Prada Runway Red Cat-Eye Amber Crystal Sunglasses, 2012


Prada has a knack for making luxury look unusual and off-beat. The one hundred year old Italian design house, which is now helmed by original owner’s granddaughter Miuccia, dabbles in looks that evoke everything from steampunk to French couture. These sensational sunglasses from a 2012 runway show allude to the sparkly cat-eye glasses of 1940s Hollywood.

Silver metal frames form the armature, sitting sleekly over the ears before extending over the eyes like an amazing set of brows. Faceted amber-colored Swarovski crystals are set into the silver frame, fanning out in angles towards the ears. Red plastic frames with tinted lenses drop down from the frame. The Prada logo is engraved on the outside of arms and signed Prada on the inside. Prada’s 2012 sunglasses would look at home on everything from the platinum-haired perfection of Marilyn Monroe, to the flawless beauty of unruly hair.

These 2012 Prada sunglasses are in excellent condition. Silver metal frames have narrow arms, which transition into a thick band over the eyebrows. The band features faceted amber-colored Swarovski crystals that are graduated in size as they fan out towards the edge. Red plastic frames with subtle cat eye shaping complete the look. Clear nose pads attach to red frames. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
