Located on shopping thoroughfare Calle Goya, around the corner from Prada’s women’s store, which opened in April, the new men’s shop carries ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories.

Designed by Italian architect Roberto Baciocchi, the 1,240-square-foot store features ebony paneling and parquet with beige carpeting and chrome and glass shelving units.

Prada Group, which includes Prada, Church’s, Car Shoe and Miu Miu, counts 238 stores worldwide, a spokeswoman said.
