Prada Prescription Eyeglasses Frames: High Style and Quality Construction
Based in Milan, Italy, Prada is known for the intellectualism and artfulness of its design aesthetic. Mario Prada began selling leather handbags, shoes, travel trunks, and waterproof garments in 1913. In 1979 Mario's granddaughter, Miuccia, assumed the business and expanded the company into the luxury segment. Since then, the luxury brand’s fashion-forward approach has been devoted to technological research, innovative design, and impeccable quality. Miuccia has become one of the world's leading authorities on style by consistently and accurately forecasting fashion trends for decades.
Prada introduced sunglasses and glasses in 2000, growing the line and its stellar reputation over the last decade-and-a-half. These glasses are the perfect fit for people who appreciate the blending of modern technology and contemporary design. Quality and constant product innovation are among the hallmarks of the brand’s eyeglass design ethic, bringing contemporary luxury to people of strong character and unique style.
These eyeglasses come in a diverse range of frames for men and women, in which progressive
and single vision lenses are available to suit your particular vision correction needs. In fact, your lenses will be carefully checked against your prescription by on-staff certified opticians before your new glasses are delivered to you.
Prada spectacles have the brand's unmistakable high style and quality construction. You can choose from among dozens of eye glasses frame styles that range from minimalistic to bold looks that you can customize to suit your personality with numerous color and shape selections.
Prada prescription eyeglasses frame styles often allow you to choose from among a variety of colors and patterns. Some frames make a bold, bright statement in red, blue, tortoiseshell, and more. Other frames have a more classic and minimalistic look with matte black and brushed metallic finishes. Some styles even offer a beautiful two-tone gradient color pattern that is sure to flatter any face.
Shapes represented in Prada eyeglasses for men
include masculine rectangles and squares. Most have bold full rims, but the brand also offers understated semi-rimless frames as well. Popular shapes in Prada's line of glasses for women
include cat-eyes, ovals, rectangles, and rounded edges. Some styles sport unique and ornate arms for an added dash of fashion.
Materials commonly used to construct the eyeglass frames include metal and acetate.
Acetate is the most common material used for frame manufacturing. It has endless possibilities for color, texture, and patterns. It can even be laminated to create great visual effects, and it can retain a higher luster. Acetate is lightweight, so it is often chosen for its versatility in coloring as well as for its comfort. Acetate is made out of cotton seed fibers and plasticizers.
Most metal frames are made out of Monel. Monel has a copper and nickel base. This metal can be corrosion resistant, strong, and easily adjusted. It retains its stability and shape.
Prada eyeglasses are distinctive, not only for their high quality standards, but for their forward-thinking approach to style. If you're looking for a non-conventional interpretation of fashion that embraces technology while respecting tradition, then look no further than Prada's distinctive line of premium eyeglass frames.
