Persol - For The Sun
Turin 1917, Giuseppe Ratti, photographer and owner of Berry Opticians, began to make technically advanced glasses, designed to satisfy the demands of pilots and sports drivers who required comfort, protection and optimum vision.
Protector glasses were born, made using round smoked lenses with rubber edges and attached to the head by means of elastic bands. Soon they were adopted by the Armed Forces and by pilots in the Italian Military Aviation.
Intuition, ingenuity, innovation and quality made Protector glasses the choice of several air forces around the world, including the United States. During this period they were worn by flying, driving and motorcycling aces - D'Annunzio, De Pinedo, Ferrarin, Chiron, Nazzaro, Fangio, Opessi, Bolognini and Ghersi to name but a few of their most famous users.

Made in Italy
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. The Steve McQueen™: celebrate an icon with all the details of the original model worn by the actor.
From standard to polarized, the selection of crystal sun lenses represent quality and excellence, made from the most precious optical materials and used to guarantee the best protection and visual clarity.
Acetate from cotton and powdery pigments blend to form variations that can only be found in Persol glasses, unique for each frame. Made by hand with the highest quality materials, all these glasses are a natural work of art.
Persol’s founder Giuseppe Ratti recognised the need to make his products iconic, choosing the sword of ancient warriors as an inspiration for the Arrow symbol, the unquestioned emblem of the Brand. This Arrow is what makes every Persol unmatchable.
Patented in the ‘30s, the Meflecto is the first flexible stem system designed for maximum comfort by eliminating pressure on the head from glasses. This system allows glasses to adapt to any face shape and still today represents a technologically unsurpassed solution.
