Prada had been a classic staple in the world of luxury fashion since the the 1920s. The brand is renowned for its amazing craftsmanship, and for its sleek, classic lines. The brand is internationally recognized purses, foot wear, and eyewear.
Prada was founded in 1913, by a man named Mario Prada looking to recreate high quality, leather luggage and purses he had seen in Paris during his travels. He was an instant success in Italy in his small town of Milan. However, it was his granddaughter Muiccia, who inherited the company in the late 1970s, who rocketed the company to “fashion staple” status. It was Muiccia who created the first line of Prada purses with their signature logo.
Today Prada is present in most luxury department stores and have opened their own boutiques around the world. Prada has since expanded to include clothes, shoes, and now, eyewear. In 2000, Prada introduced its first line of eyewear, which were and still are very successful.
