Whether it is a bag, pair of shoes, hat, or other accessory, you will notice that any of these items with a Prada label are quite expensive even if they look similar to other bags and some replicas. This is because Prada had a pretty deep history where the people behind the company had an extreme eye for fashion that lead to some very intricate designs. People that can afford these luxury goods not only wish to own these items just so that they can “feel good”, but also because they see these expensive items in a fashionable perspective. The fact that Prada makes sunglasses proves that Prada is aiming for an audience that is deeply into fashion.
The Prada label started way back in 1913 beginning with Mario Prada selling handbags, shoes, and other accessories to boutiques in his area. Their success wasn’t realized worldwide until the classic Prada handbag hit the markets in 1985. Now lead by lead by Miuccia Prada – Mario’s youngest granddaughter, Prada decided to take their good fashion and craftsmanship skills to compete in the eyewear market with their very own lineup of Prada Sunglasses.
Sunglasses and Styles
Like other luxury goods brands, Prada is hard at work in separating their authentic products from imitations and they manage to do that with their sunglasses by choosing very valuable materials that are responsible for their unique colors and styles. You can find different shades including the typical black and brown down to the trendy tortoise or lavender colors. Some of the pairs may closely resemble many other products from other makers that only charge a fraction of a Prada sunglasses’ price tag, but the build quality separates these glasses from the rest which means that the high price is well spent for and usually last providing that they do not get lost.
Prada is also well known for their butterfly sunglasses that are handmade and really cause head turns in highly social communities. Like their contemporary designs, these butterfly shaped frames come in so many styles to choose from with price tags ranging from around $200 to $300. For added authenticity, the famous Prada triangle logo should be seen on the arm hinge.
Women are very attracted to the luxurious aura that these glasses bring because many of the designs have oversized shades and may even have shades that uses faded colors. Even the designs that do not have butterfly frames still attract with their wave shaped arms. It also separates itself from the other sunglasses companies that try to make a difference by being over exaggerated with their designs. Prada sunglasses aim to be very elegant while effectively matching any style or personality that can relate with other Prada accessories.
While sunglasses have evolved in shape, most of the sunglasses available are still black or silver, but Prada will try to make a difference by adding some bright colors to their frames and even going beyond with textured frames such as animal prints, stripes, polka dots, and any abstract design that they can think of. It is expected for these designs to cost much more than their existing products, but that won’t stop fashion enthusiasts from getting a second or third pair of sunglasses if they look attractive enough.
