Inside Prada’s 24 H Museum
Last night, Prada and artist Francesco Vezzoli erected the ultimate one-night-only spectacle: an entire museum, curated and designed by Vezzoli, open for only 24 hours. With the help of Rem Koolhaas’ AMO (Koolhaas is a longtime Prada collaborator), Vezzoli erected “sculptures” (actually photos of statues mounted onto Perspex) and turned an assembly room into a cinema for the evening. Style.com’s Nicole Phelps recently spoke with Vezzoli about the project and his relationship with Miuccia Prada (“I think she has the copyright on irony for fashion,” he said). And Tim Blanks visited the vernissage dinner—alongside the likes of Salma Hayek, Catherine Deneuve, Diane Kruger, and Riccardo Tisci—last night, where a feast was served on Miuccia’s own china.
