History of Mens Prada Shoes
Despite a long history stretching all the way back to 1913, the Prada name only became a globe-dominating fashion house in relatively recent decades. Originally founded by Italian brothers Mario and Martino Prada in Milan, the small business focused on producing leather goods and gradually developed into a modestly successful company. Mario didn’t believe that women should be involved in business, so it’s quite ironic that his son had no interest in inheriting the company which was ultimately passed on to Mario’s daughter, Miuccia, in the 1970s. The irony gets even deeper when it turned out to be this gifted woman who completely transformed the company into one of the most famous and respected fashion houses in the world. Indeed, the name is now forever associated with the talents and styles of Miuccia rather than the original founder. Producing ever-expanding lines of prestigious menswear, womenswear, footwear, fragrances and accessories, the company generates billions of dollars every year, regularly picks up a wealth of major industry awards, and continues to build on its own legendary reputation.
