Persol Reissues Its Classic, Iconic Shades From ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’

Nov 2, 2020

Persol’s sunglasses are among some of the most cinematic in the industry, frequently making an appearance on Hollywood’s best-dressed celebrities. From the foldable 714 classics worn by Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair to the stylish 649 frames featured on Armie Hammer in Call Me by Your Name, the Italian eyewear specialist boasts a seriously star-studded lineup. And once such designs receive their fair share of the spotlight, they’re often brought out of the archives for a fresh take.

The latest reissue comes in the form of the PO3260S, a retro aviator shape first debuted by Marcello Mastroianni in the 1960s classic La Dolce Vita and then more recently by Jude Law in the period thrillerThe Talented Mr. Ripley. Reimagined as a line of seven new sunglasses, each colorway comes with a striking acetate frame and a high-quality crystal lens to match. The combinations range from understated staples like black and Havana to bolder pieces such as a brown tortoise model with opal accents. Available with polarized and standard lenses, they start at $260.
