Persol Steve Mcqueen Limited Edition
Introduced in the 1960s as a folding version of the 649, the 714 was the first-ever folding glasses model. The iconic pilot shape, keyhole bridge, timeless acetates, and foldable system make it a masterpiece of Italian craftsmanship, requiring ten additional manufacturing steps compared to standard models.
If something characterizes Persol brand is its dedication and its taste for a job well done. Today all frames are manufactured by hand in Italy, just as in their origins. And, as at that time, each model must achieve perfection. The use of high-quality materials is an indisputable added value.
On the one hand, cotton acetates for frames. The perfect mix of technology and nature. When combined, unique color variations arise in each frame, so no two models are the same. On the other hand, the lenses. The molten glass is separated, curled, polished, and solidified to give rise to glass lenses that guarantee maximum protection and visual clarity.
Good work, precision, high-quality materials, and timeless designs. All this makes Persol glasses the perfect accessory. If we also add a nonconformist spirit, then we have the limited edition of Steve McQueen, an unconventional actor that would mark an era and continue to gain popularity today. His rebellious attitude and strong personality give his essence to the limited edition of glasses that Persol has created in his honor, a collection aimed at anyone who does not settle for highlighting but dreams of making a legend.
