With a history dating back to 1917, Persol is widely considered one of the best sunglasses makers in the world. Giuseppe Ratti began making glasses for military pilots and racing drivers. Named Persol – meaning for the sun – after making it his mission to protect eyes from the sun’s harmful glare. Even in the modern day, the Italian brand stays true to this and to its rich heritage. Persol sunglasses are still expertly hand-crafted with hours of work poured into each unique pair, while crystal lenses offer supreme clarity and unsurpassed protection. What also sets the sunglasses apart is the Supreme Arrow ensuring authenticity, and the flexible Meflecto system allowing the frame to adapt to any face shape.
