Prada strengthens its presence in Sanya, China


Prada opens its second store in Sanya, China, inside the prestigious ‘Sanya Haitang Bay CDF International Shopping Mall’, in the Haitang Bay district. The space, designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, covers a total area of approximately 420 square metres on a single level and houses the women’s and men’s ready to wear, leather goods, accessories and footwear collections. The façade inside the mall is clad in black Marquinia marble and embellished with slim polished steel profiles, highlighting the large entrances, windows, light boxes and display windows. The first entrance, defined by the signature black-and-white marble chequered flooring, leads to a space where the women’s leather goods and accessories collections are displayed. The area is characterised by green fabric-clad walls with cut-in alcoves recalling Prada’s iconic display niches, an element defining all the store spaces dedicated to the women’s collections. Polished steel display counters with drawers covered in coloured saffiano leather complete the furnishing. The women’s footwear collection is presented in niches with polished steel profiles outlining the walls’ curved surface; green velvet sofas define the space. The women’s ready-to-wear collection is displayed in an area with transparent Perspex units enhancing the elegant atmosphere. The entrance to the area dedicated to men opens up on a space characterised by Saint Laurent marble floorboards and ebony-clad walls with precious polished steel niches hosting the men’s leather goods and accessories collections. The area dedicated to ready-to-wear and footwear is characterised by ebony floorboards and walls, dark brown carpeting and cotto-coloured leather sofas. Polished steel display cases and counters with drawers covered in coloured saffiano leather enrich the space.
