Persol Typewriter Edition Sunglasses

Persol Typewriter Edition Sunglasses

Inspired by the antique charm of the long lost writing tool, Persol introduces the “Typewriter Edition” collection. Composed of two timeless shapes, a rounded (3108) and a squared off model (3110), each encompassing subtle details to recall a golden era of  literary heritage.

These combination frames have, a newly conceived metal bridge which is finished with refined laser engravings and features rivets inspired by the letters of the old keyboards.  The name of the collection is written in the iconic “American Typewriter” font on the inner side of the temple with a fan-shaped pattern on the tips that helps prevent slippage. The three-cylinder Meflecto system on each temple ensures maximum flexibility, grip, and comfort. In exclusive acetates, the sunglasses are available in standard, as well as polarized lenses.

Persol 714 Steve McQueen – Limited Edition

Persol 714 Steve McQueen Special Edition sunglasses

An icon reborn.  Persol’s limited edition Steve McQueen 714.

Over fifty years after its original release Persol’s 714 model remains one of the most classic sunglasses of all time.  Since its inception the pioneering foldable frame was the epitome of timeless design and style — However, it was undeniably elevated to legendary status by the iconic “King of Cool”, the late Steve McQueen.

Worn by McQueen both off screen and on, in movies such as “The Getaway” and most notably “The Thomas Crown Affair” where he unforgettably sported a pair of 714’s with lenses he had custom tinted blue (be sure to ask us about our custom lens work). In fact a similar pair from McQueen’s own personal collection was auctioned off in 2006 for a staggering $70,200.

Persol 714 Steve McQueen Special Edition sunglasses

To pay tribute to the 714’s history and the man who cemented its legacy, Persol has released a very limited Steve McQueen edition of the timeless frame, the “714SM”.  There are a couple key and cool distinctions between the 714 and the limited 714SM, including:  inward folding hinges which showcase the signature Persol double arrow, as it was originally in the 1960’s and on the pair McQueen wore.  They are offered in a host of exclusive lens options including technologically advanced blue lenses.  And last but certainly not least, the frame is topped off with limited edition packaging and a premium Italian leather pouch which easily slips into a coat pocket.

Available in 6 color combinations, check them out below:

Persol La Dolce Vita Sunglasses

Persol La Dolce Vita Sunglasses

Persol pays homage to the 50th Anniversary of the legendary film “La Dolce Vita” with a special edition sunglass.

For almost a century Persol has been world renowned for their timeless aesthetics and impeccable craftsmanship.  Synonymous with style and class it’s no surprise that their frames have constantly graced the faces of some of our leading actors in just about every generation. From Marcello Mastroianni, Steve McQueen, Cary Grant, to Tom Cruise, and virtually everyone in between can be seen wearing the classic styles of Persol.

Now in 2010 they honor this connection to film by releasing a special edition collection to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Federico Fellini’s legendary film La Dolce Vita, one of the most iconic movies in Italian cinema. Persol sunglasses were the sunglasses of choice seen on all the actors in Fellini’s films. The collection, fittingly termed “La Dolce Vita”, features two vintage inspired models meant to capture the style and charm of Rome in the 1960’s (the setting of the film).

The Persol 2978/S, shown here, is a classic shape given a vintage feel with its sleek rounded corners. Available in two classic colorways: black with G15 polarized lenses and tortoise with brown polarized lenses. To commemorate the collection the inside temple bares a metal “Heritage Plaque” with the year Persol was established (1917).

Persol Sunglasses

For almost a century the Persol brand has been renowned for its artistry. Persol intertwines top notch craftsmanship and quality with timeless aesthetics producing true works of art, as recently celebrated in the Persol Design Exhibition at the Whitney museum.
I have been a long time collector of Persols from the early, mid, and late Ratti pieces to the current models. After receiving an invitation and attending the opening of Persol’s exhibition, I was inspired to write about, not only my two favorite Persol sunglasses, but perhaps my two all time favorite sunglasses: Persol 649S and Persol 714.

Persol 649S

The persol 649S, created in 1950’s to protect tram drivers from the elements, became instant legend when Marcello Mastroianni wore them in the 1961 Pietro Germi film “Divorce Italian style”.
