Find on Myframesaver the latest Persol fashion sunglasses for men and women

The entire 2015 and 2016 Persol sunglasses collection is available on Myframesaver. Persol (that is Per- Sol, meaning "for the sun") brand was born in Italy, in the city of Turin in 1917. In that year, Giuseppe Ratti, well-known photographer and owner of Berry Opticians, began to make technically advanced frames, conceived to fit the warplane pilots needs, that are comfort, protection and optimum vision.

Persol 649, probably the most famous sunglasses made by the turin brand, was first conceived in 1957 for Turin tram drivers who asked for large glasses to protect their eyes against the air and dust, was created in 1957. This innovative and balanced model immediately hit the market and became a worldwide success. In 1961 Persol 649 entered into legend when Marcello Mastroianni wore them in the film “Divorce Italian Style”. Persol 649 sunglasses are still one of the top selling frames in the world.

Introduced in the 1960s as a folding version of the 649 model, Persol 714 sunglasses were the first folding frames ever. Possessing folding sunglasses was so trendy that many holliwood stars began showing with them on. Among them the face that mostly has been connected to Persol 714 is Steve McQueen's face. He was noticed wearing them in "The Thomas Crown Affair" movie. This combination has become so famous that Persol 714 are now known as Persol SteveMcQueen sunglassses.
When it comes to his style, Steve McQueen sunglasses are one of the few examples that actually can be legitimally recalled. McQueen made Perso 714 a stable piece of his look; he often preferred blue lenses, andtortoise shell frame and wore them either in movies or in real life, so that these glasses are part of his iconic dimension.

Persol 649 and Persol 714 are available for purchasing on Myframesaver sunglasses store also in their revisited versions, PO9649 and PO 9714, the ultimate evolution of Persol’s folding technology.
