Miuccia Prada And The Miu Miu

Miu Miu is a secondary line of the Italian fashion label house Prada. Prada is a family business which was built by Mario Prada and it was famous for handbags. And it was built by the third generation of Prada family Miuccia Prada to save the declining family business.

Miuccia Prada was the youngest granddaughter of Mario Prada. When she was twenty years old, she had unveiled her sensitive feeling and design talent towards clothing. She used the black nylon waterproof fabric “Pocone” as the material to design all kinds of handbags while sticking the inverted triangle Prada logo which was metal. These kinds of handbags became the popularities in the 1980s.

In 1979, she took over the control of Prada. She began to enrich the variety of the handbags and started to design of tote bags and packsacks. In 1985, Miuccia started her first Prada line which included women’s ready-to-wear and shoes. And thus, Miuccia saved Prada.

In the 1990s, the business turned back on its way. So in 1992, Miuccia started her secondary line Miu Miu which was named after her nickname and targeted at the younger group of people. And in 1993, they released their first Miu Miu product series.The style inherited the main Prada style, simple. But it infused the earthy tone colors which make the collection less mature as the Prada style. The Miu Miu style is more popular than the main Prada style and it brought much more interests for the company. Since the period of 1980s and 1990s, the Prada products became more and more popular and in this period, the Prada clothing and shoes became the main products as the handbags.

In the past Fashion Week shows, they released their new shoes for the coming spring and summer. As it always had been, the collocation of colors makes the shoes vigorous while a little elegant.

These shoes are in the multi-color trend. The matches of these colors are not garish but with the young beauty and a little elegance. If you like the Prada shoes and want to be a girl as you were, you may wear Miu Miu shoes of this summer. You must like them.

Now there are many boutiques were opened around the world and still Miuccia Prada is in charge of the company. She has made great contribution to the development of Prada and the fashion circle, especially the Miu Miu. She does not only save the Prada, she brought something new to Prada and made the Miu Miu come into being.

Prada – Fashion Handbags and Perfumes

Who has not heard of the fashion icon known as Prada? The brand name of Prada has indeed become one of the largest brands ever in the fashion industry. But what most people do not really know about this fashion icon is that most of what is now known today as Prada actually comes from the conceptions of the founder’s granddaughter, Miuccia Prada.

It was way back in 1913 when the brand name of Prada was founded in Milan, Italy. The company started out as a premier manufacturer of high quality leather bags.

But when Miuccia Prada joined the family business in the year 1978, she began revolutionizing their products, especially when it came to their appearance. Miuccia also had a vast interest in fabrics that are quite unusual, and the unexpected combination of these fabrics paved the way for the brand name to develop its trademark. Not long after Miuccia joined the business, she then introduced her own collection of women’s wear, which was welcomed with open arms by the whole world. Following the footsteps of women’s wear, the launching of men’s wear was also welcomed with much success in 1995. And to this very day, Prada clothes remain comfortable, cool, and minimalistic.

To this day, Prada has roughly 250 shops all over the world that it fully owns. All of these shops are indeed entirely owned by the company because it has strong intentions of keeping total control over all its retail activities. This is the primary reason why Prada does not engage in franchise agreements, as well as duty-free shops. All of these 250 stores can be found in over 60 countries worldwide, so it won’t be difficult for you to find an outlet near you. The epicenters of this fashion empire can be found in New York, Beverly Hills, Milan, and Tokyo. Miuccia has also designed a lot of dresses for Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Salma Hayek and Maggie Gyllenhall.

Much like other huge names in the industry, Prada has also expanded into designer fragrances. Prada Cologne for Men, for instance, comes in the name of Amber Pour Homme Cologne, which was released in 2006. Along with the Men’s cologne, Prada Perfume for Ladies is also a huge hit in the market today.
