Glamwire has been fortunate to land one of world’s foremost eyewear experts, Los Angeles based Erin Kathleen O’Brien. Here is EKOB’s first report.
No one has made the brand more iconic than Steve Mc Queen. Arguably the King of Cool throughout the 1960’s and ’70’s. Persol eyewear was a large part of his badass persona. He rocked them in such films as ‘Baby the Rain Must Fall’ (1963), ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ (1968)-and of course, racing his Triumph through the Mojave in ‘The Great Escape’ (1963).
Mc Queen’s trademark frame, the Persol 714, has now been reintroduced by this Italian eyewear powerhouse. Renowned for it’s fine craftsmanship for over 50 years.
Handcrafted, with immpeccable meticulousness in both mechanical and aesthetic appeal, Persol is most easily recognized by it’s trademark ‘Supreme Arrow’. The equivelent to the excellence of the Mazzarati, a finely tuned, precsion work of Italian beauty.
So if you think you have the cojones to bring out your inner sophisticated rebel-check out the Persol Steve Mc Queen Special Edition 714’s…And by the way it folds down. Enough to fit in the pocket of your dusty jeans after a long day of racing your Jaguar SSK through out the ins and outs of Mulholland Drive…and sophisticated enough for that meeting at CAA…
