Prada Shop in the Middle of the Desert

The last thing someone would expect to see in the Texas Desert is a luxury boutique, right? Well that’s what German artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset were thinking when they decided to build their Prada masterpiece near the town of Marfa. What looks like a small and elegant Prada shoe-store is actually just an art project, the shoes on display are real Prada creations but there is no door to this shop, so no, you can’t buy any of them.

Miuccia Prada allowed the artists to use her brand for their art project and even picked out the shoes that are now on display. So if you’re ever in Marfa, Texas and you see the Prada boutique, just admire it from the outside, don’t force the door.
