Prada Philippines re-opens expanded Makati boutique
Prada Philippines has reopened its high profile boutique in the Greenbelt Ayala Center in downtown Makati, Manila.
The expanded and renovated store inside the prestigious mall was designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, covers a total area of approximately 200 sqm on a single level. It houses women’s and men’s leather goods, accessories and footwear collections.
The high-impact external facade is composed of an interplay of light-boxes, completed by a backlit white canvas curtain enclosed in a crystal box. The internal facade echoes the motif of the exterior and features two large entrances and a series of display windows.
The first entrance, defined by the signature black-and-white marble chequered flooring – a legacy of Prada’s identity worldwide – opens up on an area dedicated to the women’s leather goods collections.
A portal leads to a second space, where the women’s footwear collections is displayed. The entire area devoted to women is characterised by green fabric- clad walls with cut-in polished steel and crystal display niches. Steel and crystal tables with coloured display shelves and green velvet sofas complete the furnishing.
The second entrance and the space dedicated to women both lead to a regularly-shaped area housing the men’s leather goods and footwear collections. Ebony floorboards and walls, crystal and polished steel display cases and chocolate brown carpeting define the space. Display counters with coloured saffiano leather detailing and light coloured leather sofas enhance the atmosphere.
