Persol’s PO3274S Silhouette Features a Fully Reimagined Folding Metal Design

When it comes to sunglasses, there are few brands we hold in higher reverence than Persol, if any. With its bountiful catalog of timeless silhouettes, the Italian manufacturer still seeks out a way to pull off new tricks. With the unveiling of its PO3274S, Persol garners influence from its archives to deliver its second-ever pair of folding shades.

As the brand’s foldable follow-up to its iconic 714, the new release is the first of its kind to boast a metal and acetate composition alongside this unique folding system. However, a key difference in the new design is that it now folds inwards rather than downwards,  which is the result of 10 extra steps in each pair’s refined crafting process. Whether you’re a constant traveler or simply want a pocketable set of specs, then this is ideal.

The chic new accessory comes available in a quartet of color combinations, including the pictured Caffe frame with Light Blue lenses and a subtle Transparent Violent frame with Dark Grey lenses. As always, Persol’s signature Arrow logo and Premium Glass lenses make an appearance here, providing 100% UV protection and no shortage of style.

If you’ve been eyeing different pairs of sunglasses to pick up for the summer, then your decision may have just got even harder. Persol’s sleek PO3274S Sunglasses are available now for $408.
