Large ivory-white and green striped columns mark the entrance to the facility and give way to a stylized rainforest explosion, with hundreds of Prada hats of different colors, designs and materials sprouting like leaves and flowers on green metal trunks and branches. The floors echo the pattern on the walls, while a suspended illuminated Prada logo dominates the space.
