Miu Miu, forties inspired with Hollywood glamour
Founded by Miuccia Prada in 1993, the Miu Miu eyewear brand and collection is an offshoot from the fashion powerhouse Prada. The name Miu Miu is derived from Miuccia Prada’s family nickname. The first boutique opened in Via della Spiga, Milan.
Three years after the label’s launch it’s first collection was displayed at New York Fashion Week in 1995. Kate Moss is selected to star in the show and this instantly gains the attention of the industry. From there the success of the brand continues to grow.

Miu Miu Eyewear has offered a hip, chic fashion option created for stylish, younger customers. With highly distinctive shapes and unusual frames, Miu Miu glasses define the fashion forward customer.
The styles give any look a contemporary cool finish with that catwalk feel. The optical and sunglasses range shows geometric shapes and statement making styles.
