Persol Limited Edition “Black Ice” Sunglasses

May 01, 2019

Introduced in the 60s as a folding version of the 649 model, the 714 model by Italian eyeglass maker Persol were the world’s first folding glasses! Producing them takes ten more manufacturing steps than the original version.
The 714 model was made famous by actor Steve McQueen, who wore them with great panache in the Thomas Crown Affair. The 714S model improves on this design, with polarized mirror lenses in a black frame. Ultra-chic!
