Persol sunglasses are the choice of James Bond and a long list of other leading men including Brad Pitt, Steve McQueen and Ryan Gosling. It is easy to understand why these stars swear by the 100-year old eyewear brand’s sunglasses—they never go out of style. The persol name has been synonymous with Italian style since 1917.
Persol does an excellent job of updating their fan’s favourites to keep up with the latest in fashion. The Double Bridge Collection is a perfect example of this, the classic frames have been redesigned to stay fresh in the current fashion climate. They are a modern interpretation of the 1970s style shades, and look great on most face shapes – casual enough to wear with your favourite pair of jeans yet smart enough to wear with a suit.
Inspired by elegant architecture, the Double Bridge Collection comes in several different colour combinations, and also comprises a Vintage Celebration Collection. This collection features a Fuoco e Ardesia frame with a light green silver mirror lens. There is also a striped brown frame with blue anti-glare lenses. Another option is the Terra e Oceano frames combined with brown mirror gold lenses. If you want to choose a more traditional colour combination, there is a black frame with grey lens and a Havana tortoiseshell frame with polar brown anti-glare lenses.
Not only are you getting a fashionable pair of sunglasses with these shades but you are getting incredible quality and craftsmanship. They are handcrafted in Italy from pure acetate. Also, all of Persol lenses offer 100 percent UV protection.
