Of the world’s most prestigious high-end labels, only Prada can claim that its leader holds a PhD in political science, has collaborated with shock artist Damien Hirst, and once aspired to be a professional mime. At the company helm since 1978, head designer Miuccia Prada has transformed her family’s eponymous fashion house from a modestly profitable producer of leather handbags and luggage into an award-winning, global megabrand. Coveted by fashionistas the world over for their impeccable quality and originality, Prada’s clothing and accessories represent Italian style at its sexiest and most effortless. The brand’s luxurious bags, jewelry, ready-to-wear, shoes, fragrances, sunglasses, and eyeglasses for men and women vary widely in style, but uniformly honor the company’s legacy of innovation and craftsmanship. Founded in Milan 1913 by Mario Prada, Miuccia’s grandfather, Prada currently runs its flagship label, the women’s diffusion line Miu Miu, and the footwear brands Church’s and Car Shoe.
