From “Per il Sole” to Steve McQueen
The word “Persol” comes from “Per il Sole,” which means “for the sun” in Italian. This company had its roots in the production of protective glasses for the Italian air force and armed forces. That was the beginning of one of the most famous brands in the world of glasses.
Steve McQueen™ – a legend and an icon
Steve McQueen, the legendary actor of the sixties and seventies, became the face and icon for Persol sunglasses. He became popular as a counterculture icon in the sixties, and his Persol model 714 sunglasses became his trademark. In the movie “The Thomas Crown Affair” from 1968, Steve McQueen wears this model of glasses, which contributed to their popularity. His commitment to these glasses was not only on film, but also in real life.
