Before the rise of luxury Prada sunglasses, the iconic brand started by producing and selling leather goods.
It all started in the early 1900s when the Prada brothers began as a leather goods company. The brand’s popularity rose significantly throughout the years and by 1997 Prada had expanded its ‘fashion reign’ worldwide.
It wasn’t until 1999 that Prada, together with De Rigo Group, launched its first eyewear collection. Subsequently, the brand was taken over by the leading manufacturer in the eyewear industry, Luxottica - which now produces and distributes many other well-known brands like Ray-Ban, Gucci, or Persol.
Prada eyewear has dominated even cinematic scenes like The Devil wears Prada or Sex and the City. So if you are looking to find a must-have accessory to fit into today's elite, you can’t go wrong with a pair of classic black Prada sunglasses!
High-end and exclusive designs have characterized the faces of many with ritzy and timeless styles that only Prada sunglasses can offer.

Generally, Prada sunglasses have good UV protection added to the lenses.
Alongside quality UV filters you can find Prada sunglass lenses in various tints and lens coatings. If you find that mirrored lenses work best for you and your style, you'll find a range of Prada mirrored sunglasses that have UV protection.
Mirrored sunglasses help reduce harmful rays entering the eye thanks to the outer lens coating that blocks out glare and UV light.
Depending on the style of your Prada sunglasses, some frames help provide a fuller eye coverage to block UV light from the sides. If the frame is slightly curved at the edge it may feel visually better compared to a falter design. Nevertheless, most sunglasses provide the UV protection needed.
As Prada sunglasses tend to be larger than other brands, the materials used are lightweight and offer a good and comfortable fit. This is also for the lens materials, light polycarbonate that is light and offers quality eye protection against UV rays.
You should consider adding an anti-scratch coating to the UV lenses in Prada sunglasses. This will help keep them looking new and last longer.
You can find a range of women's sunglasses and men’s sunglasses that differ in styles, colors, sizes, and frame shape. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that you can find a pair of unisex sunglasses that fit both ladies and gents.
Prada sunglasses have a range of women’s, men’s, and unisex eyewear great for many face shapes and eccentric looks. So really, any pair of glasses you find could potentially be the right fit for you, if they are comfortable and you enjoy wearing them.
The main factor that differentiates sunglasses or eyeglasses for men and women, would be the size. Depending on our facial structure we should find eyewear that sits correctly on your face. If you have a low nose bridge and find standard-sized glasses slip down, then maybe you could try a pair of Prada Asian-fit sunglasses.
Asian fit sunglasses are smaller than regular sized eyewear and allow for those with flat facial features to benefit from a comfortable and stylish look.
Another example of classic frames styles that can be for both men and women is cat-eyed sunglasses. The timeless frame has been modernized and is a lavish style for different face shapes, outfits, and fashion. You can’t go wrong with an exclusive pair of Prada cat-eyed sunglasses.
Wonder why Prada sunglasses tend to cost more, like many other luxury brands? Frame and lens materials, with which eyewear is made, do have weigh-in costs.
There are Prada sunglasses made of acetate frames that are lightweight and hypoallergenic. Acetate is a more durable plastic but still affordable and also available in many different colors. Acetate sunglasses are also perfect for sensitive skin.
Prefer something more redefined and slim? Prada titanium sunglasses cost more but the material used has a high resistance impact and are more flexible. Titanium sunglasses still have the benefits of acetate, as they provide a comfortable fit with a light hypoallergenic frame.
At the end of the day, when purchasing Prada eyewear you are guaranteed quality Italian craftsmanship through bold and unique aesthetics.
