Persol’s shades have always been associated with some really cool dudes. Just Google the name Steve McQueen and you’ll see the iconic actor rocking the brand’s shades in almost all the pictures. While the legendary foldable tortoise shell frames with the blue lenses might give you some instant cool, the brand’s new Film Noir collection will turn your intimidation factor from one to 11—yes, eleven.
The Gangster, the Detective, and the Reporter are three new sunglasses found in the collection. Persol digs also in its archives—all the way back to the ‘50s—and revives a throwback Phoenix Arrow design to replace the usual Supreme Arrow on the hinges. All are murdered-out giving you a bad boy persona that might make some people think you can kick some serious ass.
