The 545 sq m store in Villaggio Mall in the city of Doha features women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories and footwear collections.

The news comes after the luxury brand opened its first freestanding store in Japan, in the upscale Shinsaibashi district in Osaka during July.

Prada in June reported an 13.5% rise in first-quarter profit to €138.2 million (US$183.4 million), driven by growth in Asia and in the retail channel.
