Miuccia Prada &
Miuccia Prada and Damien Hirst team up for the Prada Oasis
and Damien Hirst’s Pharmacy Juice Bar project, born in
collaboration with Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint
Hamad Al-Thani, Chairman of the Qatar Museums Authority.
Providing the perfect setting to Prada Oasis and Damien Hirst’s
Pharmacy Juice Bar,which debuted last Wednesday 9th and
Thursday 10th,is the desert on the northern side of Doha.
Damien Hirst’s Pharmacy Juice Bar is a reinterpretation
with an Arab spin of the Pharmacy Restaurant project, the venue
designed by the artist in London, in 1998. The same inspiration
lies behind Prada Oasis. For the occasion the Prada store has
been harmonized to the splendid Arab landscape.And,while
still in line with the aesthetics typical of the fashion house’s
boutiques, it was installed inside a traditional bayat shaar
the tents in sheep wool and velvet cushioning.Inside there is
Entomology, a limited edition collection of bags designed
by Miuccia Prada and Damien Hirst. Available in only 20
pieces (already sold as part of a charity auction in support of ROTA),
the bags look like small treasure cases in plexiglass with insects.
