PERSOL VINTAGE CELEBRATION
Created in 1957, Persol 649 is the sunglasses model that identifies the brand more than any other. Designed as sunglasses for Turin tram-drivers, it rapidly became a piece of Italian design history. Loved by films stars, including Marcello Mastroianni, it is, like a true icon, a perpetually successful star, in all its versions.
Rediscovered in the Persol archives, Madreterra is the new exclusive acetate that enriches the Havana palette of the iconic 649 model, the sunglasses that have been a must-have style accessory and symbol of the brand since 1957. An expression of the brand’s craftsmanship, Madreterra acetate is paired with three shades of lenses: gradient light brown, polar blue and green. The flexible temples, with their exclusive Meflecto system, and Victor Flex bridge with three incisions ensure a comfortable fit.
This version of the iconic 649 model features slim profiles and technical details, such as the Mini Freccia Suprema and the Victor Flex bridge with three incisions, in a light version. A comfortable lightweight frame that is now available in the new Madreterra acetate, rediscovered in the Persol archives. The unique pattern enriches the Havana range and is offered in combination with gradient brown, blue and green lenses.
