Prada has opened its ninth store in Hong Kong, in the Plaza 2000 Building in Causeway Bay. The space, designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, covers 1,320 sq m and features both women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories and footwear collections over three floors.
The external façade pays tribute to French-Venezuelan artist Carlo Cruz-Diez, one of the leaders of the kinetic art movement. The large entrance, light boxes and windows are inserted into the lower part of the façade, which is clad in black marble and crowned by a bronze and steel-coloured aluminium structure backlit to create a unique kinetic effect both day and night. Overall, the façade stands 15 m tall and stretches 45 m in length on both sides of the building, which is located on the corner of Russell Street and Canal Road East.
