Since the opening of the new “White Tower” – as we call it! – at the Fondazione Prada in Milan I’ve been trying to organize a visit with some friends, but due to the difficult timetable for us it took a while before we finally managed, less than a month ago!
Although I was not extremely impressed by the permanent exhibitions (most of them I have seen already during previous visits at the Fondazione, some floors I really didn’t like and I still prefer the permanent exhibits of the Golden Tower), I was totally amazed by the architecture and the view from this new building.
The visit starts with a beautiful lift ride (in a huge pink lift with an incredible view of Milan) until the last floor of the Tower: from there you can walk all the way down passing by different exhibitions at each floor (including the beautiful Torre Restaurant). Some floors are worth the visit and I enjoyed a few artists and the huge windows from which you can really “feel” and not only see this ever changing town.
After the visit we couldn’t help having a walk in the internal open spaces of the Fondazione and an aperitivo in our favorite Bar Luce designed by Wes Anderson.
I wore Heka Couture purple shantung culottes, with & Other Stories tee and sabots and Fulani earrings by Africaialha.
