Prada was first established in 1913 by the Italian brothers Mario and Martino Prada. Their shop which was situated in Milan, Italy initially specialized in leather goods and imported English steamer trunks and handbags. Since then, Prada has grown to include other luxury items such as ready-to-wear clothes, leather accessories, shoes, luggage and hat. Despite its largely female clientele, the original founder Mario Prada did not believe that women should be involved in running the business. Hence, he prevented female family members from engaging in business. His son, however, had no interest in taking over the family business. In an ironic twist of fate, Prada was eventually taken over by his daughter, Luisia Prada. After Luisia Prada, her daughter Miuccia Prada took over the business in the 1970s and further established the brand as the status symbol it is today.
Prada logo: The Prada logo is a unique font that many counterfeiters duplicate incorrectly. The most notable feature of the font is the letter “R”. The left leg in the letter “R,” the leg that connects to the loop, should not be a strait line, the way an R would normally look in accordance with most common fonts. Instead the R in Prada should have a tiny squiggle, or curvature, right before it attaches itself to the loop. Any handbags with a strait legged R in the logo is most likely a phony Prada handbag. This font should also remain consistent throughout the Women Bags, any time the Prada logo is stamped, etched or sewn on the bag.
Dustbag: The dustbag is another place to check for the correct R. Any accompanying accessories should also conform to the correct font, from the authenticity card to the dustbag and down the line. Dustbags should also be white, with a black logo. The design of the dustbag may vary depending on the handbag model attached to it, but it should usually be a white bag with a black logo. Use these tips to help spot, and weed out many of the fake Prada handbags floating around online. Good luck and safe shopping!
