Persol’s First-Ever Collaboration Is A Revival Of Their Iconic 649 Shades

Persol — the glasses manufacturer favored by the King of Cool himself, Steve McQueen — has always stood alone. That is to say, they’ve never needed to call on help from any other brands to help sell their shades. But needs and wants don’t always gel, so the brand has decided to finally pursue their first-ever collaboration.

A revival of one of their many pairs of iconic sunglasses, these 649s — done in collaboration with Parisian fashion label A.P.C. — are being released in a trio of exclusive colorways. One is honey-gold with gradient lenses, the second is white with dark grey lenses, and the third is brown with blue-green lenses. Thankfully, the two brands had the wherewithal to keep the rest of the detailing classic — meaning they’re neither over nor underdone. There’s no word yet on a release date or pricing, but we expect to hear more news soon. In the meantime, you can sign up for email updates.
