Prada, founded by Mario Prada in 1913, began as a luxurious Milanese boutique offering exquisite luggage, accessories, and leather goods to Italy's aristocrats and Europe's elite. When Miuccia Prada took over in 1978, with her husband Patrizio Bertelli, the brand evolved into a global powerhouse. Prada’s first women's collection in 1988 received widespread acclaim, paving the way for its expansion into art, architecture, and cinema. Renowned for its avant-garde approach, Prada challenges traditional beauty standards, exploring modern femininity's diverse nature. The brand is known for tailored blazers, luxe knitwear, minimalist nylon jackets, and menswear-inspired footwear. Structural coats, slim trousers, and block-heeled pumps feature ornate embellishments and opulent patterns. Iconic handbags like the Galleria tote and Cahier bag, crafted in signature Saffiano leather, pay homage to Prada’s leatherworking roots.
