In 1913, brothers Mario and Martino Prada opened a small shop selling leather travel bags, suitcases, travel accessories, and luxury goods. High-quality workmanship, Italian elegant design, as well as the fact that the exclusive products created by the brand did not go out of fashion in a short period of time brought success to the Prada brothers not only in Italy but also abroad. As a symbol of luxury and success, Prada products have become in demand by representatives of the European bourgeoisie. For more than half a century, the Prada family business developed in one direction, until in the seventies Miuccia Prada took the reins into her own hands. She transformed a small family company into a fashion house that dictates the latest trends every season.
In the early eighties, the Prada range began to expand. First came the women's bags and the famous backpack made of parachute nylon fabric. This was followed by a collection of shoes, and in 1989 a collection of women's clothing was released. Clothing with simple and clear lines designed in soothing colors, with a predominance of black, immediately attracted fans of minimalism. The first eyewear collection appeared in 2000 in partnership with the Italian company Luxottica. The variety of models from traditional square shapes to trendy geometric options impresses fans of the brand every season. The eyeglasses are made of modern lightweight materials and the color palette of the frames perfectly reflects fashion trends.
