Persol Adds Platinum-Plated Lenses To Steve McQueen’s Favorite Shades

Apr 13, 2021

Category: Style

The Persol 714 is one of the most iconic sunglass styles in existence, largely due to the fact that they were a favorite of style icon Steve McQueen. Now, the folding Italian-made 714s have become even more tempting than ever thanks to the 714 Steve McQueen Special Edition series of five new colorways, including one with lenses that have been plated with actual platinum.

The obvious standout in the new collection is the unique Platinum Edition 714SM, as it features special packaging and exclusive platinum-plated lenses in a Havana frame for a seriously high-end look. Joining the new flagship in the lineup are four other new color variants of the 714SM: Light Havana (Terra di Siena) with light blue polarized lenses, Havana with green polarized lenses, Black with smoke gray polarized lenses, and a striking Honey (Miele) frame with gradient sky blue polarized lenses that were inspired by the first plane McQueen ever flew, a honey-colored Boeing-Stearmen. The entire 714SM collection is available now from Persol, with the four new colorways priced at $480 and the Platinum Edition going for $790.

Purchase: $480+
