There's no brand name more special and more recognizable than Prada. Ever since 1913 the label has been the premiere brand exemplifying Italian couture design and craftsmanship. Then with a little help from the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada, the brand got a boost into contemporary times with an edge. If you want to look elegant with a modern twist, a pair of Prada lace-ups is a very good starting point. There's a wide assortment of sharp Oxfords and leather wingtips that absolutely proclaim style and stature. No matter what ensemble you choose to pair it with they will easily become your statement piece.
