EVOLUTION, REINTERPRETATION AND NEW OBJECTS OF DESIRE.
DISCOVER THE INNOVATIVE DESIGNS

Persol has been synonymous with Made in Italy since 1917. The brand’s sophisticated materials and artisan manufacturing processes have been key to its success over the last 100 years. Now Persol enriches its collections with new interpretations and original models.

The new additions range from the evolution of the Calligrapher Edition to the stylish redesign of Persol’s ’40s models and the continued creation of models with a double bridge, which blend retro charm with a contemporary interpretation of ’70s style.

SUNGLASSES
