Prada in Marfa


After reading the following from an article of
“must sees” in America on
MSNBC I remembered why Marfa sounded familiar to me, it is where the movie “Giant” was filmed”.

America’s hidden travel gems – the West Texas desert seems an unlikely home for high fashion. But along a desolate stretch of U.S. Highway 90 near Marfa, Texas, travelers can stop at a Prada boutique. Unfortunately for shopaholics, the doors of “Marfa Prada” are sealed — it’s not a functioning store, but a permanent art installation…

the article doesn’t mention the bullet holes in the installation courtesy of local irate cowboys.
