Information and Historyof Prada the Luxury Brand
Prada. The name alone signifies style and luxury, designer handbags and fabulous shoes. Born nearly a century ago, The House of Prada is recognized worldwide for its simple and elegant creations.
Mario Prada started the Prada label in 1913. He designed and sold handbags, shoes, trunks, and suitcases though two boutiques in Milan, and had clients across Europe and the US. When the signature Prada suitcases, made from heavy, cumbersome walrus skin, proved to be ill suited for air travel, Prada concentrated on designing exquisite leather accessories and waterproof handbags.
By the 1990’s, Prada was a leading force in fashion. The garments and accessories were smart, sophisticated, and extremely high quality. Luxurious fabrics and simple styles, mostly in blacks, browns, grays, greens, and creams, became the signature Prada look.
The apparel was sexy and spoke of confidence without revealing too much skin. Accessories included skinny leather belts, elegant high heeled shoes, and of course, the classic handbag. ( tassen en riemen )
The Prada look has certainly evolved over the years, and Miuccia is credited with many innovations in fabric and design.
She has added everything from mirror fragments to beaded latex to her garments, and experimented with new and unique fabric blends.
Even with all of this experimentation however, the caliber of the finished product has never wavered.
Prada is famous for using a lot of crunchy polyester in their designs, as well as nylon and a few other synthetic fibers that would look in vogue in cities for amsterdam to Antwerp.
