Sunglasses can be seen as more than the sum of their parts and offer both an aesthetic value (in the way that they look) and a practical value (in helping to protect eyes from harmful UV light). Over the decades various models of sunglasses have become as iconic those who wear them. In today’s news entry we would like to draw our readers attention to one of the most iconic styles that we have at our independent opticians; the Persol Steve McQueen Limited Edition Sunglasses.
Inspired by the screen actor’s love of the original 714 folding sunglasses, Persol have re-released the frames based on the original design - a favourite of the American icon. The latest iteration in Persol’s pursuit of innovative and eye-catching design, the limited edition Persol Steve McQueen sunglasses are available at Roger Pope and Partners of London. The 714 collection, introduced in the 1960s as a folding version of the 649 model, were the first-ever folding glasses. This model requires ten additional manufacturing steps compared to the standard ones.
714 glasses owe their fame to Steve McQueen™, who wore them in the film The Thomas Crown Affair and to celebrate, Persol have produced the range as limited edition sunglasses
Available in three high quality acetate frame colours Light Havana, Black 95 and Caffe 108 the glasses all feature signature polarised blue lenses, the unique folding system, the Persol arrow on the stem and front and the name Steve McQueen which is reproduced inside the stem and on the stylish leather case.
