The Prada Marfa Store, TX

2 of 29

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 southeast 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. —Adam McCulloch
