SAN FRANCISCO — More than a decade after Prada first began making plans to open a flagship in the City by the Bay, the Italian luxury fashion house is finally getting its wish.
An early 20th-century building at 201 Post Street, with a main entrance on Grant Avenue, will be home to a 5,650-square-foot Prada unit when it opens to the public on Wednesday. The 10 tall display windows on the first floor are framed in black and capped by Prada's signature chain logo, evoking the original Prada flagship in Milan, which opened in 1913 in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Also a nod to Prada's history are oversize steamer trunks showcasing products, such as the $15,000 to $20,000 collection of pergamena crocodile hatboxes and suitcases. The store's walls are covered in signature pale green Prada linen.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
