Prada lead the way when it comes to oversized sophisticated designer sunglasses. A few years ago Prada’s Butterfly sunglasses caused a sensation when they were released. Literally hundreds of celebrities were papped wearing them, including; Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, Paris Hilton, and Rihanna and this fashion fancy diffused to the general public who couldn’t get enough of the unique and contemporary design. The Prada Butterfly shape, spawned dozens of copies and has now become a design classic. It is rare for a pair of sunglasses to make such an impact on the fashion-scape. The likes of Ray Ban’s Wayfarer sunglasses and Tom Ford’s Whitney sunglasses have both achieved cult status by creating a trend for that particular style of sunglasses, but it is an uncommon occurrence.
There is still demand for the Prada Butterfly sunglasses, but fashion moves on and the current trend is for large square frames, vintage looking cats eye sunglasses and also small round lenses. Prada has reworked their Butterfly shades for Summer 2011 to meet the demand for oversized square frames and has come up trumps with a number of styles that hit the proverbial nail on the head. Such styles are;
Prada Sunglasses PR03MS
Prada Sunglasses PR16MS
Prada Sunglasses PR18MS
These can all be bought in classic black and each collection has a number of different colour frames and lenses including purple and tortoiseshell. The stylish Prada logo can also be spotted on the arms or the hinge, depending on which shape you opt for. Songstress Taylor Swift has recently been spotted wearing a pair of the black Prada sunglasses PR18MS.
Whilst square sunglasses are all the rage, Prada has helpfully designed a pair of chunky, triangular frames, that tick the box for the cat’s eye trend. Prada sunglasses PR19MS are a nod to Old Hollywood, when the female stars were super feminine and personified glamour. With thick frames in timeless black, brown and a fabulous clear pink, it’s easy to spice up your summer with a little vintage Hollywood allure.

We all know that Prada is a brand which captures the essence of luxury and high-fashion. However, sometimes a brand needs to be able to provide something a little more casual and practical whilst still of course retaining the glamour and style. Therefore Prada also launched Prada Sport in the early 1990’s which is the brand’s leisure line and designed to be slightly more sport fashion orientated, as the name suggests.
Now, whilst most of us may think of tracksuits or even worse, the dreaded shell suit when we think of sports fashion it has actually become very much on trend over recent years and the definition of a sporty style certainly does not mean baggy, conservative or unflattering. In today’s era whereby physical activity or at least being on the go most of the time has become part of many of our lifestyles, we can’t walk around wearing high fashion attire or accessories all of the time because it simply isn’t practical. Advertising has also become far more leisure fashion orientated with images of healthy, athletic and happy people on the go. Sports stars are also becoming sports personalities and we see them wearing sport/fashion brands which of course then increases the popularity of the sports/fashion genre and makes it regarded as more trcndy and sought after. Prada quickly recognised this and by providing the Prada Sport line, this means the brand really does have something for those who want their attire and accessories to enhance their physical performance and thus caters for fashion across all style sectors.
The collection of Prada Sport sunglasses are highly stylish but are designed to be more practical for everyday wear, robust and durable. The Prada Sport label is sometimes known as the Linea Rossa line which means ‘red line’ in Italian and this is because a red line is the defining design detail used on the Prada Sport products. Within the range of unisex Prada Sport sunglasses, you will often find the red line positioned on the arms. It is a highly distinctive feature and simple yet stylish. Prada Sport sunglasses aren’t designed to be bold fashion accessories but more geared towards practicality with that trendy and super stylish Prada edge.
The main characteristics of Prada Sport sunglasses are very much associated and influenced by notorious Italian exquisite style and quality perfection. The brand strongly believes that high quality should be top of the design agenda and therefore the collection of sunglasses are designed based on extensive research and development and use only the most durable and robust materials in the production stages to ensure a long lasting product that can be worn on a day to day basis and never fail to look fantastic. Prada Sport is an innovative brand that utilises advanced technologies but respects that people favour the brand for its tradition style and concepts. Prada Sport sunglasses definitely have are strong character which is enhanced by flawless technology and unique style. The ultimate in combining practicality with full function. A fantastic range of sunglasses that are contemporary, cool and offer something highly credible in the sports/fashion world.

The PR54GS unisex sunglasses with gold and bronze colouring are also incredibly chic and offer that great balance of sports style with a luxurious edge. Prada sunglasses are identified by their very strong, intense and technical character and unique style and the PS50HS unisex sunglasses are a great example of that unique innovation and are an aviator sports style with the classic red stripe Prada logo featured on the arms.
Some of the more fashion orientated Prada sunglasses include oversized frames such as the jet black PR08LS ladies sunglasses.

There are also a great range of more classic style frames and aviators and Prada is one of those brands which really has something for every style preference whether you are looking for overstated, understated or something in between. Taking classic trend favourites, Prada likes to inject something a little personal to the brand whether this is the use of colour, pattern or unique design features as well as adopting a completely classic approach. Sometimes keeping a product classic can be just as popular as funky, edgy and contemporary and Prada likes to provide as many style options as possible.
Prada is now regarded as one of the most iconic and sought after designer brands in the industry and its status was also boosted following the hit film ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ whereby the brand was completely brought to the forefront as being the ultimate fashion leader.
