Founded in 1913 by Mario Prada, this brand began as a luggage, accessories and luxury goods store in the exclusive Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Within just six years, Prada had received the “Official Supplier of the Italian Royal Household” honour.

By the seventies, Mario’s granddaughter Miuccia had taken the reins of the company, extending its influence outside of Italy and on a global scale. Her avant-garde designs began to set trends on a seasonal basis.

Today, Miuccia Prada remains the head designer of the company, as well as creative director of Miu Miu, a sister brand she founded in 1993. Her label produces men’s and women’s accessories, clothing and shoes in stand out designs that have found their way into trend-setters’ wardrobes all over the globe.

With an expansive eye that considers art, architecture and cinema, Prada’s designs represent the zeitgeist of the time, and often looks to the future in amazing trend-setting style.

A great place to start for a Prada fan is with a handbag, as their forward-thinking designs contrast beautifully with the label’s decades-old leather goods history. Browse Prada for women here at BrandAlley and find beautiful trend-setting designs at astonishing prices.
