Special Projects

Prada presents Prada Mode Shanghai, the fifth iteration of Prada Mode, a traveling social club with a focus on contemporary culture that provides members a unique art experience along with music, dining, and conversations. Past Prada Modes have augmented and extended significant cultural events in various cities worldwide, in partnership with prominent artists, academics, and cultural figures.

From 31 August to 1 September 2020, Prada Mode Shanghai will take over Prada Rong Zhai, the historic villa in the heart of Shanghai. 

Renowned director, producer, and writer Jia Zhang-Ke will transform the space into MIÀN, a site-specific intervention inspired by the director’s cinematic work.

MIÀN, in collaboration with Prada Mode Shanghai, will invite guests to explore some of the Chinese word’s many meanings. The intervention will be divided into three chapters that together “reflect the diverse faces of the world...to present human dignity which is called ‘tǐ miàn’ in Chinese.”
