PRADA opened the new flagship store in San Francisco yesterday at 201 Post Street in Union Square area, is the brand's 11th U.S. stores. The opening party included who's who of San Francisco high society such as Mayor Gavin Newsom, Vanessa Getty and former Mayor Willie Brown; with the food catered by Chef Thomas Keller of French Laundry and Per Se. The store was a decade in the making. Designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, the 5,650-square-foot space replaces the brand's previous women's-only boutique on Geary Street. It is stocked with menswear, womenwear, custom tailored suits and accessories. The store currently offers pieces from the recent Cruise collection, giving those in the Bay Area first dibs on the season's coveted envelope clutches. SOURCE
Updated: I stopped by the store yesterday and nothing excited me. The store is nice but not like the one in L.A. and NYC.
