Persol’s unmistakable style has always been a cinematic icon. Glasses produced by the brand, founded in Turin in 1917 to deliver quality and excellence, have appeared since the ’60s, in films that have left their mark on the history of cinema. Often worn by stars such as Marcello Mastroianni and Jude Law.

Such is the case for the PO3260S aviator model, which features a bold design presented in new exclusive acetates taken from the brand’s extraordinary archive. Persol has also brought back the PO3250S frame, a model that was very popular in the ’80s thanks to its feminine, sensual design, represented at the time by the beautiful Ornella Muti.

Persol has always been guided by aesthetic and technological innovation, remaining true to its identity while becoming an emblem of Italian style around the world. The brand’s sensitivity to the latest trends, combined with its characteristic elegance, results in new classics every season. Such as its rectangular models with a slim design, made with an elegant mix of metal and acetate shades, which enhance the collection with trendy geometric shapes.

For an unmistakable style that never compromises on quality, the new Persol optical frames feature streaked acetates with a neutral, sophisticated colour palette.
