  • Quote:"The Prada Marfa Store
    Marfa, TX

    It may be hard to find a gas station on this empty stretch of U.S. 90, but at least there’s a store with high-end accessories: 20 left-foot shoes and six purses, to be exact, visible through the store's front windows. Located 150 miles southwest of El Paso, the Prada store, which “opened” in 2005, with the blessing of Miuccia Prada herself, is the creation of Berlin artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset. Fashionistas might want to save themselves the trip, though: the door is permanently locked, and the only sign of life is a growing population of moths.
