Prada SS2015 Eyewear Collection


Prada SS2015 eyewear collection for women reveals an eclectic interplay of styles, where a contemporary design meets experimentation with new materials. Classic elegance and vintage inspirations blend with large, structured silhouettes. The new materials are a symbol of skilful craftsmanship and with the use of wood and leather signify a return to nature. Bold topstitching features in the collection for the first time. Subtle nods to the 1970s and conceptual structures define the new Prada Raw glasses, made from two precious types of wood: black walnut and Malabar ebony. The iconic Minimal-Baroque model is now enhanced with the experimental use of wood, reflecting the leitmotiv of the Prada SS2015 women fashion show and completing the Prada Raw collection. The natural irregularity of the wood’s veining turns each pair of glasses into a unique creation, the utmost expression of masterly craftsmanship. The collection includes a new chapter in the Prada Journal optical frames collection. The new Prada Journal models feature retro-inspired frames, enriched by the three-dimensional temples’ sophisticated design.
