The walls, ceilings and velvet-upholstered furniture are delicately coloured in Prada’s signature green, while the floors are a homage to the black-and-white chequered floor of the historic Prada boutique in Milan.
Floral bas-reliefs on the walls evoke the brand’s flagship stores worldwide. While tableware is an exclusive collection that includes pale-blue Japanese porcelain with a double black line, inspired by an old Celadon pottery. This includes cups with lids, teapots, plates, and trays. Blown-glass crystal glassware with the Triangle series, featuring a signature Prada triangular pattern, is also available.
A wide selection of food and drink is available throughout the day, from breakfast to evening cocktails.
