In 1913, Mario Prada started his fashion house in Milan, Italy and it didn’t take long for this family run business to set the fashion world on its ear. Though decades passed before the Prada name truly became worldwide, it didn’t stop Mario and his family from tweaking their line of clothing and leather goods into the fashion institution it is known as today. In 1978 Miuccia Prada, Mario’s granddaughter, took over the business and turned it into the renowned company it is now. It is known for its quality goods and elegant styles and it doesn’t matter if it’s a purse or a pair of sunglasses that you are wearing.
Prada really took off in the 1990s and it became a fashion line that everyone could afford. Prada sunglasses have especially been given a boost in the consumer market thanks to many celebrities wearing them on and off the screen. Fans of the television show ‘Sex And The City’ are well versed in Prada sunglasses – and other products by the fashion house. Sarah Jessica Parker’s character could not stop praising Prada products and her Prada sunglasses never left her face for long. Whether or not Prada asked for this unique marketing technique we’ll never know, but the exposure was definitely good for everyone involved.
Trendy and stylish, you can find all of your favourite sunglass styles with the Prada name etched into them. You can find everything from Aviator style to the well loved large lens glasses in the Prada sunglasses line up. Each frame is a true Italian design and they are all elegant with smooth lines that are made by the best craftsmen the company can find. They are a sound investment that will never go out of style and you will always look sexy wearing them, even if you are in your old pair of comfortable jeans.
Like the Miu Miu line of Prada sunglasses, the other Prada lines are made from organic plastic. This makes them a bit expensive, but when you buy a pair of sunglasses that protects your eyes from UV rays that are made from high quality materials, you are buying the best product money can get you. Always make sure the Prada logo is on the glasses. If it’s not, put them down. They are not authentic and not the investment you are looking for.
