Prada Marfa

How many of you have heard of Prada Marfa
Have any of you been there? 
It's a permanently installed artistic sculpture in the shape of a {fake} Prada store, 
and it's located way in the middle of nowhere {aka Marfa}, Texas. 
And, I'm obsessed. 
Just look at these photos!





I know there's a famous photographer associated with some of the more well-known Prada Marfa pictures.
Do y'all know who it is?
I don't know which, if any, of the above can be attributed to him.
{these all came from where else, Pinterest}
My first exposure to it & still one of  my absolute favorites is the sign hanging in the Van der Woodsen home in Gossip Girl.


Would you incorporate a Prada Marfa sign in your home decor?
I would love to hear who's visited & who else wants to go!
Road trip!

have a fabulous day,
xx

I love this! I've been seeing it everywhere lately, but my favorite is also the one on Gossip Girl :) I would love to go see it, and would definitely hang this in my house! So simple but makes such a big statement, and it would go with anything!

This is my favorite post you have done yet! By the way, a few years ago some scenesters in Brooklyn were carrying around brown paper bags (like from a grocery store) that they had decorated with marker to look like Gucci and Louis Vuitton bags. Very clever way to show an underlining absurdity in how people put so much value on those logos!
