• Italy's Persol were one of the world's first producers of sunglasses.
• Designed as a more practical variant of the 649 model, the 714 sunglasses were the first foldable frames to reach the market upon their launch in 1960.
• The precision construction of the 714 frames entails 10 additional production stages compared to Persol's other models.
• Handmade in Italy.
• The frames are moulded by hand in a particularly thick and solid acetate.
• Tinted lenses offering 100% UV protection.
• Filter category 3 (scale 0-4), dark lenses.
• Persol's iconic arrow emblem on the sidepieces.
• Flexible Meflecto steel reduces pressure on the temples.
• Presented in a Persol leather case with cleaning cloth.
• Size 54.
Like so many other legendary brands, sunglasses producer Persol was conceived as the solution to a problem: In the 1950s, Turin’s trams still featured completely open cabs, leaving their drivers exposed to the elements, and particularly the blinding Mediterranean sun. This was a major problem when navigating the Italian city’s densely populated centre. Persol’s first sunglasses, with the model designation PO 649, were created as a solution to this dilemma but quickly gained much wider recognition, becoming an almost instant classic.
