If you’ve ever dreamt of being on a Wes Anderson film set (like, all day long), now is your chance. Sip coffee amongst his signature pastels (personally chosen by Wes), listen to the jukebox wailing out tunes that would appear on his soundtracks and play the part of a Royal Tenenbaum in this fabulously kitsch new bar in Milan…
The Italian luxury brand Prada, are huge fans of the quirky film director, having worked with him on many of their mini-movie advertisements, and so its no surprise they approached Anderson to design the café/ bar at their brand new art and culture complex, Fondazione Prada.
Spy a Steve Zissou pinball machine, retro formica tables and an old-fashioned candy bar; Bar Luce is every bit a Wes Anderson movie, set in the 1950s.
The Fondazione Prada is now open, along with Bar Luce.
