Persol reinterprets the iconic 649 with the contemporary appeal of metal

Persol reinvents the brand’s outstanding icon and expands the 649 family with two new sunglasses and opticals created by combining refined tones of metal, precious acetate temple tips and crystal lenses.

The new version of the 649 testifies to the constant evolution of Persol’s style. Created in 1957 and immediately adopted by Steve McQueen and many other movie stars, the 649 continues to be a cult object that goes beyond the confines of time and fashion. An accessory that boasts Made in Italy sophistication and stands out for its craftsmanship and use of premium materials.

The new models redesigns the 649 with ultra-slim, exceptionally lightweight and robust frames, which are stylized with Persol’s characteristic iconic details: the Victor bridge, the Meflecto and the Arrow hinge. The Vintage Celebration acetate temple tips complete the style of the new Persol icon.
