Prada is one of the oldest luxury fashion houses in the world. While it’s now one of the most recognisable brands out there (and the home of the amazing Prada glasses listed below), it was founded in 1913 by Mario and Martino Prada as a small leather goods shop, Fratelli Prada. Mario held the belief that women should not be involved in business, but it was ironically his daughter that took the helm of the company after him. Her daughter is still involved with the company, and is also the head designer and founder of Miu Miu.
Prada still upholds its reputation as a leather merchant; it’s best known for handbags, but it also branches out into accessories, shoes, perfumes and, of course, eyewear. Prada was thrust further into the cultural limelight in 2006, with the release of The Devil Wears Prada, starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.
This buying guide seeks to show off some of the best Prada glasses, as well as our groundbreaking Virtual Try-On tool that lets you see how they look without even having to leave your home – perfect for a socially distanced try-before-you-buy! If you’re interested in Prada glasses frames or Prada prescription glasses, you’ve most definitely come to the right place.

How To Tell if Prada Glasses Are Real
There are several key indicators of authenticity when it comes to Prada eyeglasses. Products from SmartBuyGlasses will come with a genuine Prada case. These cases are high-quality and sturdy with a soft interior and a cloth that features the Prada logo. This logo, as well as the phrase ‘Made in Italy’ will also be located on the inside of the stems of the glasses themselves. Both the logo and the text will be evenly spaced and written clearly without any blurred lines or letters.
It’s always best to enquire about the eyeglasses’ model number. This information is readily available for authentic Prada eyeglasses; if you’re not sure about this, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
