"Prada Marfa" The loneliest Prada store in the world is also the place where I am most looking forward to shooting this Road Trip! This store stands alone in the empty Gobi Desert in Texas, looking like the end of the world. This is actually a work created by artists Elmgreen and Dragset in 2005 to express criticism of the luxury industry. At that time, Miuccia Prada also authorized the use of Prada's trademark, and personally selected the 2005 limited edition items. If you remember the Prada Marfa 1837 mi painting at the home of Gossip Girl Serena, it refers to the total distance of 1,837 miles from New York to the Prada Marfa store. In order to shoot the sunset, I specially waited here for more than 3 hours. I would like to thank my friends who waited with me on Christmas Eve. I know you are really boring. Tips: If there is a way or arrange to take pictures at dusk, the photos will be more beautiful. There is also a railway opposite, you can also take some pictures
Although Texas is off the beaten track, it is because of its toughness and roughness facing the desert that it has attracted the favor of countless artists. The most famous one is Prada Marfa. There is no other building in a radius of five hundred miles, just like a flower in the desert, blooming in the desert of Texas. This Prada boutique was built on Highway 90 in 2005 but never opened. Prada Marfa, which has experienced wind, sun, rain, vandalism and looting, still stands firmly there today. The first impression of this building was that when I saw Gossip Girl, the oversized Prada Marfa 1837MI art painting in Serena's house, I did not expect to see and touch the deity in person many years later. Let's talk about the small town of Marfa. I just said that it has attracted the favor of countless artists. That's right, the whole town can be called a modern art exhibition hall. The emptiness and coldness of Texas are in sharp contrast to the talent and passion of artists. Here are the coolest houses, the best interior design, the brightest colors and the most talented artists. This small town in the middle of the desert seems desolate and sparsely populated, but it is the most sparkling place. I really like the small town of Marfa. There are retro buildings and vintage cars everywhere, and you can see an art place just around the corner, but the trip is relatively hurried, and I couldn't calm down and feel the town. I suggest you give Marfa two or three days to experience the collision between history and art.
