Italian luxury brand Prada has revealed renderings of its 8,200 square foot Vancouver flagship, which opens on March 11. The impressive new store will occupy the southeast corner of Alberni Street and Thurlow Street (1098 Alberni Street) in the city’s ‘Luxury Zone’, and was designed by Studio Baciocchi, Italian-registered architect. 

The store will feature two retail selling levels. Sources say that the ground floor (which will have two entrances) will feature leather goods, bags, women’s shoes and women’s travel collection, and that the second floor will feature men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, men’s shoes, and men’s travel collection. 

The store will feature marble black-and-white chequered flooring (not unlike Bloomingdale’s). It will also feature Verner Panton-designed Clover Leaf sofas and crystal display counters, according to Prada. The store’s second-level men’s department will feature ostrich leather sofas as well as ebony flooring and walls, as well as metal and crystal display units.
