Reality Island

Miuccia Prada and architect Roberto Baciocchi are at it again, opening another Miu Miu store papered in green-gold damask, this time in Honolulu, Hawaii (1450 Ala Moana Blvd).

Guests are asked to dress in metallics, which they can get at the Metal Shop—a pop-up store-within-a-store at Tribeca Issey Miyake selling the likes of Michael Kors, Puma and Patrick Ervell—through the day of the event on November 15. All of which is another way of saying the metallic trend is not over.
