Originally created for sports drivers and pilots, the story of Persol began in 1917 with creator Giuseppe Ratti.The name Persol, comes from “per il sole” meaning “for the sun”, which is what they are made to do, protect the wearer from the sun. We recently received Persol’s classic folding vintage frame(the original!) as well as the new version. Great for sticking in your pocket for travelling lightly, and of course for the cool factor.Pop on in and have a look at these beauties! Also available are tortoiseshell and black round and square sunglass frames with beautiful lenses with complete UV and UVB protection(also available in Polarized).
