around the world will be special during this period, suggesting attractions, shops and restaurants in the world’s fashion capitals.
Today I will talk about the Prada Foundation. By its name alone you might imagine that it is a fashion museum, like the stunning Armani Silos (already discussed about it here), but in fact its a major center of contemporary art, wich exhibits Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertelli’s own collection, mostly stored in deposits, as well as temporary exhibitions.
The location for the project, which was designed by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas Office (OMA), is already a work of art by itself. Set in an old of 19,000 square meter distillery in southern Milan, Fondazione Prada is a complex that combines art, architecture and film.
In addition, the area has a super charming bar called Bar Luce (light in Italian), designed by film director Wes Anderson, who was inspired by 1950’s Milan. By itself this is already a must see.
The place is truly amazing, like all Miuccia touches (I confess I’m a fan)! Obligatory visit for all art, fashion, film, architecture lovers ,
It is open every day of the week except Tuesday. The ticket costs 10 euros.
