Prada is one of the most iconic designer labels of all time and if you own a pair of Prada sunglasses, then you’re certainly in good company with the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Cheryl Cole, Anne Hathaway, Paris Hilton and George Clooney all regularly papped wearing their Prada shades.
Prada was actually founded almost a century ago and remains an incredibly sought after and desired label in the fashion industry, with the Prada sunglasses collection ranging from funky and modern to classically elegant and traditional in style.
If you’re looking for something more trend-inspired this season, then the sultry cat-eye inspired look is definitely a sunglass style that you need to be sporting. Prada’s exquisitely luxurious PR21NS Prada sunglasses are one of the latest styles added to the collection and with their thick winged frame, perfectly capture the sexy and feminine cat-eye look in true Prada form! The new PR24NS Prada sunglasses are also cat-eye influenced but with their defined and angled frame, infuse a more contemporary edge.
Retro and sporty frames are also a key look this season for guys and the new PR19NS Prada sunglasses for men will add an effortlessly cool, vintage edge to every look. The ‘chunky’ style frame tone keeps the sunglasses casual and relaxed but the fine detailing seen in the frame colour and upon the arm, perfectly infuses the sleek and high fashion Prada twist. If you prefer to go more classic, then the PR54IS Prada sunglasses are masculine and versatile whilst also boasting a hint of a sporty finish with their slightly oversized rectangular shaped lenses and carbon arms.
Every pair of Prada sunglasses possess timeless looks and the brand is so desired and renowned in the fashion arena that it will never be regarded as out of style. The Prada brand has a beautifully distinctive look that somehow manages to combine edgy, dramatic and unique with elegant, flawless and polished, which is why a pair of Prada sunglasses will make the ultimate style investment this season and beyond.
