About Persol The Brand
Persol are one of the oldest eyewear brands in the world, beginning manufacture in 1917 started by Italian optician Giuseppe Ratti, they began making sunglasses for pilots and drivers, aimed at the 'gentleman racer'. The frames began to be picked up by the armed forces; soon to be followed by the rich and famous in racing, motorcycling and flying circles. The brand became synonymous with well-made, protective eyewear, trademarking its unmistakable arrow logo seen on the temples of all their frames which was inspired by the shape of a warrior's sword. They continued to innovate, creating style from function - their frames began to find themselves on the faces of Hollywood stars as well as pilots and sportsmen. Today, Persol frames are still made in Lauriano, Turin as they always have been.
About the Persol Typewriter Collection
Persol's inspiration for this collection came from humble typewriter and the golden age of writing. They feature the classic American Typewriter font on the inner arm, with a laser-cut bridge and typewriter-key inspired rivets. This tie together of technology with vintage tradition is typical of Persol's approach to design.
