BARCELONA — Miu Miu has inaugurated its first store here, a 4,305-square-foot unit at the corner of Paseo de Gracia and Consell de Cent.
The two-level unit carries the full range of women’s ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, small leather goods and sunglasses. Designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, the store features gold-spiked pistachio silk brocade wall coverings and matching drapes; floor-to-ceiling mirrored columns and display cases and a black mottled marble staircase and flooring.
