New York Magazine asked Miuccia Prada some questions. Here’s one:
Q. What is it about your brand that attracts people?
A. [Sighs] Yes, it’s difficult to answer. You have some customers who are customers because they understand when you do something clever. For others, the brand is just a brand. It’s just the name—who cares what you do. The two exist together. And when you do things now, you have to do things that people like instantly, so it connects. So you can have a more sophisticated customer and some other who gets the superficial impression. Personally, I’m much more interested in doing things that people all over the world are interested in, instead of only a few sophisticated things for a small group.
