    Last night, during its fall '13 menswear show in Milan, Prada unveiled the "Ideal House." Okay, so technically, you can't buy new digs from Prada. But, if you could, your new home might look like this insanely cool runway — the Italian luxury brand inverted the traditional catwalk configuration and built a "house" around the audience.

Models, unfortunately, not included.
