It’s not just a Bag, It’s Prada!

Updated on March 12, 2011

What is it about Prada bags that women adore so much? First time you see it, you actually think ‘Oh I must have this!’ Some work so hard just to buy the latest famous designer bag. Some can’t wait that long so they would get that fabulous hand bag in hand before going home. Some just want all of them – the entire Prada winter and summer collection of the year. Oh gosh, it’s not about the trend or the color. It’s pretty much not about the shocking price. It’s not about the sparkling gems and the gorgeous leather either. Because it’s not just a bag, it’s Prada.

Prada is not only known for its glamorous and luxurious designer handbags because people worldwide also have a sweet fancy for Prada shoes, sneakers, sunglasses, fragrances, clothing, and all fantabulous bits in the world of couture.

Most wanted Prada bags and their prices

Because Prada has maintained high quality, sophisticated, and fashionable products for decades now, it has established a big label and has reigned its elite place in the royalty of fashion. Whoever carries the elite label carries also the high status symbol attached with it. And whatever carries that high class status, worth a high price. Prada bags cost in the price ranging around $1000 to $1500. The expensive types range from $3000 or above. There are also smaller Prada hand bags that cost around $500 or below.

You deserve the original genuine Prada so you better shop only from those real Prada store outlets. If you want authenticity, purchase only from official Prada boutiques.

The designer behind the label

Mario Prada founded the Prada label in 1913. He designed and sold handbags, shoes, steamer trunks and suitcases with his two shops in Milan while importing across the US and Europe. Apparently, Prada’s signature suitcase was loved by many, Prada concentrated on crafting exquisite leather and waterproof handbags. Luisia Prada, Mario’s daughter, took over Prada and ran it for almost twenty years. Her daughter, Miuccia Prada, inherited the company in 1978 and has released new sets of waterproof backpacks and totes. In 1985 Prada became a sensation. Prada’s popularity maxed out when the fashion world took notice of its clean lines, lavish fabrics, and basic colors. In 1990s Prada became a luxury status symbol. In 1992, Prada has launched its subsidiary with Miuccia’s nickname, now known as Miu Miu which also became a high fashion brand catering to younger consumers like celebrities.

      I love Prada bags, too but I'm already fabulous LOLOL Gucci? Noted ma'am :) They are on my hubs-to-publish list. I'd splurge to other things than bags. But yeah once in a while, we just gotta have that glam purse. I can't buy a three grand bag yet and three grand could feed thousand of streetchildren here. I've never heard of Prada cars but I've seen a Burberry limo LMAO You can say anything in Blaise pages :p

      Wow, I am out of the loop. I love Prada but I have nothing by them. Any chance you can do a hub on Gucci? LOL. (joke) The history of Prada is interesting. I don't have three grand for a bag. I would put my money towards a franchise, I'd get a better return and then when I am stinking rich I can buy lots of Prada bags and Prada cars! Hahahaha. Oh sorry, I am confusing with Skoda now. :O

      This is good, but out of my range. Thanks for this anyway. : ) Take care, blaise. XOX
