Persol's heritage can best be described as unique, exclusive, and stylish. Since its creation in 1917, Persol's founder Giuseppe Ratti began to push the boundaries of eyewear fashion; hand-crafting sunglasses for pilots and sports car drivers. Since then, Persol has continued to go beyond eyewear trends. Designed and crafted in Italy, Persol meaning "for the sun", is a favorite among celebrities and trendsetters for its unmatched fit and attention to detail. Persol sunglasses provide optimal protection through a cystal lense, and their frame choices offer impeccable style.
