Persol is a renowned Italian eyewear manufacturer known for creating timeless eyewear. The company debuted in 1917 with technically advanced glasses, especially designed for sports drivers and pilots who needed perfect vision, protection and ultimate comfort. Nowadays, Persol’s roots are still grounded in unrivaled craftsmanship and technical perfection. With its sonorous name, meaning “for sun,” it is the true heir to the Italian culture of excellence, a perfect symbiosis of technology and aesthetics. The fascinating design and artistic quality of Persol glasses make them a premier choice among famous sportsmen, artists and musicians such as Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, Leonardo Di Caprio, Bradley Cooper, and Zac Efron.
Every Persol frame is a real masterpiece of design and engineering. The process of production consists of more than thirty basic stages, combining top-grade materials, cutting-edge technology, unparalleled industry expertise and meticulous attention to every detail. The glasses come with Barberini® mineral lenses, made with the finest materials and utilizing advanced manufacturing processes to ensure high durability and the purest visual image.

Meflecto is the exclusive frame technology from Persol. Patented at the end of the 30’s, this flexible stem system is still an unsurpassed solution that guarantees maximum comfort for the wearer by adapting to any face shape and eliminating pressure on the head from the arms. Owing to their unmistakable style, Persol glasses are recognizable all over the world. The final feature of Persol eyewear is the Silver Arrow, aka ‘Supreme Arrow’ on the frame. Inspired by the swords of ancient warriors, this symbol is specific to Persol glasses and is displayed on both temples.
Many popular eyewear brands have a pair of distinguished frames approved by celebrities or the ones that appeared in movies. Persol created its legendary Persol 649 many years ago. However, even today it remains the unmistakable brand icon favored by true individuals worldwide. Today, the famous 649 model is offered in a unique interpretation – the limited edition 649 Dedar featuring elegant blue color and red logotypes on temple tips. The unique keyhole bridge and Silver Arrows make this outstanding model a timeless classic.
