Prada was founded in 1913 by a pair of brothers Mario & Martino Prada. They started designing and selling leather goods in a shop in Milan, Italy under the name ‘Fratelli Prada’ which means Prada Brothers. To begin with they only sold leather goods and imported trunks and handbags from England to sell. It wasn't until Mario's granddaughter, Miuccia, took over in 1978 that the brand had their first commercial hit with waterproof backpacks. Prada expanded, and introduced ladies shoes, and its famous 'read-to-wear' ladies and men's collections, before developing the brand in terms of sunglasses.
The Prada sunglasses range is exactly what should be expected from such a powerful brand. They reflect a strong identity and unmistakable style, whilst maintaining a degree of understated elegance. Prada produce a range of glasses, some of which are suitable for high-fashion, and others which are more suitable to leisure and are designed with this as the main focus instead. In keeping with their clothing ranges, Prada have kept their sunglasses ranges largely in neutral colour, making it easy to wear your favourite sunglasses with numerous outfits.
