Prada, the chic, off-kilter luxury brand.
The House of Prada came into existence in Milan in 1913, taking the name of Fratelli Prada. She predominantly sold bags and luggage made of leather, and acquired an excellent reputation. In the 1970s, the iconic Miuccia Prada joined the adventure. She was audacious and went on to launch an innovating handbag, which was very different to all the classic designs at the time. It was crafted using nylon thread and the bag was fitted with a zip. It was very light and supple, in contrast to Prada's black patent leather bags. Nylon is still one of the main hallmarks of the leather goods maker Prada today.
A real revolution in the world of leather goods.
The appeal of the nylon Pocono bag lay in its silky look and the design attracted much attention in the world of luxury leather goods. In 1985, it took on an even more trendy look with its gold chain and the famous triangular Prada logo. It was then brought out in a multitude of formats, to keep up with the latest trends. There is another material which has proved cult in the story of Prada: Saffiano leather. It is used for a wide selection of other bags and bears witness to the Italian-style elegance and the longstanding know-how for which the house is famous.
