After a collaboration with OMA/Rem Koolhaas on the Prada stores in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, the first project by AQUILIALBERG ARCHITECTS in the fashion world marks the collaboration with designer Neil Barrett for which they have designed the sculptural backdrop of their AW-2010 fashion show in Milan. From 2011 AQUILIALBERG ARCHITECTS collaborate with fashion designer Philipp Plein, translating the brand philosophy into a new contemporary architectural language for his more than 50 stores and show-rooms worldwide.
