Exquisite detailing, minimalistic structuring and timeless style epitomise the legacy of Prada collections. Founded by two Italian brothers within a Milanese workshop, their craftsmanship and family name soon launched into the World as they became notable purveyors of finely crafted leather goods. Over the years Prada soon became a global fashion powerhouse, hosting seasonal haute couture runway shows, before soon branching out to line their boutiques with luxurious accessories, ready-to-wear clothing and perfumes. Our collections here at Timeless Vintage are frequently graced by pre-loved and iconic Promenade and Galleria bags, plus a number of coveted accessories and clothing items too.

More About Prada
The alluring streets of Milan have produced an astonishing number of fashion houses over the last century — the most prominent among them being Prada. Unlike its Italian counterpart Gucci, Prada is still under the creative direction of the family, with Miuccia Prada and her appointed co-director, Raf Simons, in creative control. The brand was founded in 1913, but Prada didn’t see worldwide success until the early eighties. Miuccia Prada began to introduce a series of nylon bags, an unconventional fabric at the time, but they soon began to turn heads. With each new handbag or ready-to-wear collection, Prada’s prominence grew.
In a bid to carve out their own place in the world of luxury fashion, Prada created a public image that contrasted sharply with the noble status of brands like Dior and Louis Vuitton. They catered to an emerging market of clients who desired high-fashion pieces in casual styles. And instead of focussing on patterns, many items are created with a single fabric colour, which emphasises their desire to put structure and style at the forefront of our visual perception. Prada knows how to do understated opulence, minimalism and practicality, and it does all three exceptionally well. Prada bags are known for their simplistic but highly detailed structuring, and their clothing lines entwine elegance, with a flash of fun.
Here at Timeless Vintage you can peruse pre-loved Promenade bags, or discover your very own Galleria bag in our online collection of secondhand Prada. To add a Milanese twist to your outfit, look for the Cahier Shoulder bag or a classic Prada Nylon backpack. Many people are jumping back into a wave of naughties nostalgia, with the Re-Edition Nylon bags enjoying a place in the spotlight once again. Whether secondhand, pre-loved or vintage, the sleek structuring and timeless designs of Prada will compliment any outfit.
