Earlier this year, Prada kicked off fashion season with “Hyper Leaves,” a bright neon installation characterized by verdant motifs of wood and macro leaves like Monstera, Fig, Fern, and Alocasia, housed in a neon gazebo designed by Rem Koolhaas and AMO, the forward-thinking arm of Koolhaas' Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). It's another nice tie-in too Koolhaas and AMO's current country-themed exhibit at the Guggeenheim.
Last week, the installation opened up in Prada's SoHo flagship store, following a reveal in its Beverly Hills store and another at their Miami Design District location, opening this weekend. The installation also houses several exclusive items that are only available in-store. Which means if you want one, you're going to have to make the trek.
For women, exclusives include tie-dye knitwear, bucket bags, basket bags, and embroidered skirts. The men's collection exclusives include psychedelic printed poplin bowling shirts, eye-catching colorblocked nylon outerwear, and chunky-soled sneakers. Of course, Prada's signature nylon accessories like pouches, digital cases, and bucket hats pretty much appeal to everyone, and there are several store-exclusive colors too.
Take a look at a few of the Prada Hyper Leaves exclusives below. They're currently available at Prada's Beverly Hills and SoHo NYC flagship stores, and will release in the Miami Design District store on February 29.
